A 90th Birthday!

My mom turned 90 on Friday. My daughter came home from Boston and we celebrated with a dinner at Mom's house.
I think she looks pretty good for 90 despite her recent fall.
The three generations of women in our family.
We didn't set the cake on fire with 90 candles. I settled for 10.
We had a really nice celebration. 

 This weekend I am going to get some long-awaited shopping time with my daughter. That is one thing that I really miss doing with her. It is just not as much fun shopping alone.

My garden is starting to get some color. I went with Hubby to pick out some hanging baskets for my Mother's Day gift.
 Aren't they all so pretty. My MIL gave me the one on the left below.
My lavender azalea has finally bloomed.
I looks pretty near the pink that is almost past peak.
I also have another pink azalea that hides behind the pool.
I has that same two color thing going on. The rhododendron behind it is just about to bloom also.
I hope I remember to take a picture when it opens up. I think I will wait until next weekend to buy my flowers for potting. This weekend I will enjoy my daughter's visit. 

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Happy birthday to your mom. I love the three generation picture.

    Your flowers are beautiful. Those azaleas are breathtaking.

  2. Happy Birthday to your Mom, Cathie. She is 90 years young! She looks wonderful and you all look very happy. Glad you were able to celebrate together. Happy shopping. RJ @stitchingfriendsforever2

  4. Cathie, Your Mom looks fantastic and a very Happy Birthday to her!!
    I think the rose afghan is stunning, if the green blends with the other it will be fine,just like nature, nothing is exactly the same color. Mary@stitchingfriendsforever2

  5. happy birthday to your mom! happy daughter visiting and shopping day! Everyone looks happy :)

  6. Your mom looks wonderful, Cathie! She is almost the same age as my mom :) Aren't we blessed to still have them with us!

    Lovely flowers--I still haven't bought mine. It's been so rainy here in western PA that I haven't even had a chance to get out to the garden centers. Hope to get some this weekend!
