In memory of my mom and my grandmother, and the joy that our two respective daughter in laws bring us as they mother their daughter’s (our granddaughters) with love and skill…here are some images that conjure up Mother’s Day memories, new and old.
Grandparenting is the best. You’ve heard the reasons why and it’s all true!
~Olivia, age 5~ ~Fae, age 1 1/2~
…a sweet guest room for granddaughters (not mine, but it’s sure pretty).
…hydrangea the size of small cars. My grandmother grew them and I’ve seen them in the south, but never mastered this size in my own yard.
…I believe this is a Charles Faudree image. I love the way he could successfully create beauty in a room with both feminine and masculine touches.
…my mom would have loved these hydrangea cupcakes. If you know someone that would enjoy these, visit HERE
…gardens always remind me of my mother, who loved to work in her garden and taught me the love that past time as well.
…picnics, what a beautiful way to spend a Mother’s Day. We simply don’t picnic enough anymore.
…roses are a standard for mom’s, aren’t they?
I wish you a Mother’s Day starting with breakfast in bed…
…and a long soak at the end of this special holiday.
Most of all the other beautiful things in life come by twos and threes by dozens and hundreds. Plenty of roses, stars, sunsets, rainbows, brothers, and sisters, aunts and cousins, but only one mother in the whole world.”
