Hello friends......welcome back!
As you all know, last Sunday was Mother's Day.
Mother Nature cooperated beautifully with sunny clear blue skies and soft white clouds.
The theme of blues seemed to be everywhere that day.
My favorite flower, Tall Bearded Iris', where standing tall and majestic in their royal blue uniforms. They smelled divine also.
Our Eastern Bluebird boxes were full of sweet bluebird babies with blue tinged feathers.
Momma Bluebird was watching me very intently as I snapped this photo.
Whenever I check on the babies, I always call up to the Mom on the telephone wire..
"Good job Mom!"
I think she understands I am not going to hurt her little family.
Another box on the property...all snuggled tight together.
Lots of love to be found.
I even found a little love in a Black Walnut seed that a squirrel had broken open.
Look how perfect
Yes symbols of love and so many shades of blue to be found.
As wonderful and beautiful as Mother Nature's blues are, I experienced a different blue on Mother's Day.
My sweet Mom is beginning to lose her memory and she is starting to forget many around her, including her own children. My sisters Maddy and Joanne (resident angels) have moved Mom out of her apartment and she will now be living in a nice apartment above Joanne's home.
Mom has vivid recollections of loved ones in her past, but often will not remember what she has been doing just hours before.
I am so afraid and sad to think of the day I will call her and she will say..
My heart will break a little when that day comes.
Love the ones in your life NOW....time is so fleeting.
So good blues...bad blues, I guess it is just life going on around us. We just need to take the time to notice and appreciate it all.
Until next time...be kind and stay creative.
