Ever since I’ve had a home of my own, I’ve bought myself flowers to plant on my birthday. When I lived in Virginia I could buy pretty much anything I wanted and put it in the ground right away, but up here in New Hampshire I have one choice – pansies. They’re the only flower that won’t die on me before mid-May.

As soon as the nursery down the road from me opens this morning I’ll be there buying as many purple pansies as I can. Happy Birthday to me!

(Last year’s pansies!)

Do you ever do anything special just for yourself on your birthday?

Please remember Maddie and Thalon in your prayers today.

    Hippy, Happy, Hoppy Birthday! I always make sure there are lots of good books waiting for me to read – but wait – that’s every day, not just my birthday:} Actually, I have a wonderful family that make birthdays very special. Hope you have a wonderful day!
