This weekend we are having company! When we first moved out here, it seemed every weekend we had people come-but that was just the first few months. Then it didn't just taper off-it stopped! I am glad to have Bob and Elizabeth (my Sis and BIL and their family) come to stay with us a whole weekend!
One thing that I really love about my Mattie is that he recognizes the great beauty of flowers and the wonderful addition it makes to hospitality. When he worked near a store (in NY), he used to surprise me with them every now and then and even when we moved here-out in the boonies, during the summer he would stop by the roadside and gather a few wildflowers.
Needless to say, I took the opportunity to treat myself for the occasion of my sister coming. These beauties, coupled with the $2.00 tulips from last week...my house is starting to resemble an easter bonnet and oh, how I love it!
Here are a few shots of my company flowers...now off to get cleaning! :-)
