Flower of the Week – Wildflowers and Birthday Wishes Ruthie!

Dear Mom,

Flowers for you and Ruthie! The timing is perfect in that it is Ruthie’s birthday, but I also think that she’d like wildflowers. Honestly, I’m not sure what her favorite flower is, so hopefully she’ll enjoy these.

And of course, the Smeagol and Kitty have to get in there and tear them up faster than I can enjoy them. I’m surprised I was able to shoot a picture.

I didn’t take any outside pictures of the wild flowers because for one, the pink phlox were all chewed off and the other areas didn’t look so hot. And I wonder why.

I can't remember any tales of when you gave birth to Ruthie. I'm sure she was a more welcomed surprise than I was. If you're going to have one accident, you might as well have two to entertain the first one. And I'm sure glad it happened that way. Even though Ruthie and I fought a lot when we were younger, life would not have been the same without her. We are the best of buds now and she's my sweet 'lil di-di. You'd be so proud of her.

Wishing Ruthie happy days, hopefully on the cooler side. Love you.


  1. Happy birthday to your Ruthie! Love the wildflowers. When I was younger I was all about the roses, but these days I'm thrilled with a bouquet of wildflowers in a coffee can. They are so happy! (And you know I love your cats, too.)

  2. I love wild flowers and would have a yard full if I could. I wrote astory about wildflowers, once. Happy Birthday to Ruthie!

  3. Hi Lynn,
    What a touching tribute to your mom and sister. Sisters are such wonderful gifts. Tomorrow I'm eating lunch with two of mine. It's always a fun time.
    Oh, and your wildflowers are quite lovely--and the cats are quite cute.


Thanks for commenting. I don't always comment back, but I do appreciate it.
