t's my 10th Anniversary today, and the kids gave me these flowers :) You might think they are weeds, and to some, they are. To me, they are the first harbingers of spring- every year they are the first ones to bloom.
Since it is WAY too windy to sketch outside today, I immortalised their gift by drawing it into my journal INSIDE the house- with the window open ;)
Persian Speedwell (Veronica persica) and Purple/red Deadnettle (Lamium purpureum)

It has been a wonderful and fulfilling 10 years- and I am hoping for many more :)


  1. Very beautiful! Maybe spring is right around the corner...I'm ready to see the little flowers popping out of the ground...whether they're some I planted...or wild flowers!

  2. May this be your happiest anniversary yet! Congratulations on your tenth year together!

    Peace and Laughter,

  3. I'm always amazed what stays green beneath the snow : sort of a metaphor for marriage, don't you think?

  4. Very lovely. I read that 'A weed is a plant that has mastered every survival skill except how to grow in rows'. And they are often so beautiful.
    Happy Anniversary, and ten more and ten more and ten more. You sound very happy, that's so nice.

  5. Lovely! That's such a wonderful present they brought you, they're obviously thoughtful kids who listen to you and think - what a gift! Happy Anniversary. :-)

  6. Happy Anniversary!
    I have an award for you on my blog if you'd like to play. Don't feel you have to though :)

  7. Congratulaions on your 10th anniversary. A wonderful way to remember it, just lovely.

  8. Happy Anniversary! May you have many more years together!
