Happy Mothers Day!

Enjoying my coffee right now while kids and hubby are "slaving" away in the kitchen...and not so quietly, haha...preparing my Mother's Day breakfast...a tradition I really LOVE!!!

A parade of pink dedicated to all you wonderful moms...enjoy!

Dogwoods are still looking great.

These tulips are still blooming well as they are in the north-facing garden. I love those peachy-pink ones.
And the big.....TA DA! The clematis montana vine in full bloom...yikes, she's taking over the star magnolia!

And last, but never least, lil' Bandit sends his love!
The weather is just about perfect today...sunny, but you know where I'll be..burning off the breakfast calories! Have a great one!


  1. Beautiful Pictures!
    My flowering trees did not bloom very well this year...We have had maybe too much rain, and strong winds here in Ohio. Hope you don't mind if I sit, and admire your
    "Happy Mothers Day"

  2. Lynn everything is so beautiful - that Clematis is huge. I don't think I've ever seen one that big. And Bandit looks so cute with all of the flower petals covering the ground.
    Happy Mother's Day to you!

  3. Hey, funny..hi Linda and Linda!! I've been out for two hours and it's hot! even with the breeze..doing some transplanting and finally cutting back my butterfly bush...way behind on that chore! Can you believe that clematis is from one plant? How am I going to trim the top?Thanks for visiting, hope you both are having a great day!

  4. Aww, I love to see your doggy sitting in the flower "snow"!

  5. Hi Lynn, I'm Xuan (s-w-a-n) from Vietnam. I've been silently looking at your blog (I blog, too)for some time but I couldn't hold my silence anymore looking at those gorgeous tulips! May I borrow this photo to show on my blog what a spring garden looks like? They're breath-taking.
    Thank you and happy Mother's Day to you.

  6. I love your dogwood and clematis. The clematis looks a lot like a Japanese anemone flower. Your Bandit looks so cute in all the pink petals. Happy Mother's Day!

  7. Lil' Bandit is co cute :-) I am begining to like him too. All your flowers are so beautiful. Hope you enjoyed your special Mother's Day breakfast and gardening yesterday. Have a great week!

  8. Thanks for all the beautiful blooms today, love the last photo with your sweet lil' Bandit sitting in the petals. :) Hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day.

  9. Thank you, Bangchik and Kakdah :)

    Ms.Robin, that pink snow is all blowing in the garage now and making quite a mess. The blossoms did not stay on the trees long this year with all the rain we had.

    Ha Xuan, it's nice to meet you and thanks for leaving a comment. Yes, you may use any photos. If you go into my archives, under Spring Garden, there's a post with much better tulip photos displayed from a public garden. I tried to access your blog but couldn't....? Contact me by email if you'd like.

  10. You're right, Catherine, the close up of the clematis does resemble a pink anemone. Hope you had a great Mother's Day with your girls, too!

    Thanks, Steph and Racquel..Bandit looks like a puppy again...I think I cut off about 3 lbs. of hair on! I've been a bad mommy regarding his weekly grooming..more like every 3 months! Thanks for visiting :)

  11. Your clematis is so big and gorgeous.Bandit looks so pretty or should I say handsome sitting among the blooms. Hope you had a wonderful and restful Mothers Day.

  12. sure am glad I had time to today to catch up with all my favorite blogs, cause it would have been a shame to have missed all this beauty.
    Simply gorgeous !
    hugs, Cherry

  13. Your garden look fabulous and your photos are amazing!

  14. What gorgeous photos Lynn! Sounds like you had a wonderful Mother's Day.

    Your clematis looks like it's about to take over the world - it's gorgeous. Bandit's adorable - is he a Maltese?

    Lawn Man and the kids handled brunch here, and I got to play in the garden all morning, and bring out most of the plants overwintering indoors.

  15. OMG! I've never seen such a star!!! I love that montana. You've used it so perfectly. It is splendid. And Happy Belated Mother's Day to you!

  16. Hi Lynn, a little late but Happy Mother's Day! Hope your breakfast was wonderful, as it was made with lots of love. Thanks for the pinks, a fave of mine, but that Clemmie is just magnificent! Bandit too. :-)
