Mother's Day Wildflowers

Go Postal and I headed to the mountains with friends yesterday. We would give anything to have an afternoon with our Mom's but since thats not possible, I hope they looked down on us and enjoyed the views. We were off the Parkway just past Julian Price park and had a great show of Spring wildflowers. My Mom would freak if she saw us sitting here...but its not as scary as it looks. This Cragway trail has several senic overlooks just like this.

This trail was full of painted trilliums!

And what a treat, Lady Slippers!

Sweet little clump of Iris

I know my Mom would love GP and I would have loved his Mom....if for no other reason than she formed him into the man I love!

Moms are smiling everywhere, every mother wants their child to be happy and to love and be loved! What a great hiking trail you found, and the views (far off and up-close) are both gorgeous!

Aw, you made me cry.

I'm glad you had a great day out there.

What a beautiful way to spend the day, remembering all the good things about both your moms!
