Kate’s Favorite Pics – Mother’s Day Walk

These flowers beckoned me to explore, but without an invitation I passed by.


I was dying to venture further into this garden to see more.


I thought this walk was the best gift I could give myself on Mother’s Day.


What delightful luck to have a sunny afternoon on Mother’s Day!
