OUR LITTLE WATER POND has one little Water Lily plant that is on its third summer now.  It winters even when the little pond freezes and brings forth a blossom or two now through the summer.  This is the first blossom this year captured by my hubby.  I just love the picture, it couldn't be more perfect!
Is this not beautiful?? 
And I took this one the day before.

The back yard was a flurry of birds this morning with Cardinals, Blue Jays, Warblers, Blue Birds and water fowl.  Canadian Geese were on the lake with their goslings and the only ones we have not seen today is the Mallard family.  But I am sure they will be coming to beg for a hand out!

Please Visit my Kerrie's Korner SC site for pictures of the birds and a baby Blue Jay who had a scary experience!!
MOTHER'S DAY was lovely!  Both my daughters and 2 of my Granddaughters were here to visit and it was just grand.  Here is a picture they took of us.

And here they are!

The boys were off to see Iron Man movie.  Except for Papa who was here with me of course.
I certainly hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day even if you are not a Mother.  Never forget the Mama's who do not have children near to celebrate and also the Mama's who are in nursing homes and never get a visit from a child.  There is always someone less fortunate than we are and we should reach out to these people.  Your visit may be the only tactile stimulation that they receive in a week's time or more.  Bless you for reaching out to others and you will be rewarded as God is sooooooo Good!

That is so pretty!

Glad you had a wonderful Mother's Day. Great pictures.

When I visited my Dad on Mother's Day all the ladies in the nursing home were wearing corsages. When I commented on how pretty their flowers were they all smiled.

Aww, Kerrie, you and your hubby look like you really love each other, what a sweet photo - and the girls too - they look so happy. I bet your husband felt like the rooster in the henhouse surrounded by all of his ladies :-)

I feel so sad now for the moms who are in nursing homes and get no visits and I didn't go see anyone. I should have! Instead I moped all by myself feeling sorry for myself because my daughter is 3,000 miles away and I should have visited someone in a nursing home. I really have to work on that. Thanks for the reminder.
Hope you and hubby are doing well. I always remember him in my prayers.

p.s. I meant to comment on your lovely water lily until my heart sunk when I read about the lonely moms in nursing homes.

We have tons of water lilies on Bank's Lake, but they are all white. Does yours smell good? Sometimes, when I stand at the edge of the water and a breeze blows a whiff of those waterlilies, the scent is intoxicating...just lovely! The magnolias are blooming now too and they smell great also. I can't wait for the gardenias. Thosse are one of my favs.
