    It was my birthday and started out with a beautiful card from Mike ( he had already got me the liner, pump and filter and is going to dig me a pond). Then we met with friends for coffee and I was treated to hugs, cards, and 2 new gnomes! One is holding a mug of beer and a sign that says 'Beer Garden'. That makes 4 drinking gnomes that I have so they will surely liven up my yard. The other gnome has his pants down, bent over and a motion sensor so anytime someone goes by he makes the sound like he is passing gas! I think he will fit right in with the drinkers. Then Mike took me shopping in the 'big town' and I bought some plants for my shade pots and he treated me to lunch at a nice seafood restaurant. When we got back to our town we stopped at the local pub and I had a birthday drink and another friend met us and gave me a heavy duty rake but the rake part is only 8 inches wide and it has an extendable handle. Perfect for raking between perennials plus a beautiful floral glass bird bath and stand and a terra cotta bunny. Our DD fixed us a really nice meal the night before as she had to work the next day and my gift from her is a beautiful glass and copper bird feeder. I don't think this birthday can be topped! I feel very blessed with family and good friends.

    Certainly sounds like a superior day for your birthday. You need to add your b'day to the GardenStew calender so we will know about it ahead of time next year.

    I didn't realise it was your birthday yesterday 2ofus. Do please mark it on our calendar as we don't want to miss it again.

    Happy belated birthday! It sounds as if you had a very good day with friends, loved ones, and a few beverages.
    Glad you are on the Stew, and hope to be wishing you a not-belated birthday next year.

    Thank you, Jerry. I looked for a place on my profile but couldn't find anything.
