Flower Power


You could make a wedding bouquet just walking along the driveway picking the wild flowers that grow there. 


Good thing because in a couple of weeks we will celebrate 30 years together. We won't have to spend a dime.



Our bouquet on that first day was a surprise provided by a dear friend who is gone now.


 I was so tickled when she gave it to us...all unexpected, thus all the more welcome. Our elopement plans were shared only with my brother, who had to be roped in to milk for me at the farm where I worked, and her and her husband, who went with us. 



We went out for Chinese afterwards...I had never had Chinese before that, having led a sheltered life.

It is the only way to get married.

You shared your Anniversary with your Grandma and Grandpa didn't you? I can't believe it has been 30 years, but then, you are grandparents three times now, so I guess it has been. Do you get to see Claire and Maddie much anymore? The certainly are beautiful little girls. But of course, Peggy is the sweetest.
Love, Mom

Our 50th anniv. Is July 18. When we got married it was a small wedding but it took I think. I put the top of our cake in the freezer and it is still there also my flowers are in the freezer. My husband is very sick and we are praying he holds on until the 18th, really for many more years. Your flowers are beautiful. I love the yellows.
