Mother's Day Outing

For the last few years, we've arranged to spend a day with my Mom, doing something that we never take time to do the rest of the year. This time, Mom asked if we could visit some greenhouses so we headed over Camrose way and did some touring - and a little buying!

There is just something about the riot of color and green growing things that makes me smile!

I have never seen such a beautiful greenhouse! It was immaculate with gorgeous displays of planted pots, waterfalls and plant groupings. Everything was in full bloom and I just wanted to sit down on a bench and bask in the glory of colours and scents!

There were really beautiful bronze Rain Bells that you hang in your eavestrough and as the rain falls through them, you hear a lovely rushing water sound. I had never seen anything like them before.

Our treat for Mom was to take her to have a pedicure and get her toenails painted for the summer sandals season. She loved the paraffin wax treatment. It's so nice to treat her in a special way that she would never splurge on for herself.
