Mum's the Flower

Posted by Picasa

Just a moment to say Hello, as a house guest has just telephoned from the airport. There are flowers from the market to arrange, linens to smooth, orchid scented candles to burn, wine to chill, cheese to set out...aren't guests wonderful? They just fill a home with anticipation. I'm looking forward to conversations into the night and hearing about his latest invention. He's from the Netherlands and a colleague of Tall Husband's. I've met him just once and couldn't let him stay in a hotel this visit. This is Texas after all!


  1. Texas hospitality...there is nothing like it!
    How kind to invite him.
    Have a wonderful July 4th!!

  2. Have a wonderful weekend and enjoy being a hostess!
