Mother’s Day Sunny Day

Mother’s Day turned out to be one of the nicer days we have had in over a month.  It seems like all we get is rain, but the sun decided to shine.  We spent the day just being a family and the boys gave me cards and Swarovski crystals that they had picked out for mommy.  My sister-in-law got me hooked on collecting them years ago.  I got the cutest little duck and a teddy bear with a heart.  It was funny because both of them sort of picked out something fitting to their personality.

Later in the day, we went to the local nursery and bought a peach tree to plant, and two rose bushes.  I am hoping they do well so I can remember them as one of many special Mother’s Day activities.

I have just finished planting the last of my vegetable garden, so I am greatly looking forward to having some home grown foods.  We have spinach, lettuce, broccoli, cauliflower, peas, green beans, zucchini, onions, tomatoes, cucumbers, and fresh herbs growing.  Strawberry picking is right around the corner and I will be making jam and freezing berries.  This is the time of the year where I spend little time indoors, and most of my time in the garden, out with the boys, and jaunts to local you pick farms, farmer’s markets and enjoying all the fresh fruits in the local supermarkets.  I am a definite country girl by nature, although I could do without the bugs and garden snakes.

This is one of the best times of the year!
