My Last MOTHER'S DAY in Boise - 2009-05-10 19:31:29
<<< Previous - The Swirling, Stressful Breezes of Spring... | Next - From One Home and Yard to Another... >>>

Leading up to this Mother's Day today, we've been continuing to pack and work in the garden after having a LOT of rain over the past week or two...

We moved the cars out of the garage and have them parked in our and our neighbor's driveways so that we can use the garage space to pack and store packed boxes.







Beginning around Easter time our garden has been greening up, and is probably the prettiest I've ever seen it. I took this picture of an Easter bouquet I picked from my yard along with my Christmas present from Sharon...




As I walked in the garden after all of the rain I was reminded of the "forty shades of green" in Ireland...



The Sand Cherry bush



and flowering crabapple tree have never looked this good... Probably because Bill has really worked hard all of this past year pruning and cutting trees and branches in preparation for our move to Montana.



So not only did I take close up pictures, but I also have a beautiful bouquet of crabapple blossoms and pink tulips on the bookshelf.







I even have THREE wisteria blossoms coming out on the small bush in the back yard.





The picture of Sharon holding Morgan this winter as they picked out their Christmas/Birthday tree reminds me of one of my favorite pictures of my mother holding Jon in front of their flowering Wisteria tree when Jon was about the same age as Morgan was this winter.



The minute I saw it I recognised the expression of love on Sharon's face as being exactly like the expression on my mother's face as she held my son many years ago. The expression on the faces of our sons is also quite similar...

The pink dogwood tree in front of Woody's house is also spectacular this year.







I never would have thought of picking any of the pink dogwood blossoms before, but I have to admit that they make the most beautiful bouquet I could ever have imagined along with the "alley lilac" bloom from a neighbor's yard...



And so, after a Mother's Day Brunch taken from this article in our local paper and calls from Jon and Sharon, I'm feeling happy and contented along with my mother and my daughter...





Mothers all three...
