Mother’s Day 2014
Mother’s Day was a whirlwind of activity. My son and daughter came early and spent the entire day with us. I also had friends from the office join us for lunch and we visited the babies, picked asparagus, walked a lot and thoroughly enjoyed the day. The day started for me at 6:00 a.m. and everyone was gone by 5:30. Then, hubby Sassy and I enjoyed some quiet time.
Heather and Shawn bought me beautiful cards and a push mower for the yard which I’ve wanted for two years and was going to buy in June. It’s part of my new weightloss program.

Eddie made me a beautiful hanging flower table out of a old wagon wheel and bought flowers to go on it. He had to have the kids help him hang it in the yard while I was preparing lunch for our other guests. I absolutely love it and never thought for a minute he would re-purpose something like this. I may be rubbing off on him! 😉

Not only did he build the table for me but he loaded it with plants that I’ll repot as soon as the cold snap passes this weekend. He also went to the woods and brought me this beautiful bouquet of trillium. The blossoms are so delicate and elegant, don’t you think?

They adorned our kitchen table where I served our guest and my family their lunch. We’re going to try to transplant some to my shaded flower gardens later this week or next. Hopefully with all the shade they’ll think they’re in the woods and thrive. He also got me a beautiful card and all of my cards made me cry!! I am so loved.

To top the day, one of our gielbiev cows delivered a calf which was perfect for Mother’s Day.
I hope your Mother’s Day was as wonderful as mine.
