A Happy Mother’s Day


All of the mothers in WP Land



Mothers everywhere

A special thank you to my wonderful children

Who take care of me

Who understand me

Who accept me the way I am

And love me anyway

  1. I’m just seeing this now – it is brilliant – the photos are quite beautiful, the sentiment lovely, but then you get to the notion of your children accepting you, and the orchid with the fly on it – just perfect! πŸ™‚


  2. I hope you had a wonderful Mother’s Day, George. The orchid is beautiful, and I especially love the first and last photographs.


    • Thank you, Elisa. Yes, I had a good day. The bug on the last photo is a “Love Bug”. Chuckle… That is NOT what Deano called them, however… Are your kids coming home for the summer?


    • Ah, Thank you, Joseph! By Mother’s Day, surely the sun was shining and the breezes warm in your frozen part of the planet! I fret about that damn weather up there. Chuckle… I think about the lawn furniture that you had to leave outside… Was that this year or last. I don’t recall, but I do recall the photos of huge stacks of snow on the arms of the chairs! πŸ™‚ I really do appreciate Liz being so helpful about care for Lucy. She’s growing! She really is! I’m just delighted with that little girl. Must be the Mad Cow. I never thought I’d like a reptile of any kind. I ordered a habitat for her to get her out of that terrarium tank. Now, I worry about such stuff as gut-loading the roaches! YEP, I keep the baby roaches too. A guy in San Antonio sends them to me. I don’t breed roaches, yet… If I start raising roaches in my house, on purpose, somebody needs to intervene! As always, you’re so nice about my photos. Thanks again!


  3. So soft and beautiful!! Thank you George….and rather belated mothers day wishes to you too πŸ™‚


    • Well, Madhu, I skipped right over you when I was answering the comments. Shame on me. I love seeing you here when you visit. I’m always amazed that such a sophisticated world traveler would stop by an old woman’s hermit house in Backwoods, Texas. The idea makes me smile every time I see you. There is something about you that says “universal spirit” to me. I will never forget how astounded I was when I saw the table that you designed! And read the homeplace story. I hope you had a wonderful Mother’s Day too. Thank you for visiting me! πŸ™‚


  4. George, I like all of these pictures >>> but my out and out favourite has to be the top one – that image is absolutely beautiful, absolutely artistic, and right up there with your nest! Adrian


  5. Thanks for the Mother’s Day wish & the beautiful flowers πŸ™‚
    Happy Mother’s Day to you every day!


    • Bless you, RoSy. I wonder if “we” had a Mother’s Day feast with your family on Sunday! I’m coming over to see what I missed. Chuckle… Thanks, RoSy!


    • Thank you, Richard. The kids brought the orchid and my favorite fridge foods. Kelli is a marvelous cook and always prepares a couple of my favorite foods to keep in the fridge. She is the most thoughtful person I know. She could demand that I walk the few steps to her kitchen to feed myself, but she doesn’t. I appreciate that. Her mother, the Hermit, you know… πŸ™‚


    • Ah, thank you, Sylvia! The kids brought it over along with my “Oakmeal” (A yogurt, fruit, raw oatmeal, Chia seeds dish that I absolutely love) and my favorite of Kelli’s concoctions, apple chicken salad. We call the oatmeal thing, “Oakmeal”, because that’s how Charlie pronounced it when he was a little fellow! πŸ™‚


    • Yes, it was a good day! Every day here with my family is a good day. I’m glad you enjoyed the orchids. Thank you for coming by to leave your good wishes! πŸ™‚


  6. Happy Mother’s Day to you!!!! The orchid photographs are so beautiful.
