The beautiful striped pink flowers are from my Aunt Joyce. I love that she always remembers to send me flowers on mother's day, though I am not her mother she thinks enough of me and the job that I am doing to always send me something beautiful to let me know that she is thinking of me. The long stemmed red ones are from Owen and the kids. For those of you that don't know, Owen HATES to buy cut roses, be would rather sped the same money and get a rose bush that blooms forever. He think that is throwing money away. This is only the third time that I have gotten roses from him. The first was when he proposed, the second was when I gave birth to Jared and these. So I think that now that I am a mother of five I was deserving of roses and because they are few and far between they are very special. I know next year he will go back to buying flowers for the garden.
