The babies are getting big!
The flowers are beautiful! Looking forward to reading about your wonderful birthday!!!
Happy, Happy, Happy Birthday dear blogger friend. I wish you a great day and a lovely weekend - you deserve all the flowers, gifts or whatever you get, you big hearted woman!
Happy Birthday, all the way from Norway :-)
Those flowers are truly lovely. What wonderful presentation! Long after the flowers are gone, you'll still have a keepsake. :)
What a wonderful view you have of those dear hawks. I'm so glad you keep updating us about them.
Oh WOW! I must say....Van OUTdid himself this year for me! I told him, "do a good job for Naomi" and he laughed and said he'd take care of us. This really IS outstanding, Naomi! I'll have to call him on Monday with mega thanks. His artistic ability overwhelms me! And I LOVE that old-fashioned box! How'd he know I love antique things....I'm so impressed with his creativity!
And you deserved all of it, so DO enjoy!
Best to you with much love,
OH PS>>>>Got carried away with the flowers....lol Love your little baby hawks!
Happy Belated Birthday!!!
Your friend from the Keys told me so many wonderful things about you.. I must read up...
I've never seen a flower arrangement like that before...in such a beautiful box. The flowers themselves are gorgeous, and then you get to keep the box for always. What a sweet gesture. I hope you had a wonderful birthday celebration!
Those flowers are really lovely, you are a lucky lady!
I'm glad you had a good birthday Naomi!! The flowers in that lovely box are all so beautiful! How sweet of her to send it to you! I went over to her blog and read what she said about you and it's all true, true, true!! That was a very sweet tribute to you and she wrote it so well. Can't wait to see the rest of your birthday pictures!
Love the baby hawks. My how they grow so fast!
I'm getting ready to go to NE!!!! :) :) :)
WOW! I can't decide whether I want to cry or just smile over those gorgeous flowers!!! Happiest Birthday, Naomi! Shall I type out as many !!!!!! as old you are, like candles? xo
I am really looking forward to all the photos, Naomi. I'm so glad you had a good birthday celebration.
That photo of the baby hawk taking flight is spectacular!! It's like it came from the pages of National Geographic.
I don't think I've ever seen a floral arrangement in a box. I've seen them in teapots, but not a decorative box. It is neat that after the flowers are gone you will be able to use that pretty box.
Those flowers AND the box are beautiful!! I'm glad you had a great birthday and I'm looking forward to reading about the infamous 'Ladies who Lunch'...
Oh wow Naomi! You were certainly at the right place at the right time for that Hawk photo!! Fabulous!!
Ohhh beautiful flowers! And beautiful box! The teaser already tells me you had a great day!!
Wow, Terri did great! What a nice gift and it is so lovely!!!
Wow, they don't look like babies anymore! :)
A belated Happy Birthday! I hope you had a wonderful time :)
"Penblwydd Hapus!" (Happy Birthday, in Welsh).
Beautiful beautiful flowers, I am still kicking myself that we didn't think to bring my flowers back to you when we checked out of the hotel.
Hindsight and all that jazz.
Those flowers and the box are really wonderful, Naomi! A lovely gift indeed. I am looking forward to see all celebration photos!
The hawk boys (or girls) looks adorable!
I'll remember you on a river, I'll remember you on a lake, I'll remember you on your birthday, if you save me a piece of cake.
Forgive me, I have fever and am trying to keep myself amused.
Still waiting for some birthday pictures.
Happy birthday from the other side of the globe to a most wonderful and creative person! (I like the birthday candles on your cake.)
The bouquet of flowers (nice pastels) tells me you had a simple but grand celebration with some wonderful friends! I look forward to reading...Many joyous returns Naomi.
What lovely flowers!
Hello Naomi . I have just found you through Terri's blog.You have such a very interesting blog and I shall be back soon. Oh and a belated "Happy Birthday" to you. HUGS to you !
What beautiful blooms! Arranging them in that lovely box is a wonderful idea and they look gorgeous! It sounds like you had a wonderful birthday which is wonderful. I am looking forward to reading all about it :)
I think most people seemed to get the date wrong of my birthday or forget this year (including one of my brothers and one of my sisters). But I still had a nice day.
I am glad the card I sent arrived in time and I do hope your gift arrives soon. It is just a fun little thing and I will explain what the things are inside if you can't work out what they are for as they are more than just decoration!
Thank you for your belated birthday wishes :) I can understand your 'good' exhaustion as I was suffering from it this weekend with my birthday and having come back from Edinburgh late the day before.
Your hawk pics are wonderful. I also like the way the low light is shining through the open wing. Beautiful :)
Naomi, I have just posted a long long story... you might be interested to read it! Make sure you have a comfy seat before you begin!!
Great pictures as usual! The hawks are coming on a treat! The flowers look lovely, my Mum was a good flower arranger.
I think the hawk photo may be the best one yet. You get better and better.
I think only a woman could send such a beautiful arrangement. I'm not grumbling - I've just had 15 red roses for one of our many anniversaries. Why 15 I don't really know.
It does take time to arrange photos and you do it so much better than I do. Looking forward to the lunch but don't rush.
Vurry purtiful, Ms. Lady. Vurrah.
lovely flowers for a lovely lady, I say. Flowers always brigthen up the day and bring a smile to my face. I smiled just looking at yours!
Hope all is well.
Thinking of using Van for my wedding. :) That is so pretty.
