Happy Mother's Day!

Here are some Western Massachusetts flowers for Western Massachusetts Moms...and Mothers everywhere!

Have a great day!

That was very moving. Thank you. I hope my children believe these things to be true of me.

They are certainly true of my own darling Mums.

Thank you for sharing. Your photography is lovely.
