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......

CONGRATULATIONS!!! Lovely blooms for a very special celebration! And thank you so much for sharing the beautiful pictures -- that big step worked out pretty well, didn't it!

Ill look forward to hearing about that big 70th and each one in between.

My soul, you were a handsome couple. Movie stars, both of you. I wish you both the happiest of anniversaries! How fabulous to have had 65 of them! I can't wait to read about the celebrations for your 70th!

65 years together is so rewarding to hear. My folks celebrated 59 yrs before Dad passed to heaven just a few months shy of their anniversary.
Congratulations and we will be looking forward to seeing pictures of the fireworks and carnival at your 70th.

Wow 65 years together. I thought we were a bit good getting to 51, obviously a few more years to go yet.
Congratulations and wait for the 70.
