Hello Lynne, Happy belated Birthday! Your cake looks delicious. The flowers arrangements are lovely. Your great granddaughter is a cutie. Congrats to your grandson on his graduation. We are having some hot and dry weather lately, feel like Florida. I am glad you are feeling better, the pinched nerve sounds painful. Happy Wednesday, enjoy your day!

I was about to congratulate you on your beautiful watercolours, but then read that they are someone else's. Regardless, they are gorgeous. Your flowers and arrangements are lovely, as is your birthday cake! Happy birthday to you! I hope your back heals quickly. -Jenn

First, Happy, Happy Belated Birthday, Lynne! You are beautiful! So many wonderful photos! You know I love the toes dangling in the water! ;) Definitely some watercolor inspiration. I STILL haven't gotten my paints and brushes out after doing taxes like I promised myself! I'm so sorry about your back. After months long struggle with hubby, I am particularly sympathetic. I pray you are feeling better soon. blessings and hugs ~ tanna

Happy Belated Birthday, Lynne. You and Dennis are the same age. :) Your flower boxes are gorgeous, your cake is fabulous, Oakland is growing up too fast, the watercolors are delightful. Sorry about your pinched nerve. Do be kind to yourself. Praying for a quick recovery. Hugs.

Dear Lynne, I wish you could have seen me looking at this post on my iPad. First I looked at the pictures, then the words you wrote, then I looked at the pictures again to try to match them up. So I won't say I love the watercolors you did, but I will say happy birthday to you. And I thank you for the comments you left on my blog....I'm glad we met too. So much still to be thankful for.

It is always so good to read your posts. I don't get by often I know. I do need to write you soon. If I don't get to it, know there is a good reason or I would. I have something I want to tell you when I can. Sending love and a very, very HAPPY BIRTHDAY.
