A Stroll in the Garden

I was chatting with my Mom today, and she pointed out that I have been neglecting my blog.

I know.

I have been working and weeding.  And I hope to have 2 finished quilts soon.

But this afternoon, I grabbed my camera.

So Mom…this post is for you.

I love you!

“A mother’s love is everything. It is what brings a child into this world. It is what molds their entire being. When a mother sees her child in danger, she is literally capable of anything. Mothers have lifted cars off of their children and destroyed entire dynasties. A mother’s love is the strongest energy known to man.” —Jamie McGuire

    • Thank you, Margaret. I am not getting the hang of the macro lens, so I have set it aside for now. I definitely need practice! I am also going to seek some help. Google is my friend. 🙂
