Lorraine, your flowers are just fantastic. I remember a few years ago when you were in a serious drought. Now lots of showers and flowers. Those white hydrangeas are my favorite!

It would be nice if we could send some of our Colorado sunshine in exchange for some much needed rain :)

Thank you for your birthday best wishes, Lorraine!
