Lily

The fragrance of Oriental lilies is filling the house . . .

 
A lovely reward for having staggered to the advanced age of 69 . . . 
Consider the alternative, as they say . . .

I'm just happy to be here, eating Thai curry, Key Lime pie, and 
dark chocolate . . .  drinking sparkling wine . . . 

And reading The Hunger Games -- wow, what a story!

Happy Birthday, Vicki! You've now reached the same age I am, and I promise you it's not so bad. May you continue to sniff beautiful lilies and other blossoms for many years to come.

Many happy returns, Vicki! Sounds as though you're celebrating in real style - raises glass.

69 years! Well done, that's awesome! Okay, I've been a bit intrigued by the praise I've been hearing about Hunger Games, but if it has your vote then I think it's definitely a safe gamble. I'm putting a hold on at the library and checking it out.

Happy Birthday, Vicki! And many more!

Happy Birthday! It sounds like you are having a nice celebration. I really enjoyed reading the Hunger Games, and am glad you are too.
Wishing you many more happy birthdays!

May your special day reflect how much you've done in your life, and may how much you've given to others come back your way. You are just 6 months older than me, so I'll continue to listen to your words of wisdom. Kidding, I would anyway. Blessings.

My birthday was yesterday and it was a lovely day. I read Hunger Games in one big gulp. Fantastic story telling! After I read the next two in the trilogy, I'll do a post.

Barbara Rogers said...

well when I counted right, I discovered I'm actually 6 mos older than you...but who's counting?

Inger said...

Happy Birthday! I'm a few years older. I've heard so much about The Hunger Games. If you like the book, I might read it. I love the lily, so perfectly captured.

Lilies remind me of the fifties when it was a favorite perfume of many women. -- barbara

Happy Birthday! Gorgeous photos. Got a kick out of this post - I just finished the Hunger Games and am headlong into Catching Fire. My 13 year old nephew read them last year... I could never have imagined I would enjoy a "young adult" book so much. Wow!
