The pictures in this post are from my favourite local walk every May and early June.

On approaching the area, I can smell the heady aroma of the flowers and soil from half a kilometre away and then as I draw near, the riot of colours feeds in visual delight: the azaleas, rhododendrons, hanky tree, bluebells, lilacs, buttercups, lily of the valley, hosta of many kinds, tulip tree, Chilean rhubarb and others that I do not know.

I am posting them today when my Mother would have turned 97. She made her transition November 30, 2007. She loved walking and never stopped being awed by the beauty all around her. She would take it all in and say, full of wonder; ”It’s so beautiful.” Here’s to you, Mom.
