Now really I don't celebrate birthdays and last year's 24 hour party was fabulous but I am getting older than dirt these days. Will be having granddaughter and Tim & Amy and new baby to be arriving later today for the weekend and am not sure when they will be going home.
Will try to pop in tomorrow to say hello and then will be back on Sunday late afternoon or early evening. But then it is back to work on Monday so I won't be drinking all night this time and dancing on tables and such, lest that is what I say for now LOL!
Just a simple Happy B-day from my DG friends in the cafe is more than sufficient so please don't get carried away (you know who you are LOL)!!!
Bless all your hearts,
Candee

Candee, Thank you for starting the new thread with such a lovely arrangement!
You must be exhaused preparing the new Cafe', you have an early night dear.... LoL!
See you tomorrow!








Psssssssst!!!! Blossom, call me when the coast is clear!

Scotia, CA(Zone 9b)

When a friend is feelin' "older than dirt"
A bit of chocolate cake can't hurt...
I'll purdy it up with a spray of black roses
and a single candle so we won't need fire hoses.

Candee, I want to wish you a beautiful day,
and giggles and grins while you play
with the grandbabies who I know you adore.
That's it, that's all, I'll say no more...

Except... HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

What a nifty birthday greeting and arrangement, Zany. Candee - you are so lucky to have a personalized rhyme.

As I said, I can't write poetry worth a darn, but here is an arrangement for your eyes and nose. One of the best smelling flowers in the world. Happy birthday!! and it is actually your birthday now since you are three hours later than I am here in California.

And Candee, yes, I did notice that it is now the flower POT cafe. Are you going to be stashing some in some nooks and crannies somewhere? I have never tried any - will be a hoot of a party, I am sure.

Hi Terri - that cup of latte was the perfect start for the day. Love your forsythias!! Sometimes the simple no fuss ones are the best. What is the other yellow blossoms lurking in the back ground?

Candee - hope you are having a wonderful birthday day with your family. Here is a spring hat for the birthday gal. I dusted it off specially for you - my eldest daughter made it as a girl scout project years ago.

And once the birthday gal stops by, we can throw the "confetti" at her.

Hope whoever has clean up duty at the cafe won't mind the mess. It is, after all, for a good cause. LoL.

Hi Dianne, Ohh thats so pretty, Candee will love it! Great idea for the confetti, I think it's Plantgeeks turn to tidy up, so thats ok. haha!
The yellow flowers are Kerria or something like that!!

Oh Zany that is beautiful, what a wonderful gift you have to give. The cake is my favorite chocolate! How did you know?
Dianne I have never tried any either and am sure I won't be starting to anytime soon, I am already goofy enough. Thank you for the lovely scents, I feel all perky just looking at them.
Oh blossom, that is a gorgeous color in that rose you fave me, will have to find a special spot for it.
I am wearing my new garden hat and I must say, I look younger than ever in it.
What a great party you have thrown for me, confetti fireworks and candy. You are just all too special.
Hey geek Happy Day your way as well, here have some of my candy and you can wear the hat today, I wore it all day yesterday!
Elle, thank you for your warm wishes and hope you get to have some extra time in the cafe soon.
Wow, am I tired from all the partying, so it is especially nice to sit a spell here in the cafe and enjoy all the hard work that everyone has gone to just to put a smile on this ole face!

Laurel, DE(Zone 7a)

I must apologize for not being able to stay long. How rude of me after all the hard work all of you have gone to to make sure I had the happiest of birthdays, but I have to go. Will surely catch back up with you all tomorrow.
Thanks so much again everyone, I really cherish the friendships I have here at the cafe and wish each of you a wealth of the joy you have given to me.

Sue - nice of you to pop in when you can. Hope to see more of you soon. And am looking forward to see what kinds of fall flowers you have. Have fun with all your visitors.

Louisville, KY

Happy Birthday eveyone! lol Wow, this is quite the party. Blooms and sweets and friends everywhere. Hey, I was only being sarcastic by singing that Beatles song. But thanks. I'll take the $$ Dianne. lol

Candee, love the hat. Just the right thing for spring.

Got a bit of good news, one of my poems got accepted in the new issue of Earth's Daughters. Whoohoo! And another got selected for reading on WRFL in Lexington, Ky last Friday. They have a show called Accents, a whole hour of literature. Y'all can hear it if you google WRFL, Lexington. Scroll down to the archives and click onto the last entry dated March 20.

Ooops, gotta run.

Laurel, DE(Zone 7a)

Congrats geek, you an Zany are quite the artists in our cafe. We are very proud of your accomplishments.
Dianne you are lucky, my gd knows a little chinese but she is only 3 and went home yesterday !!! so nobody can tell, thanks I can sure use the cash.
Terri, that drink went down real smooth after a very long, tiring weekend. Eva sure can wear this old broad out!
Yardqueen thank you so much for the violet, they are such a delicate plant, I will be very careful in my care of her.
Blossom are you sure the bedrock is older???
