Mother's Day





This photo reminds me of my mom, of all the days when we'd work in the yard together. She'd plant gladioli bulbs or thin out the iris beds, and I'd plant nasturtium and marigold seeds. And listen to my mom talking about growing up, meeting my dad, and working in Philadelphia while she waited for him to return from WWII. So my plan for Sunday is to work out in the yard, pull some weeds, trim edging, and make a place for nasturium to grow...

Sounds like a perfect plan. :)

Wonderful memories. I'm sure you will be thinking of your mother as you plant those seeds and say a little prayer for her...and while you're at it, say one for yourself too...she'd like it that you did!! ♥
