Friday Favorite

Husby is a wonderful husband.  He is very handy and smart and kind of handsome to boot.  One thing he's really good at is gardening and landscaping.  It took me a little while to trust his judgment when it came to things like tearing out trees and bushes (terminal or dead, of course) and planting new ones.  Eventually I told myself, okay, he only studied horticulture and worked in the field for a time and I have never taken care of a yard in my life and can't even make houseplants grow so... let go ~ let Husby.  I don't know what I was ever so nervous about.  He works wonders with landscaping.  Here's the best part: he considers what I would like to see in our yard when planning the landscaping.  What a great guy.

About seven years ago he planted something in our backyard after hearing me casually mentioning how much I like it.  Along the fence he most professionally placed three shrubs.  Not just shrubs, my favorite shrubs. 

This Friday's favorite ~ Bridal Wreath.

Every spring I wait patiently for the bright white flowers to bloom.  I'm never disappointed.  Such delicate little flowers they are.

But when the shrubs are in full bloom, they are loaded with a white so brilliant they practically glow in the dark.  Literally! 

Bridal wreath is my favorite today for its delicacy, its brillance, and the lovely green-and-white combination that are a sure sign of spring.

Such a happy little shrub. Bridal wreath is my favorite today.
