I am totally with Madeleine. I love lilies of the valley. Ironically I had planted a ton of them at my old house before I remarried (where my daughter lives now) And just the other day I took a few and replanted them at my "now" house. Happy Mother's day and enjoy your day! :-)

Happy Mom's Day Heather. They have frappucinos half price at Starbucks this week, yummy.

Love your cute sketch, what a wonderful way to depict the water lilies, from Madeline's perspective.

One of my mom's favorites, she used to wear Lily of the Valley perfume when I was growing up. This makes me feel like Madeline!
cheers, dana

Wonderful Heather!!! I must run out and see if any of my Lilies of the Valley are in bloom (hard to tell as I haven't yet cleaned up the garden....) A beautiful sketch! (And green - not pink!)

Happy Mother's Day and SS - Have fun!

Madeline has good taste, Lily of the valley are gorgeous little flowers, maybe not so little to her however.

Lily of the Vally is one of my favorite flowers and I have such vivid memories of playing in patches of them as a child, imagining an entire fairy world amongst them. Happy Mother's Day! I hope it was blessed and full of love.
