'Mums

Happy Mothers Day to all those women in the world who have borne the gift of life. My mama is in Hawaii, sunning herself and spending the day with her sister, who is a new mother herself. And to my sisters, both mothers to be, this day belongs to you too and will do so forever more. A chrysanthemum for each of you and a towering cake of flowers for us to share.

Beautiful photos - are they yours? The flowers look great in the small dishes. I particularly like the photo with the doily; the textures go really well together!

Darn these are so beautiful! Just lovely.

Hope your mum (and you of course :P) had a wonderful day!

Kristin said...

Oh My BEAUTIFUL! Every time I visit you blog the two words that comes to mind every time are "Just Beautiful". What lovely taste you have!

Happy Day To You!

These look almost edible! Gorgeous!

I had the same thought as Kathryn that these photos make the flowers look "delicious". I always love your photos!

I am so taken by your stunning photography! Still learning how to capture that dreamy, blissful look in my photos.

thank for helping me see chrysanthenums in a fresh light - i've always been turned off by the sad bunches they trot out for mothers day.
I think i might have to get some and play with arranging them in dishes...

Would it be okay if I featured your lovely pics on my blog, and gave you a link?
