At Home on Mother's Day

Yesterday was Mother's Day here in England

When I got up on Saturday morning this beautiful bouquet was delivered to me

sent by my daughter Janie Thank you Janie

Will be visiting her home again on Wednesday and will get to have Oliver out of nursery again

Can't wait!
Looking out into the garden

Photinia (Red Robin)

Forsythia in the kitchen

I can't say I bought myself this CD for Mother's day but I did buy it this week
Terry MacAlmon's latest live worship CD
I have several of Terry's and I love them

I just listened to some of the album they list on that link. Very soothing. Nice. That would be good and enjoyable to have on around the house during the day, and I am a silence sort of person.

Your garden is starting to make me really yearn for spring. We had rain here all night and so the snow is gone, except of course where it was plowed and piled high.

I have been to Janie's blog. She is talented like you. She is such a vibrant and pretty woman. What a blessing to live close enough that you can visit with her and, Oliver. Wednesday, sounds fun. The roses she sent are lovely. Love the colors. I did not realize yesterday was Mother's Day in, England. Belated, but...

Happy Mother's Day, Barbara!

Dear Barbara,

I went back and looked at many of your old posts last night, and I do just love your blog! Your new post this morning with flowers from your daughter, crocuses?, forsythia, etc. all gorgeous... Your daughter has fab taste, as when it concerns roses I am a "yellows, peaches, and pinks" person. Lovely!

Nice worship music; I find so much of the Integrity Worship music terrific. I have been enjoying listening to Travis Cottrell this morning. He is the worship leader for Beth Moore. When you "enter the site" the music just plays and plays. God is good! (Happy Mother's Day!)

Happy Mother's Day to you, Barbara!

Mother's Day in the US is in May (the second Sunday, I think).

Happy Mother's Day! Janie's flowers are gorgeous, what a lovely gift to you.

I checked out that music link; it sounds like a wonderful praise CD. I also looked at his bio, very interesting. I had not heard of him before.

Your garden is growing...and now I know what forsythia look like. I like their pretty yellow color.

Your bouquet of flowers is lovely! Janie is a good daugther to remember her mum with roses!

See how silly I am? I just assumed that Mother's Day was the same everywhere. ;>

Hope that you had a very pleasant day.

Happy (belated) mothers day!
The flowers from Janie are gorgeous, roses are my favorite.
Love the pics of the photinia and forsythia. Nothing is showing but snow where I live, so its nice to see someone has some new growth!

Adrienne said...

Gorgeous flowers. How special. Happy Mother's Day - a bit late. I love Terry MacAlmon's music. That's the only CD I don't have. I think I should get it soon. I often put them all into my player and fill my house with his praise music. What an uplift!

Oh, Happy Mother's Day! I hope you have a good visit with your daughter on Wednesday! Beautiful flowers! Love the forsythia, it is one of the first things that blooms here in south, after the daffodils which are holding strong still!
