Cheers On Your Birthday, Peter!
Happy Birthday to Peter, or Peeder, as we say in America! My father-in-law in England is celebrating a birthday on Sunday, Oct. 14th and I hope all who read this will leave a happy birthday wish for him. He is the best! (I really do try to say Pe-TER, but honestly, I do sound like Dick Van Dyke from Mary Poppins, but at least I am trying!)
In 2010, we were able to get there just in time to be able to go on a bluebell walk, it was so beautiful! I am afraid that the photo above is very much what the poor man has to endure with me around! I think that I must talk his ear off (and Joan too!) and ask about one million questions. Thanks, Peter, for always being so patient with me.
And I know that strawberries are not in season but in June, they are out of this world in England! Trust me on this one. and they don't say "STRAW-berries", you must say, "straw-BUR-ies", that's what it sounds like to me anyway! Hope you have something equally as delightful as this, Peter!
Peter made this owl many years ago. Can you tell that is wire upon nails? I thought it was wonderful and I had to get a picture of him with it. Glad that I did now so I can share this with you!
There are some beautiful gardens in England but the one I love the most is the one that gets the tender loving care from Peter, Gardener Extraordinaire!
Okay, here is something for you, Peter! A little bird told me that you like Katherine Jenkins so here she is singing a great song that Dusty Springfield made famous and I hope you will like it!
Okay, my friends from all over the world, please leave some best wishes for a great birthday for my wonderful father-in-law. And I am thanking all of you in advance for doing so.
Happy Birthday, Peter!
