Happy Birthday, Jeanne

Wintry Blossoms

Twenty-seven years ago this morning – 10:31 am to be precise – I gave birth to my first child. I look back and remember those early days of motherhood as being among the most precious of my life.

Here are my Happy Birthday wishes to my older daughter.

Enjoy. Laugh. Love.

  3. Amazing photo. You always have wonderful photos.

  4. The golden light reflecting on the spines of the thistle head seem to be candles all aglow with tiny flames and make this an apt BD Pix. I think, perchance, that I spy snow in the backgroud. Very nice.

  5. I love this… great capture of glowing seed heads. I tend to photograph seed heads too… sometimes they smile. 🙂

    Best birthday wishes to your daughter… and to you, too, as mom, Barbara.
