And now shall mine head be lifted up..offering joy...
Psalms 27:6

After we took our friend Florence out to eat dinner we stopped to look at the
Richard D. Swenson Sundial and spotted these Pasque Flowers on the grounds.. (Had to look them up to identify the correct name.). They are an Easter flower but are blooming later this year because of the cold spring...I thought they were beautiful and immediately was drawn to them..

Let the Purple Pasque
That bloom in May,
Bless your path
On Mother's Day...
Poetry by me, AJP

I want to wish all mothers a Happy Mother's Day...I will be off-line this weekend as we are going to visit my mother at the Rest Home where she resides and will try my best to get caught up when we return.
