40 Years

Good Morning!

Yesterday was Fletcher's and my 40th Wedding Anniversary!  How is it possible that so much time/so many years have gone by?

Two of my favorite pictures from that day



Believe I've shared the first one with you before.  40 years ago we had terrific thunderstorms.  Good luck!!  We spent that night at the Black Bass Inn in New Hope and watched a thunderstorm come up the river.  The next day we were off - heading to Nova Scotia for our honeymoon.  We both look quite a bit different these days, but it's been a fun 40 years and there is no one I'd rather spend my life with than Fletch.  💗

It was a beautiful weekend here in Eastern PA.  Our Siberian Iris have opened up (these are in our wetlands area - our bog).


And we have (so far) one gorgeous yellow iris that has opened.


Fletch picked some radishes:


but they were small, and both tough and rubbery.  Not sure why that is, but not good.  Our sugar snap peas are blossoming now and we should start to see some produce by the end of the week.  Also the garlic scapes have appeared!  YUM.  I'm thinking of making home-made pesto and adding the scapes to that.

I'm at work this morning (and will be through at least Thursday).  The front entrance to the building now has a party canopy so there is no need to worry about fallout from the hawks!  LOL.  I did see one of the baby hawks this morning on the nest.  Kevin was in yesterday and said he only saw one, so the other one may have already flown.  I'll try to get a picture later.

Time to get to work - will be a busy day.  Hope your week is a good one.

  1. Happy Anniversary! Forty years is really something, and I bet that part of that is due to the fun you had when you started as evidenced in your photos) and the fun you are probably still having! Your iris are beautiful and I hope you have a good week at work!

  2. Happy anniversary! I love seeing those pictures of you two! So fun! The funny thing is -- my parents went to New Hope on their honeymoon. I think they might even have stayed in the same inn! And my husband and I -- we spent our honeymoon in Nova Scotia!! Talk about coincidences! lol! Anyway, 40 years is fantastic! We have a few years yet till we reach our 40th. This year will be our 37th. I think. lol!

  7. I love that happy picture of the two of you! Happy 40th, and may there be many more.

    I'm getting Iris Fever. I've seen so many pictures of lovely irises (irii? LOL) on people's blogs, that I'm wondering where I can shoehorn some into my wee backyard.

  16. Happy Anniversary! I would say we all look a little different than we did when we were married. At least we do. Ha. You look so happy together. I love the iris. They are as pretty as the bride.
