Today's Flowers: Anniversary Roses


Many of my regular readers will remember that there was much celebrating to do in my little corner of the world over the Christmas holidays. I have since blogged about baby Lily's first birthday and my daughter's twenty-seventh birthday. Over the holidays Hubs and I celebrated our 34th wedding anniversary. These are some of the beautiful white roses I was surprised with.
A Closeup
Our Wedding Day
This is my favorite photo from the day. We didn't pose for it. The keen eye of our photographer just captured the moment.

Candid shots are the best! That's where all the real emotions can be found.

I see you still have all your hair. How about your hubby?

What lovely white roses for a wonderful occasion! I've shared the last roses from my yard this week at Happily Retired Gal and Sacred Ruminations, especially for all those folks who are currently snowbound. I'll be cutting those bushes back in the next week or two so I'll have no NEW roses to share until Spring time.
Hugs and blessings,

Hi there. Sorry I've been such a stranger. I just don't find time for visiting blogs like I used to. I scanned through some posts here and love to see all the pictures. Your Lily is growing so fast...just as ours is :) Best wishes to you for a wonderful and happy year.

Carletta: What a neat wedding photo. Sometimes the best ones aren't the posed ones. The white roses are beautiful. Congrats on 34 years.

Beautiful shot of the wedding. And look at the hair style.

chapmand1952 said...

Love the candid shot of your wedding and thought that you might like to have it refurbished a bit using photoshop. Somewhat of a hobby for me. I don't know how to get it back to you. If you get to see this posting and would like a copy pls email me at chapmand1952@gmail.com. Happy Aniversary!

Someone still remembers how to treat a lady!
And here's the proof that "You don't birng my flowers" is only a fantastic duet between Barbara Streisand and Neil Diamond :)

Great white rose that is ... congratulations on your 34th and now, if you don't mind, keep on the good mood for the 35th!

Leedra said...

We've only begun....Love the song playing with this post. Was that your song back then. The unposed photos are the favorites. You both look like flower children with your hair styles.

The white roses are pretty.
