In this post I am also joining in with Cee’s Flower of the Day, Macro Monday, DSC_1006

Today’s Flowers

and

Cathy’s  wonderful ‘In a Vase on Monday ‘ where she invites us to find things in our gardens to pop in a vase each week. The great thing about this meme is that Cathy also adds a few props and each ‘Vase’ tells a story.

The mirror in the photo above is an appropriate prop for a ‘Vase’ referencing a myth about unrequited love. It was given to me many years ago by a boyfriend. Before I opened the present he told me that when I opened the wrapping I would see the most beautiful thing in the world – and of course, as it was a mirror, I saw myself!

Sadly the relationship ended before I wanted it too, but it is always nice to remember the good things and I still love that little mirror.

Photo Challenge Round Up: SPRING

DSC_0988

Mother’s Day happens in Spring here, and I get some lovely cards from my children, these were both made by my daughter, the collage was from a couple of years ago (I keep them all – of course!) and the wonderful daffodil doodle was this year’s card. Lucky me!
