I picked these few sprigs of Lily of the Valley this morning and it brought back so many memories.  My mother always told us that she had carried them in her bridal bouquet and my Grandma Jenny had a big patch in the garden behind her house.  I loved to pick them and bury my nose in the sublime fragrance. I still love the aroma and wish I could find a perfume just like it.  So I'm remembering my Mother and my grandmothers on this Mother's Day.

This beautiful bouquet from my son was delivered this morning. Since he lives on the other side of the country we rarely get to spend Mother's Day together, but I have fond memories of all the Mother's Days we did spend together and all the wonderful days between.

To all the mothers, stepmothers, and grandmothers out there I wish you all a Happy Mother's Day!

I love lily of the valley too -- many years ago I had perfume that was just like them. Haven't seen any in the flesh in many years -- maybe we're too far south. Have a great day!
