Anniversary Bouquet matted and framed

With today’s lovely wedding that I am attending and our three family wedding anniversaries all within two weeks of each other this anniversary bouquet from last year was just asking to be matted and framed. Wishing much Happiness and Joy to the happy couple today and a very Happy Anniversary to us all, but especially to the love of my life for Monday❤️

August 11th and 12th, 2017 will be forever remembered as two days of infamy that brought terror, shame, evil and murder to the streets of Charlottesville, Virginia. I send my condolences to the family and friends of Heather Heyer, murdered as she bravely stood up against bigotry and hatred, and whose words on her Facebook read “If you are not outraged, you are not paying attention.”

I also send condolences to the families and friends of Lt. H. Jay Cullen, Trooper Berke M.M. Bates, who also died as a result of the evil that visited their city.

May they all rest in peace and may Liberty’s flame act as beacon of hope.

Our Lavender Provencal is spectacular this year.

This bouquet picked today is filling the house with its wonderful aroma…

     
 

…but as you can see I couldn’t resist a stopover in the studio on the way.
