Friday Flowers. Dahlia Bouquet & the Story of the Dahlia

Hello and a good Friday to you!  How was your week? Are you looking forward to the weekend? We sure are. It’ s going to be a low key weekend for us, but that’s just fine.

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.

Happy Mother’s Day!

Happy Mother’s Day!
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 🌿🌱☘️💐.
