A Mother's Day Wish

I just wanted to drop in and wish all of you 

beautiful women out there a 

Happy Mother's Day today! 





I chose a lovely, white lilac I picked from a

neighboring tree down the ally to share with you

on this special day. 





If only I could share the scent of this magnificent bloom! 

Even though I am only "Mother" to 3 fur baby cats, and my own 

Mother has since passed, I am spending my day 

reading, crocheting and simply being around those I love. :-)




The weather this past week has keep me outdoors, away from my computer, 

gardening, enjoying the sunshine, 

and working on this crochet piece.  

I only have two more rounds to go!  I'm also hoping it will look better once

I get it blocked.  Stay tuned for the final showing! :-) 




Overcast skies and rain have returned, so maybe now, I can spend some 

time indoors, visiting blogs and baking cookies!

That's such a pretty crocheted piece, Becca. Loved your tulip photos. My sister left our great weather only to drive through a snowstorm on the way home from coffee with a friend. Go figure! She and Ted hated to leave.
