The Last Card

Happy Mother's Day to all the Mom's out there!  
Whether you're a Mom, Stepmom, Surrogate Mom or Pet Mom ....  
I wish you the happiest day ever!

My own dear Mother has been gone for over 20 years now, this is the last card that I gave to her. It's a lovely three dimensional card by Hallmark. As is with most of their cards the artist is not credited. It is a very pretty watercolor of wild roses, daisies and forget-me-nots and some other assorted flora. The little bluebirds add a bit more whimsey to this pretty card.

The sentiment on the card is an old one but still holds true...

"God could not be everywhere and therefore He made Mothers."

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! 
See you soon!

Dancing Round the Maypole

I'm so happy that May has arrived. I'm as happy as these little critters dancing around the Maypole!

In early April I had sent out a tweet pic (of snow and sleet) with the message that 'April was the cruelest month.'  It turned out to be a crueler month than I could have imagined. We had been teased by the warmer temperatures in March and then April arrived, pelted us with sleet and hail and then rained purple tears all over us. I'm glad April is behind us.

Welcome May! Sun-kissed and sweet, May is the true beginning of spring up north. The flowers start to bloom in earnest and the green things leap out of the ground!

 Plum Blossoms 

 Purple Violets

What a pity flowers can utter no sound! 
A singing rose, a whispering violet, a murmuring honeysuckle, 
Oh, what a rare and exquisite miracle would these be!

After raining on us for nearly a week the sun finally came out.

I'm wishing for all of you fine weather 
and lovely new memories in the month of May.
