“The little boy nodded at the peony and the peony seemed to nod back. The little boy was neat, clean and pretty. The peony was unchaste, dishevelled as peonies must be, and at the height of its beauty.(…) Every hour is filled with such moments, big with significance for someone.”

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
