Hola Cottage Fix Friends! Yesterday Honey and I celebrated 20 years of marriage bliss, my how time does fly by. It was a cloudy, muggy Virginia sort of day, but we made the most of it. Making the most of things and laughing at one self is the secret to “happily ever after” I’d say. If you ask honey, he’d say communication. He’s probably right. One thing we both learned to do over the years is “just say yes” to each other. Life’s too short.We popped open a bottle of champagne for happy hour last night, enjoyed a candlelight supper with the kids (they had soda), and we all had a relaxing evening in. We were hoping to take a romantic getaway, just the two of us, to celebrate, but we had a hard time coordinating our schedules this year. Hopefully it will be postponed to later this fall.So I’m blogging in today with Friday Flower Power of the greenish yellow variety. In some worlds, I believe they call this chartreuse. It’s a fresh happy color and I’m a little surprised by how much I like it. Chartreuse does not make a regular appearance here on the sun porch, or anywhere in the cottage really. But, ya know, I’m diggin’ it!Since the weather has cooled off slightly, I’m arranging my bouquets outdoors. It makes a world of difference with clean up and I like being outside in the garden. I’m not sure yet what I’m planting out here for fall this year. Last year I went with cabbages and purple violas. The cabbages looked great until well into the winter, the violas not so much.
Thanks for stopping by!
