My jar is full…

What a wonderful week I’ve had celebrating my birthday. My daughter likes to say when someone does something nice for someone else, they’ve filled their bucket. My bucket is over-flowing today. And my jar, too!

This lovely jar of glass stones is a gift from one of my garden blogging friends and I can’t wait to find the right spot in the garden to sprinkle them for a splash of color.

Clearly, I am a garden geek, because my friends and family all blessed me with many wonderful garden gifts. They include a great mini spade, gloves, a shiny new trowel, some solar lanterns and gift cards from the Natural Gardener and Callahan’s. I also got plants, garden decor and beautiful stepping stones.

I am also enjoying an inspirational print, lavender-scented things, books, scrapbook embellishments and chocolate. And a lovely flower arrangement from my DH.
Austin gave me a beautiful 64 degree day and sunshine, which I spent having lunch and a design brainstorming session with many fellow Austin garden bloggers.

The night before, my Mom and Dad made me a wonderful dinner and the whole family was there.

It just doesn’t get any better than this.

My bucket is definitely overflowing.

Mother Nature’s Birthday Wishes

Boy oh Boy, did Mother Nature send me beautiful birthday wishes today. It was 88 stunning and sunny degrees here and my Maggie rose opened to the most amazing bloom today — all just for me. How special.

Isn’t she lovely?
