Happy Mother's Day

I believe that mother's are courageous.

This digital image is still in-progress, but for now it's gone as far as I know how to take it. The background is a scan Parfait dyed fabric and the cactus bloom is from my garden.


A mother is a person who seeing there are only four pieces of pie for five people, promptly announces she never did care for pie. ~Tenneva Jordan

Hundreds of dewdrops to greet the dawn,
Hundreds of bees in the purple clover,
Hundreds of butterflies on the lawn,
But only one mother the wide world over.
~George Cooper

Being a full-time mother is one of the highest salaried jobs... since the payment is pure love. ~Mildred B. Vermont
The sweetest sounds to mortals given
Are heard in Mother, Home, and Heaven.
~William Goldsmith Brown   

A suburban mother's role is to deliver children obstetrically once, and by car forever after. ~Peter De Vries

This has a very dreamy quality. The dyed fabric background is just right for it.

Wonderful PSE photo Gail. You're a quick study.
Isn't that cactus flower stunning? Even more so with the parfait fabric. Yes, mother's are courageous. :) Wonderful quotes too.
