My Mother Day's Bouquet

This is the bouquet of flowers Cat Daddy gave me for Mother's Day straight from my own garden. This is what you can get if, after sprouting you give them plenty of warmth, sing to them, talk to them, listen, give them room to grow and spread a whole lot of fertilizer over the years!
I know y'all had your own bouquets, maybe larger than mine, maybe smaller, maybe even from another yard....but they just don't come any prettier than these two melon heads!
I hope everyone had a wonderful Sunday!

Beautiful young buds you have there! Not a weed amongst them! I think I see a wildflower in the middle though...the one in the white! You have a gorgeous bouquet and you can thank Cat Daddy for sewing his wild oats!

Beautiful pictures of a beautiful family. But you need to invest in a tripod so you can get Cat Daddy in there too. The one of you and Jenn is especially good. You going to frame it?

What a beautiful family! Thanks for sharing the photos. I know you had a wonderful mother's day. There's only one thing missing in that picture...Bella! Maybe by the 4th of July you'll have your little firecracker home! We need a photo of the 3 generations altogether! Have a great week!

As baseball players say, "Wait 'til next year!" when Bella's there!
