"A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials, heavy and sudden, fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine, desert us when troubles thicken around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts."
One of the gifts I gave my mum for Mother's Day this year, was a garden filled with all of her favourite flowers - coneflowers, foxglove, peonies, pansies, snapdragons, delphiniums, columbine and cranberry ice dianthus. The weather was absolutely gorgeous yesterday, so it was the perfect opportunity for me to put on my "gardening clothes" and Crocs, and grab the flowers, soil and shovel to start diggin'!
Happy Mother's Day, Mum! You're the greatest and I love you!
