My sweet, beautiful, song-filled mother who left this world in April, the blooming time. This was one of the last pictures I took of her.

When I looked at the original of this photo in the Beloved theme, I felt it was too blue and washed out. Took it off, and pumped up the blacks a bit. Now I am a little sorry I did because I lost all the sweet and inspiring comments that were posted with the last one. Thanks to all who commented before. Let me know what you think of the change. Working on this was like stroking her cheeks again.
