Grands: Savannah

Last night I braved the mosquitoes that are nearly as large as birds to check out the daylilies.   YES, there were two buds.  The daylilies out the kitchen window always signal the birthday of our oldest Granddaughter.  The year she was born I waited half the summer for my daylilies in North Dakota to bloom, and they did bloom the day she was born.  They are a strain of very old daylilies..some are red and some are orange, but as this year proves again..they must be celebrating Savannah's birthday!  It is uncanny how reliable they are, if I ever lost my calendar I could make an new one starting with today.
This mornings bloom! 

We sang Happy Birthday to Savannah on Friday. She said "I didn't think anyone was going to remember."  I made her a photo card from this photo that I took of her on July 01, 2010.
 I took another photo on Friday, she is growing up way too fast.  She is very responsible and takes charge of her sisters and the house for the summer.  She is a bright spot in our lives!  She was born fourteen years ago today.  Happy Birthday Savannah!  :)

  6. Savannah is a very pretty girl. She sounds like a joy. Our oldest grandson turns 14 in a few weeks. He spends a lot of time with us - he is a total joy to have around. I hear the horror stories of teens and even witness some and count my blessings for my own wonderful grandkids.

  8. What a doll! Savannah is a lovely young lady. Happy Birthday to her.
    I remember that same old daylily variety growing at my grandmother's place and at ours. When I was Savannah's age I abhorred them, because they were in my way when I mowed the lawn. Today I would love to have some of them growing in my garden. Funny how a few flowers can trigger a flood of memories. I love their bright orange color.

  9. Savannah is an adorable young lady, and what a lucky one to have the daylillies come on her birthday! I've loved them since I was a child; they grew all along our road at the bottom of the driveway. Where I am, the last of ours went away about 3 weeks ago! I love how the seasons sort of flow over the country through time. By the way, my son's birthday always comes exactly when the lilacs open around here, where he was born. I can't think of them without remembering the huge bouquet my best friend's mother brought me when I got home from the hospital with him. Sweet memories!
