Mother’s Day & Scenes of My Flowers


CAROLYN’S DAILY POSTS: 2011

MOTHER’S DAY & SCENES OF MY FLOWERS

     Today was Mother’s Day. My new sister, Darlene, sent me an angel pin.

     I spoke with my elder sister Nancy Lee earlier this week. She was overjoyed that a pair of cardinals were hanging out near her back patio (she’s not allowed to have bird feeders or bird houses where she lives). She thought I had shared this story with Darlene because Darlene had sent her a pin too—of a cardinal! I assured Nancy Lee that I hadn’t told Darlene of her—our—love of cardinals.

     In the morning I ate breakfast at Eat & Park Restaurant with my daughter Sandy, her husband, and my granddaughter, and my husband. After returning home, I decided to hang my bird feeders and bird houses, and transplant seedlings I had started or purchased. It was a full afternoon, after which I took in the views of the plants on our property. I had shot them (with my camera) earlier in the week. Below are some of the pictures.

    I finished out the day visiting with a former neighbor on my patio, and talking with a good friend, Arlene. Neither had heard of my being contacted by Darlene, so it was fun sharing the story. then I finished an Uno game with Lois—and came out from way behind to win, to my utter amazement.
