Flowers For My Mom
What I'm Listening To: Lead of Love (live version) by Caedmon's Call
Happy Mothers Day!
This is part one of my Mothers Day post for 2007. Why part one, you may ask? Here in the UK, today is Mum's Day (that is what I call it) and of course we will also be celebrating Mother's Day for the US in May. Let's face it, when you're a mom...you can observe the holiday twice and no one will say a thing! :) I can hardly let this day go by without telling my own mother how much I love her and miss her. I have written about her here. She is a wonderful woman who loves me well. It is hard to be so far from her.
Flowers are a lovely sentiment to give for Mother's Day. They are beautiful, fresh, fragrant, feminine and natural. These qualities are similiar to those that I would give to a mother...to my own mother in fact. While I wasn't going to be sending any flowers this year, I did take a walk to our local florist LILYMA, to check out their selection of flowers to photograph. The owner Charlotte, graciously allowed me to take my time and snap whatever I fancied. I don't have to tell you all, I was like a kid in a candy store. It was fun for me and I really appreciate her letting me hang out there for a bit. She is a quite gifted floral designer with a natural artistic eye. I loved to see all she was creating. Hopefully I can share more with you all about her and the shop another time.
As my eye wandered, these roses stood out. The beautiful hues of the pinks and greens just drew me in for a closer look. I also liked the leaves that had fallen on to the white diplay. As I got closer through my lens, I realized that they weren't the freshest to pick in the store. Regardless, they were still my favorite. I chose these for you mom! I love you.
I wanted to add my job tonight went GREAT! I had so much fun. The family was filled with funny and laid back people which made me feel right at home. Thanks to you all for all your thoughts and prayers. They are much appreciated!
