My Mother's Day

Wow. What a day. I have been wished a Happy Mother's Day by many bloggers, and I want to thank all of you as I have been negligent in doing likewise! Thank you to Eric and Indigo in their links and Indigo... I hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day!

I got an e-card from VW. And then Sissy... wow, you just have to check out the poem written just for me posted on her site from my three blogchildren.. Brings a tear to my eye! It's just so nice they don't see me as a troglodyte.

And for my boys... this is funny... of course.

I was on the phone with Tammi, coming home from the gym and as I start to pull in the driveway, I see three little people carrying plants to the front yard. My husband is grinning and walks over to my car (damn, he's a nice looking man) and says, "The boys are setting up your butterfly garden. Can you drive around the block again?"

So I call Tammi back and tell her I know I got a birdbath and a butterfly garden. I am laughing and I say, "Is it just me? Am I the only one seeing the eocsystem here? The food chain...?" She is laughing too and saying, "Oh no, I see it too!"

I come back to the house and they are finished.

They take me out front and there is this great bird bath, just as I've wanted, and around it they have placed all the butterfly garden plants. I say nothing about the food chain. I am completely choked up by their, the four of them, thoughtfulness.

Suddenly, my 2nd son says, "Hey! We can't put these plants here! The birds will eat all the caterpillars! We have to move them!" I start to laugh, my husband looks at me and says, "Oh crap, I didn't think of that!"

It was just so funny.

We are now moving the butterfly garden to the center of my front yard. When complete, I will post a picture. When I finish my gardening around the birdbath... a picture will follow.

Don't hold your breath. I have a black thumb.

Sounds wonderful! I'm sure you will enjoy it, even if the birds get some 'free food'.
