We didn't get enough ice today to do anything other than slick up the roads. Plus I'm not really feeling the creative spirit. This is one of my archived images I shot a couple years ago. Still one of my favorites. Probably because my youngest son gave it to me. My boys, growing up, they always were giving me flowers, usually out of my own little garden! My oldest son always makes sure he gives me a plant each Mother's Day. Most of them don't live long or we move and can't take them. Hopefully this year will be different. I need to just let my husband take care of them as I'm not a greenthumb gardener. Still, the sentiment is sweet and I love each one they give me no matter where they come from or how long, or in my case, how little they last in my care! Thanks boys! I know it's only January, but the cold dreary day reminds me of your flowers. Suppose I needed some 'spring brightness' today.
