Growing and Growing

So many beautiful, tasty things growing outside in our gardens. I'm really looking forward to the figs. Mama and each I had one this evening. (Okay, obviously I'm still a little tired. ......Mama and I each had one this evening.) :)
I drove over to Mississippi on Sunday and brought Mama back with me on Monday. It was a long, tiring trip, but we're here and all is well. Thank God! Mama has been in rehab for a month and a half after her knee replacement surgery and she is doing so well! She's just going to spend a little time with us before going back home to live in her very own house again. My brother lives right next door to her, so she is well looked after.

Our daughter Ruthie's birthday was Sunday, but we celebrated a day early so I could share in the birthday cake. I surely did not want to miss out on that!
Hope you're having a wonderful time

Hugs and kisses,

Your mom is so lucky to have you and her brother to help care for her. And Happy Belated Birthday to your daughter!

I hope your mom has a lot of fun while visiting with you. She's so fortunate to have you and the brother to care for her.

Happy belated birthday to Ruthie.

Your garden and flowers are looking great.

What beautiful blooming things you have. Lovely photos. And I'm reading into this that perhaps you're a cake Connoisseur? Hee. Just being silly. I'd want to stick around for that, too. Happy Birthday to the family since it was a special day the day Ruthie was born. Happy to read Mom is with you for a while. Nice for everyone!!!

Lovely photos of your garden. I saved sunflower seeds from last year and I am going to plant them everywhere this year as the birds got most of them last year. Cake looks nice Belated wishes to Ruthie. Hope the week with your mum has been just dandy. Cheers
