I told my Dad, what luck to have a birthday in Spring (even the first day of Spring). There are always fresh flowers to bring in, the weather is cooperative luring the celebration out of doors if fancy strikes. And after wintering for several months, all are ready to party. And party we did!
Chinese RedBud! (These grow wild here at the edge of the forests)
Gifts a go!
Camelias from the neighbor's tree (shhhh)
Boston lettuce and golden beet salad, Green Goddess dressing
Nigella seed rolls, cinnamon rolls
Broiled salmon with mustard-balsamic glaze and watercress, (and the background boy digging for good measure)
My Dad turned 57. Olivia turns 26 on Friday. We did double duty and fashioned a fiesta for both!
I love having them both in hugging distance.
