Today is the birthday of my beloved friend, Barby Doll. On her birthday, for the last 8 years, I have also always thought of another of my dearest friends, Tall Pretty Blonde. The reason for the connection is below: My North American Fringe Tree, which was a gift from TPB and is always in glorious bloom on Barby Doll's birthday.
So happy, happy day, dear Barby, and happy Arbor Day, Dear Blonde. I love you both with all my heart.
