Ok, who dropped the hat?

Friday afternoon I approved the stonemason's proof of Mom's grave marker. I wasn't dreading going to the cemetery. So, suprised me again, I'm a bit weepy driving in. Pulled myself together, did what I had to do, walked out weepier than all get out. I've always cried easily but could control it. No more. I wonder how long this lasts?

Today's pleasant surprise is that two of the three lilacs are blooming. Of course, that darned macro problem is still with me where I manage to have the background perfectly in focus and a blurry blossom. Phooey. I did get one shot.

A second pleasant surprise is from the apricot tree. There are a few blossoms left in the midst of the green. It's such a nice change from the mayhem of sticks photos.

And, the little apricot below has a friend!


  1. I love Lilacs! One of my favorite flowers! Great shots!!!!

  2. Oh I meant to mention...I can't imagine how hard it must be to lose your mom and I will only know the feeling when it happens to me. Smelling and taking pictures of flowers is a great way of remembering your mom, her beautiful face and soul will always be remembered.

    The blossoms are beautiful. The cherry blossoms in DC should be in full bloom soon! ;o)

  3. oh...I want to apologize for my first comment, I was very tired and was reading another blog entry. LOL Duh? Prego brain!

  4. Hey Aimee, thanks for checking in on me. Yes, mom was a big, big flower person. I think that's one of the reasons I'm so attracted to them this spring.
