9/11 and 94

boxofrox(z8 PNW)September 11, 2011

Today as we honor the memory of all those we lost ten years ago we are also personally celebrating the 94th birthday of my wife's stepmother Sally. My garden is slowly descending into autumn and like many times just prior to harvest, I doubt that I'll have enough to make a worthy bouquet and then vwwwwaaaaaallllllaaaaaaa................;-)

Here's a couple of shots of my little Okie and several of the memorial bouquet. We have a beautiful 16x20 picture of the pre-911 NYC skyline displayed in our window and our prayers go out to all who lost so much. Thanks for looking, hope you enjoy and may God heal and continue to bless America !!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks guys ;-)

I had her daughter take a picture with the bouquet on her lap in her power chair. I will post it as soon as she emails it to me.

Priceless indeed! She's lovelier than the bouquet and that's hard to do!

What a wonderful tribute to both Boxo! I spaced out and thought I had written all my whoo-hoos! I must have failed to push the send button and only previewed uggh! I've just been so swamped with freelancing and the AKC dog trial weekends back-to-back and have been very sleep-deprived! So my brains are floating out in space, hehe.....

A Happy and Wonderful Belated Birthday to Grandma Sally! She looks so happy and what gorgeous Bouquets Boxo!!!! So many great and wonderful reds! and it's great to see AD doing his big apricot show as well!

Veteran's Honor is the perfect rose too, Seil, to send on this Day.
