Mother's Day Flowers

Now that it’s officially spring, there are a ton of blooming plants and trees in my neighborhood. When I run outside I notice a new array of brilliant colors on one block, Dr. Seuss-like plants I’ve never seen before on another and the amazingly heady scent of jasmine, lilac and other things I don’t recognize but smell amazing everywhere. I thought about sending my mom some cuttings from here for Mother’s Day but the risk of being arrested for trespassing prevented me from following through with the idea. Instead, she’s getting an arrangement from a local florist in her town (Surprise!) and these photos so she can imagine what it would be like to walk around my neighborhood with me. I love you, Mom. I hope you’re having a wonderful day. You deserve it.

To all the Mom’s out there, have a marivelous Mother’s Day! It’s your day to be showered with the love you’ve been showering on everyone else all year long.
