As a lot of you already know,we celebrated our Ruby Wedding last Sunday,and thanks on behalf of us both,for all your good wishes,and many congratulations..I thought you might like to see some lovely flowers we received on our special day..
The first unexpected surprise was from Julia (Waddy) a good friend ,and her husband,Richard..such a lovely thought,and much appreciated..


These beautiful,ruby red Roses were from Carole and Harry…again.totally unexpected ,and also very welcome indeed as a token of our friendship over the past four years.


This pretty bouquet of assorted Roses was from another true friend,and a former work Colleague of over 30 years..

and lastly,but by no means least,a very special gift from our daughter,her partner,and Grandson Thomas..which has pride of place on the outside wall,and gives us much pleasure when we are in our garden..

We feel truly blessed to have such good friends and Family..thank you to you all :o) xxx

Aww Sandra.... your flowers are beautiful, but the gift from Alison,Marc and Thomas, brought a lump in my throat.I bet it brought tears to your eyes didn't it?

What thoughtful friends you have Sandra! I am partial to red roses so I think that one is my favorite. That poem at the end really hits home too. Congratulations on your Ruby Wedding Anniversary. I hope you have many more fond years to come. all the best.

Thank you Paul..

So glad your special day went well. The flowers are beautiful (Who would have thought of using hypericum berries in an arrangement?) You'll have the photos to treasure long after the flowers are gone too.
And your lovely wall plaque is a permanent reminder.
Wishing you many more happy years.

Thank you Sue..and I would never have thought of using Hypericum berries either..they really do set the flowers off nicely,don't they? We have a lot of lovely memories to look back on,with the help of the Internet,and digital photography,don't we? plus I don't have a mountain of printed photo's to store anymore..although we do print special ones off,for family..It doesn't seem that long ago,we were sending them off to Bonus Print,and getting a free film back with them ! Lol.

congrats to you both . wow 40 yrs that's wonderful. the flowers are so pretty and thoughtful and I really do like the wall plaque. I think the fact it is monochrome really makes it even special a touch of class.
