Pink Saturday..

Mother's Day edition..

What a delightful day today has been..

slept in despite the fact knowing 'things' needed to be done..
perhaps this extra bit of time lying in the bed was what I needed..
with furbabies sleeping soundly..
I tiptoed out to the kitchen and turned on the coffee..
as I turned to bring in the newspaper..
greeting me were 3 sets of eyes..
complete with morning hello meeoows....
meaning feed me.. NOW!
after tending their needs of food, fresh water,

and a clean poopie parlor..
I settled in with my first cup of the day..

If anything other than the Peony was blooming..
grabbed the Nikon on my way out to the back yard..
still in jammies and house slippers..
Oh my goodness GOSH!..
Roses were open where just last evening were buds..
pretty pinks..
and yellows..
and more Columbines..
a few lingering late blooming Tulips here and there.
(yes.. I did tiptoe through the Tulips.smiling at the thought!)
yes.. taking those few stolen moments of pure bliss..
was my gift to ME for this beautifully delightful day..called the Present!!
Just wish my Mom was still around to share these!
guess she and Ernestine (my Mother in Law)..

are celebrating together up in Heaven...they each so loved beautiful flowers..
I love and miss you both! ♥ ♥
Thanks Mom..guess it was from you that I inherited the green thumb!
Hope you've all enjoyed your Present also!
Here's wishing all the Moms and  Mothers, past and present
the happiest of Mother's Days..filled to the brim and overflowing with love and joy from beginning to end! ENJOY!

welcome to my world of salty sunkissed breezes..
where time is not measured..
linger leisurely..
sift sugary white sand between your toes..
Make and take those wonderful memories..
leaving behind..only your footprints...
