Anniversary Bouquet

Bloomster's Bouquet

Bloomster’s Bouquet

We celebrated our wedding anniversary this past weekend at the historic De Anza Hotel in San Jose. My man of 18 years had these beautiful flowers waiting for me in our room. I think they’re exquisite and a nice metaphor for a long marriage: colorful, textured and varied.

We had the most amazing rain this weekend as well, a rare treat after a record-breaking, year-long drought.  I arrived back home to an invigorated garden, two orange peppers, and a still-producing assortment of cherry tomatoes.  After a weekend of over-indulgence, it was good to eat a small salad, fortified from our garden.
