Happy Anniversary to Us!

We liked the book, and we liked the movie.  But what we loved was the book cover.

And the bird girl.

Which brings me to the tradition my own true love and I started some years ago.  When it’s our anniversary, instead of buying each other a present, we buy something for us.  And this year, the bird girl is it.

So, the landscapers came in and pulled out the old mulch and landscape fabric for us, then laid down a combination of mulch, stone, and breeze.  Now the bird girl has a place of her own.

Okay, so it’s not a beautiful cemetery in Savannah, and “Early Morning in the Sandelin Backyard” doesn’t have quite the same ring to it as “Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil.”  On the other hand, this one is ours. 

The next step is to get some pots for flowers to add some color to the breeze area where the bench sits.

Isn’t she lovely?  Oh, yes.  She makes us very happy, indeed.
