I look out and see a backyard covered in sparkly white crystals. Nearly all the annuals have given in to Jack Frost.
However, the snapdragons carry on.
Reminding me of the Bride's oldest friend.
They met when they were almost 3yrs old.
Have remained friends all these years.
Pledged to be in each others weddings.
That promise was kept in 2006, and now again in May 2011.
They are 4 in this photo.
Back to the snapdragons.
If I remember correctly, they are the favorite flower of this friend.
The phone call we got announcing her engagement also told about her fiancee giving her flowers with snapdragons in them, and " he didn't even know they are my favorite!"
I like the fact the snapdragons in the yard are sticking around, just like the friend in the heart.
