Happy Birthday

Happy Birthday today, to my mom, who is 87 years old. She helped nurture the budding desire in me, as a child, to have my hands in the soil by giving me my first seed packet to plant. It was a packet of Sweet Peas.  She was especially fond of wildflowers. The photo is of her in the bluebonnets. She has been suffering from Alzheimer's now for the past 9 years. Happy Birthday Mom! I wish you could sit in the garden.
