Flowers for Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to all of you dear readers.  I have not been posting, as I have my German wanderlust shoes on and have been in Europe for several weeks.   I brought back some spring flowers for you!

It was raining that day--but after living in Portland, Or, for 30 years, we don't let rain stop us from hiking.

I really loved the Queen Anne's Lace planted with the tulips.  They were like little white clouds over the fields.

 I know it looks like a dream.  This was the Isle of Mainau in Lake Constance, Germany.  The tulips were fabulous!

I would like to honor my mother.  When she was in her 60's, she loved travelling to the Lake Constance area with her Aunt.  Wishing you a happy Mother's Day.


  1. I am having Wanderlust looking at these pretty pictures. No wonder your Mom liked to visit there... the tulips are so pretty!

  2. These photos are so gorgeous! Can't wait to hear more about your trip! I hope you had a lovely Mother's Day. xx Rié
