Mother’s Day 2012

I spent Mother’s Day climbing through the rafters of our barn’s roof.  My husband and I were so intent on getting this project done we both forgot about the fact that it was a special day for celebration.  Late in the evening, after I had come down from the roof and showered, I opened my e-mail and read greetings from my mother and sister.  Fortunately, I live half way around the world from them so I was able to call and wish them a happy Mother’s Day too.

Although my we forgot this special day, it seemed like my garden remembered.  There are flowers everywhere!  Before I went up on the roof I gathered a bunch of peonies to put in a vase for my table.  I couldn’t resist snapping a few photos of my Mother’s Day flowers to share with you.
