I’ve been away, and I’m sure it’s bothered me more than it’s bothered you. However, I do have some beautiful pictures to show you. My power has been out for two days, so I had (wanted) to drive two hours to my parent’s house. Our 4th of July party plans had to be cancelled anyway, so why not go home and let mom pamper me for a couple of days?
I must prepare you for the pictures you are about to see. THIS is what I grew up with, and THIS is the expectation I have for my flowers. Needless to say, I fail miserably. My mom knows what she’s doing with flowers, and I am just showing you a sampling of what she put in her containers this year. Every year it’s different, and every year it’s gorgeous.
Me: What in the world is that purple thing sticking up in that planter?
Mom: Huh…I don’t even know. I just stuck it in there, and it did great didn’t it?
Me: Of course.
What I love about my mom’s eye for all things beautiful is that everywhere you look, you find some little trinket or ceramic creature among the flowers. She inspired me to buy a little frog today. It will never look as cute as her’s, but it’s worth the try right?Well, I hope you enjoyed the tour. I think she enjoyed the photographic attention today, so make sure to say nice things for her! Who am I kidding, I know you will.
I’ll be back tomorrow–even if it is a holiday–to catch up for being gone. Happy 4th!
