Flowers with Love


Just a quick post today featuring some of the flowers I received for Mother's Day. The white lilacs were not a gift, but are from our son and daughter-in-law's garden where we enjoyed a great brunch cooked by the men in the family and a sunny afternoon outside. 

An azalea plant from my husband, orchids from my daughter and son-in-law, and red roses from my son and daughter-in-law. And a phone call from my daughter in Spain. What a perfect day, surrounded by love. I am so blessed.

Late afternoon Tim and I went for a walk on the beach - it truly felt like summer, with a few brave souls swimming and many families picnicking and enjoying the glorious weather. 

Linking to Mosaic Monday and hoping you all had a wonderful Sunday, whether you celebrated Mother's Day or not.

It looks like you had a perfect day! Glad the weather cooperated there, it was so rainy and windy over here!
Hugs, and thanks for always being so kind to me, Lorrie! Your support means a lot.

Your flowers are beautiful. I see that you have a head start on the garden with the new azalea bush. A walk there at the end of the afternoon looks like perfection.

Glad to hear that you had such a lovely day and that your daughter called from overseas. It sounds like your day was a delight from start to finish!

I think mothers everywhere celebrated in the same way yesterday...with flowers, and family and sunshine!

Beautiful flowers all but the lilacs are my favorite for their perfume. I'm imagining them right now because I can't grow them here in the south where it's too warm and humid. They thrived in my garden in England growing up - perhaps that's why they are so loved - memories again!
