Perfect Purple

How perfectly purple and lush are these absolutely gorgeous lilacs that burst into bloom two days ago on the miniature lilac bush in the garden.

Have a marvelous weekend & a very Happy Father's Day to the wonderful men in my life who are father's, grandpa's, grandfather's and poppa's.

This is my first Father's Day without my dad. It hit me suddenly the other day when I went out to pick up cards and gifts. Suddenly while standing in front of the cards I realized, I only needed to pick up one card ~ for my father-in-law. This year there would be no morning phone call or the usual visit to see him, maybe take dinner over for my parents or just let him know I love him.

"Time goes by so fast, people go in and out of your life. You must never miss the opportunity to tell these people how much they mean to you."

A very special Happy Father's Day to my brother-in-law Paul. He and his wife Sarah welcomed their first daughter ~ Grace yesterday morning into the world.

Happy 1st Father's Day Paul and welcome to our third niece ~ baby Grace (aka "Little Pea").
