Riot of Colour

My riot of colour came a little sooner than I expected! Yay! I really like the orange tulips. I should cut some to take inside. This is the first time in my life that I have enough blooms to cut. Don't mind how awful my grass looks...or the circle of dirt where I dug up that burning bush. I bought some grass seed the other day that I need to do something with. I also bought some slug poison. Am I evil? The package says it's not toxic to plants or pets, and can be used around food plants. But it didn't mention babies. Good think JK is too young to play in the backyard by herself. The bridal shower was a lot of fun. There was about 75 people there. I'm doing an advice book for the bride and groom, so we put little cards on the tables for people to write on and announced it twice. We only got 21 back with anything written! That's pretty bad! I have 160 slots in the album I'm using. This was the gift table...with only about half of the gifts. First prize goes to whoever can find my gift in the picture! They filled the hallway, and took until 10:00 pm to open. I was writing them down for the bride and my hand was sore! It hurt when I brushed my teeth last night. A & R are so blessed, and they deserve it. I am thrilled that they are getting married.

  2. I LOVE the close-up of the orange tulip. You should frame that one. I'm glad your shower went well. I can't believe more people didn't write advice. When we do that, I always write two or three cards worth. I have ALOT of advice.

  3. Hi Jo :)

    I'm so glad to hear the shower went well. It's too late for my advice which is always... Marry someone you can talk to, because one day that might be all you can do ;)
