Today we celebrated Andrew’s Birthday. His birthday was on the 28th of April, but that was such a bad day, with major thunderstorms and the weather was cold. So son Sayeed decided he will have it today instead, on his drive way. We went there around five and he had chairs on the drive way, a fire going in a big open vessel, barbecue with steaks and chicken , buttered corn, mashed potatoes, and grilled brussel sprouts. He also had hot dogs and S’mores for the children.
We sat in a large circle about three to four feet apart. It was such a fun evening to see the family. The little boys were so excited to see the older cousins, Noah and Davis. I made a sign for Andrew, (beside the card and the gifts), which I think came out really good.
He loved it. Can’t believe he is ten years old. Seems like he was a baby just yesterday.
The garden has started blooming. The birds are building their nests. I have several bird feeders in the back, and this morning when I went to fill the feeders, I saw that one of the feeders was converted into a shelter home. The picture doesn’t look clean because of all the seeds and grain that went into it all year(s) long. But I was amazed at how cleverly the tiny twigs were layered. I have other nesting condos for them, but they chose this one. I think it is cute.
I thought you would get a kick out of seeing this.
The cherry blossoms are going to town. The four trees are full of blooms. I love them so much. The petals are just perfect and almost transparent.
Also, the rhododendrons are beginning to show off. I love these blooms.
And finally the apple blossoms. Soon they will shed their petals, and the grass will be covered by them. Spring! what beauty it brings!
Have a great weekend.
