My DH decided to throw me a surprise party for my 58th birthday.OH dear am I really that old??? He told me about it at 8:30 in the morning and then he wanted me to go with him to buy hotdogs & hamburgers, ice ect. I ended up making potato salad, rice krispies treats and jello shots. Thank God he invited only a few of my closest friends. Some couldn't make it. It's hard to change plans when you are given a day's notice.
He did buy me a beautiful and tasty cake. and I did get some real nice gifts. I got 2 beautiful hanging wind chimes. one is an angel the other a bee. Nancy gave me the beautiful dish towel she designed. That will get a lot of use. I do love birthday party's but I don't like getting older. Next year my DH Jim will be turning 50!!!I think I'll give him a party. And I'll let him know a week before so he will clean the garage again.

Just a few pictures of my plants. The bottom one has straw flowers in it, not sure what else I put in there but I just love the feel of the straw flowers. The stand that it is in is a big heavy brass flower stand that at one time was probley in a funeral home. I got it for $4.00 at the thrift store last year. I just love it.
The middle flower is a lilly that is 1/2 way bloomed out. They are beautiful when they are in bloom. The picture on the right is of my tall red flock.( It is the shortest one in this picture. Usually they do better than the picture looks. I have the entire side of the garage with just the tall red flock. I usually get people who want a picture of them in bloom. My garage is yellow so they looked great for years. This year the deer are eating more and more of them so I only have green nubbed off plants there this year. It was the only thing my dad could actually see from his house.
