cohen twins walking down the street


When it comes to sweet, it generally involves children or dessert.  Our families are important to us and building loyalty and responsibility for one another begins by being taught those values in the home from an early age.

My husband and I have loved this photo from the moment we saw it.  My twin grandsons, who were three years old at the time, were taking a walk down the street with their parents.  Sibling love and support, when it exists, is something I consider to be sweet and to be cherished.

calla lilies purple


“Flowers always make people better, happier, and more helpful; they are sunshine, food and medicine to the mind.”
― Luther Burbank

Three years ago, on Mother’s Day, I was gifted four calla lily plants by my children.  As this is my favorite flower ~ in all of its variations ~ the plants were multicolored.  Removed from their plastic pots, they were replanted near the front door, but I didn’t know if they would come up again or if the deer would eat them all.  They had eaten my tulips, bulbs and all!!

They grew again!! Their growing rates were staggered and I enjoyed some temporary beautiful lush blooms.  It does help to see new growth before our eyes instead of only within.


Thank you so much for stopping by!  I hope that you enjoy your visit.
