Mother's Day Memories.....






Remembering my dear mother - the pretty girl on the right in the photo, with her mum and siblings, including her twin brother on the left.  She grew up to be a most talented lady and the dearest mum in all of England.  
I miss her so much.

Gladys Mary 1911-2003

I scheduled this post before leaving for England as I'll be gone for Mother's Day.  Will be visiting with my two cousins - their mums are the eldest girl on the left with the double hair bows, and the twin on the left in my grandmother's arms.  My brother will also be visiting from his home in France - hopefully we four cousins will have a reunion in remembrance of our dear mothers.

Happy Mother's Day to each of you.

  1. Wishing you are very happy mothers day Mary!

    A beautiful photograph - you must treasure it.
    How wonderful you are all meeting up, it will be great fun.

    "Oh to be in England now that Spring is here" in the words of Robert Browning.

    You are there at the best time - the sheets of bluebells in the woods - oh how I would love to see those. I've only ever been in the height of Summer and in Winter - I loved them both - and I do love England and the English. I could easily live in a little village in the country - dreams are free!!!

    Please take some photos for us dear Mary - or am I asking too late I fear so!!!!!!!

    Hugs
    Shane

  5. Hi Mary! It's always lovely to stop by at your blog, although I must admit I have less and less time nowadays. Work , house children (DH!) gardening, painting and other projects take up all my time. Anyways..have a lovely trip to England, I can hear you long to go there!
    Our Mothers day isn't until the end of May...but enjoy yours!

  13. Hope you are enjoying your family reunion over here though the weather isn't being too kind to you I'm afraid. I love the little vinette with the photo, the dried rose and the sheet music - Begin the Beguine has always been one of my favourite songs along with pretty much everything else written by Cole Porter:)
