the squirrels and the rain and the lack of sun have been messing with my poppies. the squirrels romp around the flowers and leap up and lop off a flower from the stem leaving it to rot in the rain. I rescued a few today and was able to watch the poppy open in my hand in a matter of seconds ...

Thank YOU for all that you did for me
and even for the strength you give me to this day!
Your Mother is always with you....
She's the whisper of the leaves as you walk down the street;
she's the smell of bleach in your freshly laundered sheets;
she's the cool hand on your brow when you're not well.
Your Mother lives inside your laughter.
And she's crystallized in every tear drop.
She's the place you came from, your first home;
and she's the map you follow with every step you take.
She's your first love and your first heartbreak,
and nothing on earth can separate you.
Not time, not space... not even death!
Little Grammy (my Mom's Mom) and Me
Happy Mother's Day to EVERY WOMAN
who has ever hugged a baby,
kissed a boo-boo,
taught a lesson, listened closely, cared deeply
… and passed on her love and wisdom
to someone in the world who needed her!
