I wish that I could say these came from my yard, but they didn’t. The top ones are from my mom’s, the bottom from my sister’s. Gorgeous bits of spring. Which makes sending these virtual flowers as a birthday wish to my mother a little lame. But now that I can publish once again to this blog, and judging by the way the rest of this day has gone so far, she’ll be reading these birthday wishes before we actually get around to phoning them in. Happy Birthday Mom! Enjoy your own flowers!
