Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day

Today's the day to remember our mother's --- or to appreciate the joy that our own children bring into our lives. I've enjoyed listening to my boys chatter all afternoon about interesting subjects. It brings such contentment to my heart to just hear the happiness in their voices as they converse together.

I took a break to walk around my yard for a few minutes. I couldn't resist the flowers in the garden. The first of my roses are in bloom for this season. I think they mix so nicely with snapdragons, geum, and buttercups. 

The roses are Jackson & Perkins. They are the Rio Samba and the Tahitian Sunset. Once clipped and combined in a vase, they are difficult to tell apart from one another.

Each flower has a face that is so expressive! They seem so cheerful and happy!

Here's wishing you a Mother's Day
That's filled with every pleasure,
And a future that's as happy
As the memories you treasure!


  1. No one around here even acknowledged that it was Mother's Day. Not until my 14 year old got online this afternoon and saw it on Yahoo. Glad to hear you are having a lovely day. Your flowers are beautiful. Best wishes, Tammy

  2. Beautiful beautiful flowers! I first thought it was a florist arrangement your loved ones got for you, it looked so perfect! Such talent you have, both in growing and in arranging flowers. Can I live next to you in heaven, and then when you fill up your own yard with lovelies you can just start filling up my yard as well?!

  3. Your flowers were quite spectacular! I just love when we can start picking bouquets from the garden.

  4. Such beautiful flowers. I hope that you were able to treat yourself to a nice cup of tea. Happy Mother's Day!

  5. What amazing roses! I can practically smell them through the computer!
