Weekly Photo Challenge: Reflecting Pink

Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers out there!

An earlier Mother’s Day.

I was sometimes called a “girly-girl” which I don’t get except I was very slight of frame and quiet.  I didn’t wear ruffles or pink but preferred a book to sports, kittens to dogs and giggling to gossip.

I grew to love pink, ruffles and lace as I got older and I don’t mean as an old lady, but even into my 30’s I grew fond of the romantic look in clothing and decor.

An outdoor picnic. I made my dress and my son’s outfit.


Reflections are all around us daily but I’m reflecting internally about the time in my life when I actually “mothered.”  I am still a mother but am no longer allowed to act like one.  That sucks.

I love Sean’s expression at 3 months.

My son David used to play a little too rough, age 3. At age 10 he broke a foot right before school started.

Reflections of home.


Reflections in nature.

Daily Prompt: A Jolt of Spring at Hidden Lake Gardens

When I saw “Jolt” I immediately thought of the Jolt cola that supposedly they are still making.

Hidden Lake Gardens has become a big dog walking place lately.  Cool as long as you clean up so they don’t ban this practice for everyone.

God Bless Everyone This Easter Season

It was such a beautiful morning out here I decided to make a photo shoot out of my little stroll on the grounds.

Daily Prompt: Purple

One of my favorite colors!  Heard purple was a royal color and loved pairing it with yellow or gold in my clothing years ago.  Nature wears it well too!


Purple also reminds me of Prince and his movie “Purple Rain!”

Daily Prompt: Expectations

No more Valentine expectations!

That’s how it is when you are completely single for valentine.  Click here if you are having a problem dealing with this fact.

Please enjoy a few older shots.  I was going to find and scan a picture from years ago of one of my Valentine’s Day hauls but my apartment is too disheveled at this time to look.  Early spring cleaning.  It’s in the 40’s this week and expected to actually hit the upper 50’s in a few days around here.

 

Now I am a mere ghost to Valentine's Days of the past!

Can't find my favorite teacup since I moved.

Daily Prompt: Miniature’s are Fun

I would love to do one of those fairy gardens.  I used to put tiny fairies and elves in my terrariums but of course I don’t know where those shots are when I need them.  Maybe another day.

Found this at Heritage Park in Taylor Michigan of all places.
