Mother's Day Flowers

I've been blessed this year! set of siblings I babysit brought me these lovely potted pruple tulips. My favorite flower is tulips! I have lots growing around the house...and always pick them to bring them inside. Now I have a whole pot inside! AND, the best part...I can plant these bulbs in my garden just as soon as they stop blooming. Lovely flowers for years to come! son gave me $10 and asked me to pick myself out some flowers. I love making flower arrangements and messing with colors and textures for boquets. I searched all of DuBois on Friday night, didn't find anything that really begged to come home with me. Sooooo, I went to Walmart in St. Marys on Saturday afternoon. I found a lovely boquet of roses...ON CLEARANCE! These babies were perfect...starting to open up. Such an unusual color too...the inside of the petals are blood red...the outside is a kakki color. Very pretty and *different*. The boquet had 20 was a stem only...and three had their stems broken off right at the base of the flower. Those three buds are floating in a glass dish on my coffee table...the other 16 are in this boquet! Such a thoughtfull kid! :)

I didn't get flowers this year, instead Randy and the kids took me to Altoona for a baseball game. :) Then to Outback Steakhouse.
