A lovely bush we bought for our sixty fifth wedding anniversary to plant in a corner of the garden, - an Exochord Macrantha called "The Bride" Pearl Bush.
And here is another picture of a Bride taken sixty-five years ago today on the morning of our wedding day. I call it The Pensive Bride.
Was I reluctant, - oh no, never - but it was a big step I was taking moving away from family and friends with this handsome man who just twelve days ago was arriving in New York Harbour, returning from service overseas with the RCAF/RAF.
We celebrated quietly today. A drive, then out for dinner. When we make Seventy we will have a party! Fireworks and a live band and a carnival, as one of our grandsons suggests!
Hope you can join us......
