Spring at my house!

Has FINALLY arrived!!!!

A few pics to share.......

Crab apple, one of my favorite flowering trees.
Jason pruned this 2 weeks ago, I like the flat umbrella top look rather than the rounded.

Tulips, my one and only color. Im not a big fan of tulips but these have a really pretty black purple color

My white bleeding heart. Up until last year I had a pink fern leaf plant, but we mulched too early and I lost it so I replaced it with this white one.

Jasons Japanese maple in the front garden

This weekend is Mother's Day. What are your plans?
It will be a nice day quiet day at home for us,
well not so much quiet with these 2.

This is my mom, Linda! About a year before her passing, she was sick in this picture and just underwent surgery in both of her arms to repair bone that the cancer ate through. Happy Mother's Day mom, I miss you!

Its always hard on this day when your mom is no longer with you.

Happy Mothers Day to all of you out here in blogland!!!!!

Your tree is beautiful & your black/purple tulips are wonderful. My mom is gone, too, and I miss her so much. May you have a special day with your family.

Hi Jenn,

My daughter is a Jen too - I know so many Linda's tha named their girls Jenn or Jennifer or Jen. must be a lucky combo.

I am sure your mom is looking down on you and smiling with pride at the great mom you are to your little ones.

Enjoy your quiet - or not so quiet Mother's Day!!

hugs, Linda
