Another Birthday!!!

Since Feb, I've been posting birthday celebrations and this is the last one for awhile!!!
It was Monica's 6th birthday yesterday, but we had our little family get together last Tues night.  (I know, I'm a little late posting this, but the birthday was yesterday) so I'm on time!!!!  We did her mother's birthday March 27th even tho it was April 3rd.  It just suited everyone for the March date.  Well, Monica just thought it was tooooo long to wait till her birthday and here it is...come and gone!!!!  Time sure does fly!!!!

 This is a pic with my mother.
 Took these pics this morning.  I planted this about 5" from the tree.  Look how it has spread!!!!  It is just covered with purple flowers.  Monica's feet stepping stones are to the right of it and one of them will be covered with it spreading!!!!!  And I moved them to the right last year and I can't move them anymore!!!!  I have things planted on the other side of the stones.

 I had the tag of what kind of plant it was, but it has blown away and I can't remember what they are.  If anyone knows, please let me know.
And this is a closeup of my Hawthorne tree.  Looks like it survived the snow and the two night of freezing cold temps!!!!!  The flowers aren't as nice as they should be for just opening.  They look like it does when it's done blooming!!!!!  BUT, I have a tree and I have blooms!!!!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!!!
