I got something VERY special yesterday. It came in the mail, and Cliff brought it out to the raised beds where Cynda and I were working. When I opened it I almost burst into tears. There was my Clifton D (the love of my life) holding the amazing Petty Boy, one of our Certified Therapy Dogs, in the most beautiful painting. The detail is so amazing that it looks like a photo. I don't think I've every received a birthday gift quite like this one. It is a family treasure to me, and will be to our children some day.

Thank you for the birthday wishes. And Kevin, how could I not be happy, with all that God has given me. So many friends, family and wonderful memories. And I just keep receiving blessings. Never ending.

Thank you so much Jim for doing this painting. The camera does not do it justice Marilyn. Wish you could see it in person.

Wow Jim did amazing work. I would have sworn it's a photograph!

Isn't it neat what the Semp world has brought us?

Actually the plant people have brought me SO much more to my life. So many have become lifelong friends. Between plants and music (and science too) I feel like a very rich and blessed person.

The wonders of my purple passion flower, and then the amazing bark of a snakebark maple from China. It is of course Pere Davids maple or Acer Davidii, and is stunningly beautiful.

My beloved tree ferns and a gorgeous Acer palmatum 'Osakazuki'
There is Acer palmatum 'Senkaki' or the coral bark maple in the background. Plus a few more.
Group hug Hurray! Angel
