Sunday Surprises - Happy Mothers Day

No surprise to regular readers of my blog.  I, with the help of my guest photographer, are about to post some beautiful flower pictures for you.  Enjoy, whether you are a mother, were born of a mother, or care for children, or teach them.

My mother loved to grow things on her Bronx windowsill, including beautiful geraniums.  I dedicate this post.  This will be my 51st Mother's Day without her.

Jonquils.  These smell so nice.

I'm told these are black cherries.  They smell like honey.

Last, but not least, dogwood.

Now that you have enjoyed, go out and make a mother (you, or someone else) happy.
