Tomorrow will be Mother's Day and I will have all my (not so) little chicks home to roost for the day... truly a blessing. We will spend a glorious day together savoring each other's company and the expected sunshine along with a delicious meal of grilled steak (a rare treat indeed), potato salad, corn and something decadent for dessert.
I always ask for bedding plants for Mother's Day as I just love the cottage charm of pots and planters spilling over with beautiful blooms. I decided upon snapdragons this year along with some vinca and potato vine to fill in my pots...so old-fashioned and sweet. I also will have a few geraniums in a very pretty pink that will look nice with our new paint color (which as of this moment is still not finished, I am sad to report).
I truly love to be here on our old homestead with the ones that I love, tying hearstrings and making cherished memories..... it is the best present in the world.
Yours so kindredly,
P.S. I know that for so many of you this is such a bittersweet day...you are in my prayers.
