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.
