I am a lover of horticulture, gardening and the environment. At age 8, I sent away for a package of Zinnia seeds for 10 cents and I've been hooked ever since. After 25 years of being self-employed, I retired. That only lasted 4 years and I now work in a water conservation program: I buy grass from homeowners who are willing to convert to desert landscaping and lose that thirsty green stuff. I pursue what interests me and you can blame my sister for getting me into this blogging thing.

Birthday parties

Recently we celebrated my husband's 75th birthday. That seems like a great milestone to me. Three-quarters of a century! It seems the years have rolled by in the blink of an eye. He was a very handsome 26 year old man when I met him. In service to his country, he had traveled worldwide. I was impressed. Our marriage produced 3 sons and now we have 7 grandchildren.

It isn't often we get together, but for this special event, our whole family came from around the country. Since the party was held on Mother's Day, I hired a caterer to make the food so I didn't have to do too much work. As quick as they all arrived, it seems they left for home. Our oldest granddaughter is in Israel this week on a trip to see the holyland. Everyone is back to their daily routine. It was wonderful to see everyone in one place at one time. It took a few days to recuperate from all the activities but well worth the effort. We have wonderful memories of our short visit with our family. Come again soon.
