Glowing White Garden

Last night after our lovely Mother’s Day dinner in the garden, our first this year, we played a little bit of soccer. I’m an absolutely wonderful player and I really think that the reason my team won was because of the way I screamed and covered my head every time the ball came toward me. I’m a little sore today because I played so hard and so well!

While we were out there I was struck by the amount of white in the garden. Usually by Mother’s Day the crabapple trees are blooming but this year we’re several weeks behind so I spent a good part of the day missing the beautiful shades of pink that I typically enjoy while I work outside on Mother’s Day. As it got a little darker last night the white started to glow and I was completely caught up in how special it was.

I tend to live in the light so this morning I went back out hoping to capture some of the glow.

IMG_5631I hope that you won your game too and had a great Mother’s Day!

Love, Michele




  1. Your garden looks to be a couple of weeks ahead of ours but it’s all a beautiful thing. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I love white in the garden! My favorite time to walk around the yard is at dusk and the white just glows. As far a soccer goes, I am VERY impressed with your skills!


    1. Thanks Brenda, fifty year old moms need to have good soccer skills, lol.
