Thinking of Father’s present and in our memories. Each hold special parts of my heart. Love you my husband, and my Dad and my Grandpas and my Pa (great grandfather). As a mother, I understand how this day is special because of our children. So bless each child and father.

Cheer for Cherry blossoms…

Walking along Lake Michigan’s shores in Chicago Lincoln Park I was graced with the springtime explosion of these bright cheery blossoms. “Hope springs eternal”; but here spring brings forth eternal hope.

Tender admiration…

All images are closeups of a memorial bouquet for someone I knew too briefly.

Seeds of motherhood…

Mothers sometimes go unnoticed. Under appreciated too often. In addition, sometimes, mothers have the potential to bring forth life in others. Look at this image of literally, the fruit of a mothering tree.

For today, alone, I am ignoring that each plant is usually both male and female. I am using my myopic vision to see plants as the mothers they are, who bear new life fruits from their seeds with the help of other neighboring mother plants.
