When we headed out on Friday evening to join our son and his family for dinner, hubby says - "Let's get some strawberries for the boys!" So, we went across the street to buy them and visited with the flower grower and her son, and I decided to get our daughter-in-law a bouquet of flowers, too. Of course I had my camera -- what do you think of this Dahlia! I'm in love with it!
I snapped photos of their buckets of flowers - they were harvesting them to take to the Montavilla Farmers Market on Sunday.
How's this for modern day.. mom is on the cell phone speaking Hmong to someone while cutting flowers. :-)
I asked mom her name and I think it was "Kim".. we asked the boys name but I'm sorry I've forgotten it. He translated for her. This is the bouquet she was putting together for me.
For those of you who asked how I'm doing since they left.. I guess I'm going through a grieving process. I think of those little faces and the hugs and the sounds of their voices and choke up and tears come to my eyes. I am going to have to toughen up. How do you do that?
I hope you're having a great Sunday... and for you on the other side of the globe, I hope it WAS good! :-)
((hugs)), Teresa :-)
