Belated Mother's Day

Did all of you mothers out there have a magical (or at least relaxing) special day?  With gifts and cards and brunch and phone calls...a day brimming with appreciation for all you do and all you are?

I do hope so.  As for Mother's Day in the  p o t a g e  r

well, let's just say the weather was divine, the family was attentive, the garden was magical...

but the garden's mistress was recuperating from a surprise appendectomy and not quite at her best.

She does, however, reserve the right to revisit the holiday, even if it encroaches a bit on Dad's big day.  :)
