As some of you may recall couple of weeks ago for Mother’s Day I did a post on an idea for a Mother’s Day flower exchange where my friends and I exchanged flower bouquets made from our own gardens.

Good Monday to you all. I hope you had a quiet weekend and are ready for the week ahead. Our weekend was low-key, not much excitement to report, which is a good thing. We did a lot of gardening, planting little veggie seedlings, and went for long walks in our neighborhood, and that’s pretty much it. Continue reading Veggie Planting on our Hill. May 2020

Wishing all the wonderful Moms a wonderful day filled with love and relaxation 💕❤️🧡💛💐 !
Today, on this very special day honoring Moms, I would like to share this poem I discovered titled “To be in my Mother’s garden again.” This poem spoke to me immediately as my Mom was an avid gardener and a botanist who grew all kinds of flowers, vegetables and herbs in her tiny garden patch, and enjoyed all things nature 🌿🌱☘️💐.

Please allow me to share a memory from yesteryear… a Spring Tea with my friends from last year.
