But first a slight glance backward at the past 2 days of black and blue. (Don't worry, not that kind of black and blue.)
Tuesday evening we attended Sisi's 5th grade orchestra concert. She's there in the front row wearing a black suit and a blue bandana. And looking quite musically inclined, because she is!
Wednesday the little maestra turned 12. She asked for a pound cake with no frosting, and she wanted it to be blue. Of course. We compromised on a pound cake with blue swirls and part of it unfrosted. The breaking of the cake into 3 pieces was my idea. Ok, it was an accident for which I take full credit.
My other great idea was to invite 3 of her friends from school to walk home with her and have cake, but not to tell her they were going to do that. Somehow she didn't not figure out that they were actually coming to the house with her until they all got here, and even then she was surprised. Happy Birthday Sisi!
Today it's a purple haze in the backyard. Lilacs
Hint of purple on the rhubarb stalks
This little guy isn't purple, but he looked so cute I added him to the mix. (Not my creation, found on plant trellis at a garage sale!)
Now if we have some Purple Rain the garden will look great!
