A SPRING SURPRISE~

Hi all~
Just a quick note tonite.
I am such a warm weather person, and so look forward to Spring and Summer each year.
So this weekend, to celebrate Springs much anticipated arrival, My sweet Husband surprised me with a beautiful bouquet of Tulips. They are such a pretty watermelon pink color in real life.
He also got a smaller bouquet for the window ledge in our master bath, so I get to enjoy a bit of spring when I am upstairs also.
One year, in summer, he brought me home several big Magnolia blossoms and put them in little glasses of water all about the house. He had picked them himself on his lunch hour. It was my first year living in the south, and I was enamored with their sweet fragrance. Little did either of us know~ until we saw them hopping around~ that little green tree frogs love to hide in the Magnolias large leathery leaves. They didnt jump out of the flowers until about the 2nd or 3rd day, and they were in the bedroom, bathroom and kitchen. We had a time chasing after them to put them back outside.
Now he goes to the store, and buys me flowers~LOL.
Many thanks for stopping by...
