Flowers and the SK spin

Hope everybody enjoyed the weekend. Ours was pretty low-key and my guys got me some lovely flowers for Mother’s Day—two hostas, a dwarf Coreopsis and two flats of pink Wave petunias. (Of course, now I have to find the time to plant them. Gardening isn’t enjoyable for me. It’s work. And I find cleaning the bathroom more enjoyable than tending the garden, but I don’t tell them that. Except for my peony. I love my peony.)

And the Short Kid brought a Mother’s Day gift home from school, of course. His face in silhouette, with a Mother’s Day message on the back.

Mom, I love you to pluto and back. You are as nice as a 20 ton bowl of ice cream. Yoar the best mom!

He’s so sweet and original (though I’m guessing I might need to de-LOL cat his spelling.) :lol:

    Knowing my guys, I’m surprised he didn’t use Uranus for the cheap laugh. They may have “officially” changed the pronunciation before he was born, though. Don’t remember.

    I spent hours yesterday weeding, planting, watering, mulching. Got a little too much sun and my shoulders are killing me. I told him next year to get me a card and an iced coffee. :lol:
