Today is Anne's birthday. She wanted fireworks! No, not really, but she did want to be part of Ruby Tuesday which is hosted by mary/the teach

She claims that on every birthday that she can remember, the poppies have been blooming. I tried to make that happen this year but my magical powers are limited. This has been such a cool spring that everything is at least a week behind. So, I've had to grab a photo from another year.

And, her other memory is strawberry shortcake. So, I dusted off the old Nova Scotia cookbook and made a traditional strawberry shortcake. Mmm...it was good. We cheated a bit and had the birthday party last night. But today's the day...Happy Birthday, Anne!

Now that strawberry shortcake looks yummy. It is strawberry season here... but it has rained a lot in the last week. I hope they were able to save some. Usually the local fields last until mid june. Keeping our fingers crossed.

Those strawberries are calling out to me! They look so incrediably yummy. :-)

Poppies are some of my favorite flowers. Both are so good for Ruby Tuesday.

Thank you for stopping by my Ruby Tuesday post. Have a great week!

Happy Birthday Anne. Many happy returns to you.

I love when other people don't have birthday cakes either-not traditional ones anyways. This is the perfect way to celebrate. I love strawberry shortcake!
