As it is for many, Mother's Day is a hard day for me. I don't have my mother any more, and being a mother myself just wasn't in the cards.
I picked myself a bunch of daffodils from the front of the house and then set off with my camera for a leisurely Sunday drive. It was blissful!
Remember to click to embiggen the photos :)
I'm always looking for painting inspiration. I can see this on a HUGE canvas!
The stone wall at this house was just brimming with cherry trees!
I had to crop it this way to get rid of the power lines. I like it though.
One of the horses and the donkey at the historic Coggeshall Farm in Bristol, RI.
This is one of the wonderful stone outbuildings at Coggeshall Farm. I think gnomes still live there :)
I ended up driving to Sakonnet Point. It was picture perfect.
I love this shot. Those little boats are just waiting for summer passengers.
And finally, just a roadside shot. You can see that not all of the trees have noticed spring is here! They'd better hurry before the snow flies again!
I ended my drive with a scoop of maple walnut ice cream as I reflected on my peaceful day.
Just what the doctor ordered!
I'll be gone for nearly a week. See you all when I get back!
