Green Day10♪ (My next neighbor had birthday roses)

  My next door neighbor had 73rd birthday and her warmhearted 
daughter-in-law sent her bunch of roses. 
  Wow, she said she had more than a hundred in the box. 
Yey, we had some share of them ♡♡♡



This is one of her pictures taken in her house (just some of the roses), 
I had permission from her to use it for my blog.


Happily we had some shares from her and I took some pictures after decorated in the vase.  Haha, I should have bought some cakes and have them enjoying these lovely roses. How sweet of her and her daughter-in-law♪♪♪








I might have written this little anecdote that the next door lady and I used to be the next door neighbors as well. We lived in the very small company house. Both of our families left there when I was a hight shcool girl buying our own houses. And my mother and she bumped each other one day later when I was 22 years old; she thought about me for the single man living alone who happened to live next door to her.  He bought a house a couple of years later after he lost her mother quite young as he thought owning a house might be a benefit to find a wife.  Well, she is our match maker and we married four months later after the arranged meeting p;) 

    Linking this post to Green Day hosted by Fiona at Raindrops and Daisies 
            (I hope this rose topic is appropriate for the green day)

Lovely roses you have shared my friend.

I hope that you are well, I am sorry that I haven't visited you this week but I have been so busy at home that I haven't had time to blog or comment.

It is cold here this evening so I have the central heating on
and am going to have a cup of tea to warm myself up!

Regards to you and your husband.

Dearest Miyako,

That is quite a story so this lady is much more than a neighbor to you. You owe each other to her...
No wonder that she shared some of the roses! Enjoy them; they're all lovely.
Happy weekend and love from the USA,
Mariette
