43 yrs ago...


Our daughter sent us this...43 years ago we said our vows.    So long as it is not like our 40th  anniversary I will not complain...he had a mini stroke on our 40th, followed by the brain bleed on Aug 2. 

The flowers came at the perfect time....when it was thundering and beginning to rain so sure served as a bright spot to the day.


I have never seen this plant in flowers before.  It reminds me of the Silver Dust I used to buy, but not exactly like it.  So maybe it is a different variety?  I don't know.

These are absolutely gorgeous! I have never seen an arrangement like it! I love the all yellow theme, and unusual plants. You need to keep the pictures to look at them after they are gone.

Happy Anniversary. Your flowers are so pretty. That is an unusual flower and I bet you will hunt down the name of it. If not Google, call the florist. The last three years seem to have passed quickly.
xx, Carol

Happy Anniversary! Those are gorgeous and that Silver Dust is very unusual in a bouquet. Glad this was a better anniversary then 40. God bless both of you.

Hiya Rose! That 'flower' is ornamental kale - a cabbage! These have been used for quite some time now to make interesting and different bouquets. The last well, too. You can grow them in your garden. Am happy to have connected with you! YAM xx
