Mother's Day and Blossoms

In honor of Mother's Day I scanned an old photo of my mom. It's a little faded because it's from 1942. My father took this at the Cherry Blossoms in Washington, DC.

Speaking of blossoms, I have some recent flower photos for you and also for Today's Flowers. The first one was taken a few weeks ago. It has a distinct shadow so I'm sharing it with Shadow Shot Sunday. It also qualifies for I Heart Macro, doesn't it?

The next two photos are from the gardens at the Belle Boyd House in Front Royal. I took them yesterday.

After we left Front Royal yesterday, we went to Iris Hill Farm near Middletown. I ordered a few irises to plant this summer. 

Have a good week!


  1. Such beautiful flowers! Love this time of year.

  2. Your mother looks so happy surrounded by those cherry blossoms (and who wouldn't be). A sweet tribute and I adore your current spring blooms too!!

  3. What a delightsome smile your mother had in this picture you've scanned so very well - it's not too easy - and how beautiful the flowers in your shots, dearest Linda, this season has a gift for us every day !

    Hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day, sweet friend, I wish you a most wonderful new week ahead, sending much love and blessings of Joy to you


  4. Your mom looks happy there among the blossoms. I enjoyed seeing all your flower photos too.

  5. Lovely photo of your Mom Linda, and your flowers are beautiful. Thank you for sharing with Today's Flowers, and have a great week :)

  6. Lovely collection of flowers! And nice photo of your mom.

  7. Gorgeous colours in these blooms, Linda!

  8. So nice to see a photo of your mom.
    The blooms are lovely.

    Hope your week is going well.

    All the best Jan
