Mom, These Are for You


Virtual Roses for Mother’s Day, Sombrieul, Buff Beauty, Souvenir St. Anne’s, Souvenir de Madame Leonie Viennot 

Here’s to the fine woman who brightens our lives with love every day. To my Mom who always made me Chicken Kiev* and German Chocolate Cake on my birthday (I was smitten with international cuisine at an early age.) who managed to locate a bolo tie and vest for a second grader going through his Bat Masterson phase, who would tread water for hours awaiting the chilled child holding up the high dive line, and who still sends me boxes of Georgia’s finest pecans each winter. Here’s to my Mom who created countless fond memories of growing up around (and sometimes outside) the country and always with one constant; no matter what the address, it was always home.   Happy Mother’s Day, Mom!

What I was blogging about a year ago: Ringing the Return of the Bluebells.


  1. I’ve been thinking about your Mom. I remember our date back in college. We went to U-sing together. She wanted a good seat so she grabbed aholt of my hand and dashed through the crowd. She had the grip of a truck driver. I was so astounded that I didn’t have time to be embarrassed, but then it was your Mom.
