Mother’s Day Night

This pretty bouquet traveled from Pittsburgh to Ohio in the car. A friend brought it to my doorstep the other day. I’ve been thinking about her a lot this weekend.

Since I was going visiting family, I couldn’t leave the flowers in Pittsburgh. They were so colorful. 

Sunday afternoon, I put them on Laura’s front porch to photograph their beauty. 

I thought how much my mom would have enjoyed them.  

Grateful for those who have gone on before and all those here on earth with us now. 

Thanks M.A.

Winter’s Antidote

Winter’s antidote.

 

My sister said she’d gotten some pussy willows to hang the wooden rabbit ornaments on and I’d just written a reply to a comment from Stef, 

I can’t wait to post signs of Spring. 


Gift from a Friend 

Thanks J.  I’m home again. 

I received your parcel. Lovely!

I love the gift of the blue glass vase and the accompanying book of sketches, watercolors  and recipes from Provence. 

So cool that you met the author/ artist Mary Ann Miller, too. Travels with a Blue Vase  website shows her other books and it would be hard to chose between Paris or the third one of Britain and Ireland. Guess I’ll have to get them both. 

 
I look forward to putting fresh flowers in the blue vase and photographing them.

Are you going to take a trip with the sketchers? Or a class in a local cafe? 

Thanks again,

Ruth

Colorful “swords” 

At my friend’s home, supper Saturday night.  Cut from her garden. 

These summer flowers remind me of my Grandmother.

  
The beets and cucumbers in their respective dishes  were colorful, too. 


A Food Pusher

I’d never seen one before today.

A unique baby gift arrived in today’s mail from my dear friend J.

Food Pusher 2The flowers from last Saturday’s wedding with the blue blossoms, still look lovely.
