Baby Tears and Mother's Day

Greetings to all of my readers!  I hope your weekend and your Mother's Day was as wonderful as mine.  My kids took me out for dinner on Friday night and we had a wonderful time.  We chose Friday night, because if you've ever gone to a restaurant on Mother's day, you know what an unpleasant thing that can be with all the crowds.

Sunday was lovely as well.  I went to Welby Gardens on Saturday and picked up my bedding plants and we planted them on Sunday after church as a family.  I love gardening!  Getting my yard all prettied up in the spring is one of my greatest joys! I am a little worried though.  The news says we may get snow on Tuesday night and I pray it doesn't wreck my plants.  Especially the gorgeous Geranium I just planted in one of my pots (photos coming soon).  If the pot weren't impossible to lift, I might bring it inside.  Maybe I can just cover it.  We'll see.

I am really excited to share a photo of one of the things I bought at the nursery.  A houseplant that I've wanted for a long time and I never expected to see one so lovely and mature as this!  I also paid $25.00 for it, which I've never paid for a houseplant. 

I had to have it!  It is full and thick like this all the way around.  My daughter says it looks like someone's hair, so here's her contribution to this post.

I hope you're all enjoying your day.  I am on a bit of a break from making things for my Etsy shop.  It is spring and there's so much to do around the homestead.  But I will get to it soon.
