Happy Mother's Day!

I shot this video Friday morning of our mama bluebird sitting on top of our swing post. She had some kind of grub in her mouth and was getting ready to feed her babies. Their nest is in a birdhouse on the arbor overlooking our garden. We can hear the babies, but haven't seen them yet. The bluebirds are a little more wary of people than the tree swallows. They don't fly up to the birdhouse while we're near, but I think they're starting to get used to us being around. We finally got our garden planted on this beautiful Mother's Day afternoon. I hope all of you mom's out there got to spend time with your peeps today.

This is me and my mom, or Ma as I liked to call her. I guess this picture was taken sometime early in 1959, the year I was born. My mom passed away a year ago this past April 29th. I miss her each and every day and wish she was here for me to wish her a Happy Mother's Day. She was the best! Love you now and forever Ma! Until we meet again.
