Happy Mother's Day !

Happy Mother's Day to everyone!
My eighty-{{cough}} year old mother still hasn't stopped surprising me.  So far this year, she has got engaged and now recently has joined 'Facebook'.  She'll soon have more friends than me on facebook!  lol.
Well, I say.. you go girl !  I hope I'm as active as you are when I reach eighty-{{cough}} !
Here's to you Mom...  HAPPY MOTHERS DAY!

My darling Daughter, my BFF, is taking me out to brunch today.  I enjoy every moment I can spend with her and I'm looking forward to spending today with her.

Laura over at Bright, Bold and Beautiful listed one of my Etsy pieces on her blog, so I stopped over and found Laura's artwork is absolutely stunning!  Stop by and take a look - her watercolors will make a wonderful gift for everyone.

Here's some fun Sunday morning blog-hopping.

Another look at Spring

Spring may not be over for another month and a half but the plants are changing fast getting ready for the hot summer weather.  Mother Nature has been doing a good job cleaning up the pretty blossoms from the trees.
Here are my 2 final pictures from last weekends walk around my neighborhood.

Rain and wind followed by sun and warmer days have pushed the blossom petals away and made room for tiny green leaves that are quickly growing into larger ones we'll use for shade.












  I'll walk the same route this weekend and it will look very different.  Everything is much greener.  I'll miss the vivid Spring colors, there are some flowers left but not as many and peek Spring.
Now I can't wait for the bright Summer flowers to show up.
