happy mothers day ...

I hope the sun comes out later on, we are making a trip up to the crematorium this morning. Not being one for flowers in plastic cellophane, yesterday I made up this lovely green pot of viola 'blue' for mum. I am pleased there was one plant left, which is now in the purple pot and sits on my kitchen windowsill, it really does look pretty, and when I am doing the dishes, I shall think of mum, who herself spent years slaving over her kitchen sink!

Happy Mothers Day to all the mums out there, today is for you, and I hope one and all are being well and truly pampered.

Mothers Day Update ... well the sun did come out and it was beautiful up on the West Sussex downs, the crematorium is set in the most beautiful setting, which gives me comfort that mum is in a nice place. The pot of viola looked really nice placed amongst the miniature daffodils which have emerged around her plot.

Hello there early bird! :o)
Well I hope the sunshine comes out too. It is sunny here already but boy! that wind has not eased any! :o)
My man is at work and my kids are still snoozing so I'm sort of knocking about a part empty house on my own which is peaceful! :o)

Those flowers are very pretty Louise. I hope you had a good day, it was so sunny wasn't it . I spent some time in my loft looking at old photos of my mum, not as maudlin as it sounds, it was nice to have some of those memories again
