We have a busy weekend here. Today’s the dance recital, which means lots of work and lots of fun! This is our ninth or tenth year of dancing, actually I should say this is “my daughter’s ninth or tenth year of dancing” but it doesn’t really work that way. As a dance mom, it’s my project too, and now my youngest child has joined in so we spend more time at dance then ever. I believe that dance is a wonderful way for my girls to develop skills in many areas. They love to dance and we love to cheer them on.
When I let Winnie out this morning I was greeted by this view. It was rainy and overcast but all I could see were the flowers.
Of course I was drawn right out there and I had to keep looking. Tomorrow will be garden day for me but I’ve been so busy with rehearsals and running people places that I haven’t been down to the garden in a couple of days. I’m always surprised by the changes when I’m absent for a little while.
The rhubarb is in flower already. Shallots are peeking out. My daughter decorated the fence for her birthday party. I think the lights are staying here, I love them! This perennial border is starting to come together this year. We need some more rain to fill up the pond so that the kids can use the canoe, and I need to make that fence with the dogwood twigs.
There’s always bleeding hearts and spirea for Mother’s Day, along with the flowering cherry in the background.
Dancing and flowers…what better gifts are there?
A perfect Mother’s Day weekend to me!
Happy Mother’s Day!
It is beautiful out there! Sounds like a wonderful Mother’s Day-have a happy one!
thanks Blaire! Happy Mother’s Day to you! xoxo
