  1. Happy Mother’s Day to you, Karen. 🙂 We can use the warmth because we are struggling to get above 50. Who knew we’d still be looking for spring in May. 🙂

  2. monique says:

    Same to you Karen!

  3. I enjoyed looking at the beautiful floral photos in this post. 🙂 I remember talking about New Dawn roses with you — we have them climbing around the front door. They are such pretty flowers.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Cecile, New England has not had the best of weather lately. I hope you enjoy the day with your family…you need to be waited on especially well with your broken ankle. Thank you for your wish and I’m happy that you enjoyed the flowers.

  13. Penny says:

    Lovely flowers for Mother’s Day. Spring is the perfect time to remember Mothers. Happy Mother’s Day Karen.

    • Karen says:

      I’m glad you liked the flowers Penny, all but two of the photos were from our New England gardens. I hope you enjoy your day as well.

  14. Beautiful pics! Thanks for sharing them… as others have commented, it has been a wet and chilly spring here in New England! Your pictures reminded me of what spring is supposed to look like. 💐

    • Karen says:

      Thank you for your complement, Jean…I’m glad that you enjoyed the photos. Spring in New England was my favorite season. Hopefully your weather will improve soon.

    • Karen says:

      Thank you for your wish, Gerlinde. I’m glad you enjoyed the photos. I loved the New Dawn Roses that grew on the picked fence around my vegetable garden…it was so New England, if you know what I mean.

  17. aFrankAngle says:

  22. Deb C says:

    Same to you Karen! Beautiful flowers.

  23. The climbing roses are fabulous! Thank you for sending the virtual gift of flowers Karen, Happy Mother’s Day!

    • Karen says:

      I’m happy to know that you enjoyed the flowers Deb. Not only did the roses climb along the length of my picket fence, they also grew up and onto the roof of my garden shed at our home in New Hampshire. The were beautiful and the fragrance was wonderful. 🙂

  24. Norma Chang says:

    Thank you Karen, your greetings and beautiful flowers brightened my day. Happy Mothers’ Day to you too.

  25. Eva Taylor says:

    Happy Mother’s Day to you Karen. Your beautiful photos of flowers are perfect timing as our spring has been delayed by frost we had in mid March. The Japanese cherry blossoms aren’t even showing signs of their blooms yet! The Lilly of the valley should be ready next week provided we have good warmth and sun this week.

    • Karen says:

      I’m happy that you enjoyed the flowers, Eva. Yes…it appears that all my friends up north have had a very cool and wet spring this year. Our orchard was always in bloom for Mother’s Day…I’ve been wondering if it has bloomed on schedule this year?

  26. Nothing says it quite like flowers! Thanks for a peek at all of these beauties and Happy Mother’s Day, all!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Siobhan, It is so nice to hear from you. 🙂 I’m glad that you enjoyed the photos of the flowers. I hope you have had a lovely day with your family.

  27. Thank you, Karen! Happy Mother’s Day to you as well!

  28. Cathy says:

    What gorgeous flowers Karen! I am not a mother, and Mother’s Day is in March in the UK, but I still wish you a lovely Sunday. I am relaxing after a busy week too 🙂

    • Karen says:

      Thank you for your nice wish, Cathy. I’m glad that you enjoyed the photos from my New England gardens. I now have your lovely gardens to admire when I miss all the flowers that I used to grow.

  29. ZazaCook says:

  33. rozpaige says:

    What a lovely gesture, Karen! Thank you so much! It has been a most lovely Mother’s Day, spending time in our gardens, sipping on some strawberry bellini’s, chasing our new puppy through the grass, and receiving the most wonderful phone calls from our children. May your day be blessed too!

  34. cheri says:

    Happy Mothers Day to you too Karen, such a beautiful and thoughtful post.

    I hope you had a wonderful Mother’s Day Karen! The flowers are beautiful.

  39. Shari says:

    What beautiful flowers! And such a sweet message to go with them. I especially love the hydrangias. They are my favorite flower! I hope you had a wonderful day, too, Karen!

    • Karen says:

      Thank you for your kind words, Shari. I’m glad you enjoyed the post and flowers. The Endless Summer hydrangeas were from one of our gardens at our summer cottage in Maine. I wish I could grow them here in Florida.

  40. Gretchen says:

    All such gorgeous flowers. My hydrangeas are just now beginning to bloom, behind schedule this year. I hope you enjoyed your Mother’s Day.

  41. Karen says:

    I’m happy to know that you enjoyed the flowers, Gretchen. Hydrangeas are so lovely, I know you will enjoy yours throughout the summer.

  42. mae says:

    Beautiful flowers and sentiment to match!

  43. The pictures are absolutely beautiful!!! Hope you had a beauty and lovely Mom’s day!

  44. megtraveling says:

    What gorgeous flowers and lovely wishes for Mother’s Day – thank you Karen!

  45. thesnowwoman says:

    Beautiful flowers, especially the big pink roses!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Lori, I’m happy that you enjoyed the flowers. The pink roses are called New Dawn and grew along the picket fence around my vegetable garden in New Hampshire.

  46. Lovely flowers, hope you had the best day.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Caroline, Thank you for your wish and nice compliment. BTW, I’m having trouble with my comments going through on your blog…liked your bean stew. 🙂

  47. Thank you very much Karen for your sweet post. I hope your mothers day was delightful. Such gorgeous blooms! Take care

  48. A belated ‘Thank You’ to you. My only son who lives far from me was on a business trip, but that phone call made my day. I hope you had a great one, Karen! 🙂

    • Karen says:

      Thank you for your wish, Fae. Isn’t it nice that your son took time out of his business trip to remember you…I’m sure you enjoyed the call.

  49. Beautiful roses and happy Mother’s Day to you as well! Our older son came over and made dinner for us – homemade pasta with pesto, cheese, and zucchini.

    • Karen says:

      Thank you Jason, it sounds like the meal your son prepared was delicious. The New Dawn roses were very hardy and survived New England’s harsh winters. Wish I could successfully grow roses here in Florida but all the summer rains are problematic.

  50. These photos are so pretty! I’m not a mother myself, but I love this day for honoring those who are.

  51. Karen says:

    I’m glad that you enjoyed the photos Lisa, thank you.

  52. restlessjo says:

    Beautiful! Hope you had a lovely day too, Karen 🙂

  53. Thank you for the lovely flowers, Karen! My day was wonderful and I hope yours was too! Linda

  54. Such gorgeous flowers! They bring sunshine even a week after Mother’s Day! Thank you!!!

  55. Louise says:

    Simply lovely, Karen:)
    Mother’s Day may have passed, (I hope your day was glorious:) But, your flowers have most certainly brightened my day. (It was a dreary rainy day here in PA and now I feel all Springy just seeing these lovely flowers and reading your beautiful words. Thank you Karen:)

  56. Karen, this is such a lovely post! Those pictures of all the flowers are beautiful! Thank you!!

  57. So beautiful! It made me happy to scroll through this lovely post. I hope you had a lovely Mother’s Day!
