Happy Mother's Day and BUNNIES!

First off let me wish all Mother's a wonderful day today!

Last week I'm out pulling the weeds in the garden getting it ready to plant.   I know Mom was laughing looking down from heaven. She used to laugh at me and call me Mrs. McGregor. We have the darnest time keeping the bunnies out of our garden. She would say she could just see me out there yelling at the bunnies to quit eating all my plants and to get out of my garden!! She'd laugh and say they probably think you are laying them out a wonderful smorgasbord of foods.

Sooooo, I was pulling the weeds and there were many let me tell you! Where did they all come from?  I know I didn't leave this many weeds in the garden this past fall.   I start pulling this big weed....then the ground started MOVING! Out popped part of the weed along with some bunny fur....dang...we have a den of baby bunnies INSIDE our garden fence. All the weeds were pulled except the one patch with the baby bunny den.

This morning I head out to get my newspaper and check out the den to see if it looks disturbed or whatnot.  One of the bunnies must have popped the top off their den.   I lost count how many there were.  Now for them to hurry up and grow and leave so we can plant the garden. :)

Aren't they just adorable? :)

Mom's Beautiful Peonies

My Mom passed away two years tomorrow.  It seems like only yesterday and it seems like forever since I've talked and laughed with her on the phone (we lived in different states).   This year her date of passing falls one day before Mother's Day.  I've been going through my stash of old pictures of her and her home we sold after she passed.  I have always loved her peonies that lined her driveway.  Below are photos of her peonies.  They were taken within a week or so after her passing.  They were absolutely beautiful that year.  I'm sure she was looking down and smiling at her beautiful flowers.  I've since started a row  of peonies beside my driveway.  This year it looks like I may get a few blooms.  
I have no idea of the varieties of the peonies.  There are several different types.  I had asked Mom previously the varieties of the peonies she had...she no longer remembered their names.

I hope you enjoy the photos and have a wonderful Mother's Day this Sunday. 


Love and miss you Mom.....

Your Mother is Always With You – Anonymous
Your mother is always with you...
She's the whisper of the leaves
as you walk down the street.
She's the smell of bleach in
your freshly laundered socks.
She's the cool hand on your
brow when you're not well.
Your mother lives inside
your laughter. She's crystallized
in every tear drop...
She's the place you came from,
your first home.. She's the map you
follow with every step that you take.
She's your first love and your first heart
break....and nothing on earth can separate you.
Not time, Not space...
Not even death....
will ever separate you
from your mother....
You carry her inside of you....
