Happy Mother's Day Mom!

Every year I get to spend mother's day with my mom. She is amazing, she helps me in the garden, cooks, cleans, shops and does so much more. I'm always a lunatic at this time of year and never have a card and a beautiful gift for her. But my mom never complains, today she spent the day with us in the garden, backbreaking work as usual.

We took a two minute break to snap a few photos in my glider (that of course mom happened to buy for us). We have no make-up on and our dirty garden clothes but that's how it is.

If you look closer you'll see my muddy knees, thankfully you can't see my dirty fingernails too. Does anybody have a magic remedy for those fingers? Last week I had to shake 128 hands at an award ceremony and I was mortified at the thought that somebody would see the dirt I can't get out of my hands.

Happy Mother's Day all, especially to my wonderful mother!

I think it is great! You both enjoy the time together. Mu mom and me are very much like that too. And about your fingernails, don't bother... it just means you are not afraid of hard work, and tell them "You should see my garden"...lol. I am in the same boat!

hugs....Brooke

Happy Mother's Day! I try to wear gloves but even then the hands and nails look terrible! Gail

Great photos, melanie, and your mom sounds great, too! I can see how wonderfully you two get along just by looking at the pictures. As for the dirt, if you can't bring yourself to consider it a gardener's badge of honor as I do, they say that running your fingernails over bar soap before gardening does the trick. The soap gets under your nails, and then it and any dirt wash right out. Good luck!

Hey we're gardeners...we look good dirty!

If you can stand them, gardening gloves can be the cure. I would much rather have my hands in the dirt, but hate having to dig out the dirt out from under my nails.

You are truly blessed to have a mom like the one you so sweetly decribed!
