Jubilee. . part one. .

How to make a girl feel special. . .

on her year of Jubilee. .
Part one. . the flowers. . . .


If she is your grammie . .. give her a princess tiara . . .

and a bouquet in pink. . .with the prettiest blue vase.


If she is your Monday night dinner club friend .. .
(and Monday night happens to fall exactly on her 50th birthday)
make it special .. .
and then send her home with the centerpiece ..
Orange roses. . .and red tulips

If she is in your care group ..
have high tea with her at Tracy cakes. .

and give her ruffly edged yellow tulips. .

If she is your little sister. . .
when she least expects it. . .
send her a bouquet .. .and imagine her eyes getting a bit watery. .
because she is a wee bit sentimental.



If she is a cousin you rarely see. .
but you are family and family does sweet things. .
give her a bunch of tulips that are fresh and crisp and last for days.


If she is your niece. . .
love her. . .treat her with kindness and affirm her. . . .
invite her over for dinner with some of her cousins. . and then send her home. ..
with the loveliest lime tinged yellow roses.
(it is that kind of thoughtfulness that makes a beautiful lady. . .a favorite aunt)


If she is the girl you fell in love with. . .
and she still feels your love. . .after 31 years . .
give her dozens of yellow roses ..
the exact hue of her bridal bouquet. .
Tommorow. . the things that people do.
All for now. .with love,

  3. What fun to see the variety of flowers and vases all in the snow. So that's the way you're keeping them all fresh!

    Beautiful, beautiful, you are one well-loved lady!

    (That orange and red bouquet was so unusual and striking. I've never seen such a unexpected delight in flower combinations.)

  6. Wow..it WAS a good thing the furry weather forecaster got that last snow thing wrong...that blanket of snow made for the best backdrop to record the beauty of those flowers ...while the sweetness of friends and family was recorded in another way...in your heart forever.

  19. I enjoyed all your flowers. You were "Showered with Flowers....and all so different in their own way. I felt as though I was shopping at 1 800 Flowers. (That may be a US thing).

    You must feel very loved and you should. You are a special lady.
