(Favorite Flowers: Pansy & Lily-of-the Valley)

"I notice that it is only when my
mother is working in her flowers that
she is radiant, almost to the point of
being invisible ~ except as Creator:
hand and eye. She is involved in the
work her soul must have."
~ Alice Walker
"In Search of Our Mothers' Gardens"

Joey, An especially poignant day for so many of us...I do love the quote and the collage of beauties you've shown us. That is a lovely photo of your mother! It wasn't until my mother passed away that I was able to see her beauty! Happy Mother's Day dear friend~~gail

Happy mother's day, Joey. Your mother was beautiful, and the way you have surrounded her with the favorite flower is so sweet. Hope your day was radiant as well. :-)
