Secret Garden

Due to a family medical situation -- everyone is fine, don't worry -- we spent a good chunk of the weekend at my mom's. And it was chaotic and noisy and, surprisingly, a whole lot of Zen, too. Because of my mother's garden.

Blue Bowl

I think my mother has one of the most beautiful gardens in the world. It's like visiting another place, another time, another planet sometimes. It's a combination of heirloom plants, wildflowers, roses, bushes, and tchochkes arranged unlike anywhere else I've ever seen.

Blue Gazing Ball

Things inside my parents' house can sometimes get hectic and rowdy, especially when there are extra people there and a baseball game is on, but walk outside and stand in the garden, take a deep breath and smell all that sweetness, and it's like inhaling an instant mood stabilizer.

White Chair

It's one of my favorite places in the world to be. If she had a pool and a cabana boy, I'd never leave.

Happy Mother's Day, Mom.
