Happy Flowers, Happy Mother's Day













Spring flowers are just the best, aren't they?  They make me so happy!  Those daffodils I planted last fall are so worth it now to see in full bloom.  The fragrance is heavenly!

The tulips are bright and cheery as well and I love the splashes of color that are everywhere I look now.  I feel like my eyes are drinking in this amazing play that nature puts on for us every spring and it does wonders to the mood to look outside and see so much green after so many months of brown, gray and white.

I love seeing our lawn sprinkled with bright yellow dandelions and I savor them and beg my husband to refrain from mowing the lawn until he can no longer stand it (even though I know they will grow back.) :)

We've had the most amazing summery weather these past 2 weeks.  Brilliant and warm and balmy.
Lots of coffee and crochet has been enjoyed on the porch this month.

Pumpkin Pie loves going to the mud puddles and checking on her frog friend "Addison". :)
Little Button and I have been having a great time walking about in the hour we have together before I go to work and she goes to the babysitter.

My town is a little higher in elevation than the rest of our area, so we are still waiting on the flowering trees and lilacs, but buds are formed and they are definitely coming.

I hope you are all enjoying beautiful weather where ever you are and Happy Mother's Day!
