In The Garden

"In The Garden"
was my Mom's favorite hymn.
I remember singing it with her,
 as a young girl, 
 as I stood beside her in church
  She would smile brightly.

So I've been doing a bit more
slow work
on this piece of silk.
Our recent walks in the Smokies in North Carolina
inspired me to add a few wildflowers
to my work.

Yesterday was my Mom's birthday,
and today is Mothers' Day here in the States.
The two always go hand-in-hand.

Today we will take a tour of the gardens
planted and lovingly tended by our CSA farm friends
David and Anita.
Then we will enjoy dinner
with our family.
It's a beautiful day here:
finally warming up AND the sun is shining!

Happy Day to YOU!
thanks for stopping by
PEACE to you!

Happy Mother's Day to you and Kristin! Love "In the Garden". A beautiful tribute. Sending you hugs and hopefully some heat, we are done with it! LOL!

Happy Mother's Day to you and Kristin - though maybe it's over now. I can't keep up. Ours was yesterday and we had a lovely day though recouperating a little from the previous day which turned into quite a celebration for several birthdays, John's, mine and Andy's.

Your 'In the Garden' is just lovely. The flowers are a delightful addition and the clours are great. xox
