Monday was Husband Walter’s birthday, the big Seven-0, in fact.
We started celebrating on the Saturday before the big day with a meal at a favorite restaurant and a visit to a local establishment with lush and colorful plants for sale. Hubby loves hibiscus and picked out two that were covered in red blooms and had lots of buds ready to open.

Their selection of hibiscus was far superior to what was available at the big box stores in our area. And this family-owned operation doesn’t let plants dry out and languish unhappily.
We continued the birthday treats through his actual birthday with more eating out, a shopping excursion and savoring treats, cards, calls and birthday wishes from kids, grands, friends and family.
I started a birthday post but failed to press on when stymied by slow Internet woes. Hubby persevered, however, and kept to his schedule of publishing every Tuesday on his travel blog with his post here.
I am so blessed to share life with this special guy.
