Mother's Day





Happy Mothers' Day to all mothers and caregivers everywhere. Here are pieces of my day from the neighborhood and a nearby botanical garden. The pink sweetheart roses remind me of my Italian grand "momo" who loved these little flowers. In summer, she would place a few of the tiny bud stems in a glass jar on the kitchen window sill. I think the yellow roses blooming in my neighbor's yard fell from heaven!

Hello Christine,
The yellow roses are delightful. Do you know how they are called ? They look like David Austin's English roses.
I thank you very much for stopping by my art blog and for your comments.
