Mother's Day Blessings

Usually I have my plant containers potted by now, but all the rain and yuckiness of the last few weeks has really slowed me down. After hitting all the garage sales in my immediate neighborhoods, I did manage to get to the corner nursery to find a few flowers to get started with.

Do you have "corner nurseries" where you are?
Around here, larger nurseries set up "satellite" sites around town
 to make it easier and more tempting
to spend money on whatever the current blooms might be.

I don't buy them all at once,
 I have to spread it out to decide what and how I want to use them.
Not to mention that flower prices seem to have skyrocketed...eeeck!!

So they are usually my "Mother's Day Present" to myself.

Here are a few blooms waiting to go into containers for the back deck,
in one of my galvanized metal carriers.

Then to wish you a happy Mother's Day,
a framed Mother's Blessing print from 1939.

(You know I love my English Cottages!)

After storms last night and this morning we're expected to have a lovely weekend.
The guys are opening the pool today,
so it's a work day for me too, cleaning and arranging outside furniture.

Have a wonderful family weekend,

I'm linking to these metal parties this weekend:

And if you haven't entered my May Give Away

love to you all,
