For Mother’s Day, my mom asked to go to the Half Moon Bay Nursery and on a hike.
Since I worked on Sunday and and a friend came into town, we ended up postponing the activities until Monday, which ended up allowing us to avoid the crowds.
Although my mom ended up buying a variety of different flowers and plants, my favorite flowers were probably the geraniums. The bright pink kept catching my eye all over the nursery.
I often found the greenhouses and the roofs of the greenhouses had as much character as the flowers.
Sometimes, my favorite things were all of the different colors and shades a single type of flower could come in.
Sometimes, it was the texture that caught my eye.
Sometimes, it was just the way that the sun struck things.
Other times, it was learning about the flowers and plants.
As usual, I found and tried to make friends with the resident animals.
This time, it was the resident expectant cat.
We ended the day with a short drive and hike in the Redwoods on Skyline Drive.
Happy Mother’s Day to all of the mother’s (official and non-official) out there!
