Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there!
In lieu of a card, I strolled through my back yard this
 afternoon and took some macro shots for you!

  1. Went to the other sea today
    For mother's day at my bay
    Haircut place not open on Sunday
    So pulled a 2 in one at play
    Easy peasy as can be
    The cats were happy they didn't have to go with me

      to do that you were so kind. haha...

    3. I hope the hairball was ON the t.p.
      because that would make clean up a breeze.
      haha.

    2. Did you get that marble cake baked?

      Delete
    3. How much time do you have? HaHaHa. I didn't plan on making it from scratch, and went to Target to pick up a marble cake mix, Nada. Went to Food 4 Less...Nada...Said I'm not driving any farther to find a marble cake mix. I'll buy a white and a chocolate and make my own. When I got home with the two cake mixes, I had the brilliant idea to make jumbo cup cakes...a doz. white with chocolate frosting, and a doz chocolate with cookies and cream white frosting......There they have "marble".....If I know my grandkids....they won't be disappointed and cupcakes are a lot easier to eat.

      Delete
    4. lol...oh they sound delicious and I'm sure they will be gobbled up! I'd want a jumbo one...with coffee. yum.

    5. Sending one of each....right over. Pour me a cup with with cream and sugar.

    1. They are the little violas in the last picture. They can be solid blue, purple, yellow or any combination of those colors!

    2. Oh OK. What a great name. I wonder where it came from?

      We just call them violas.

      Delete
    3. I do, too! ha. I'm sure the jump up part refers to how they are wild and just pop up where every and all over. The johnny part, I have no idea!
