Today, we celebrated Mother’s Day. There are no words that can begin to express the amount of love and nurturing a mother will shower over her children. I couldn’t grasp this concept until I became a mother myself. My mom–also known as Super Mom–spent ALL her time, and any of her spare time, making sure I had the love and support I needed, and then some. I’ve tried to emulate her, but I am no doubt missing the mark. I’m still learning!
Today, my kids took some extra steps to make sure I had a great day today. We celebrated the day with quite a few laughs–my favorite thing to do. And, predictably, we were in the kitchen baking! While strawberries are lining the shelves at the supermarket, I have to admit that mint brownies are my favorite no matter what the season, so by golly, that is what we baked . . . and ate. Regrettably, there are no photos of this indulgence to share. Instead, to mark this special day, I have some photos of pretty spots in the garden. What would Mother’s Day be without flowers?!
Because I’m beat from all of the day’s festivities, my mind has drawn a blank on the names of all of these flowers in the garden.
Though I know these flowers below are violets. OK, so they are sort of like weeds, er, wild flowers. They still count in my book!
Here’s another wild plant growing in the garden (well, the yard). It’s one of my favorites: MOSS!
I’ll end with a buddy of ours who made a cameo appearance.
Here’s to you, Mom. Happy Mother’s Day 2018!
