Hau’oli La Makuahine!

Four Generations! My mom, me, my maternal
grandma, and my daughter (age 6)
Hope all you moms out there had a wonderful Happy Mother’s Day (Hau’oli La Makuahine!)

Here's a picture of the four generations of moms in my family. Ashley is now 26 and married, but not yet a mom. Make me a grandma, Ash!!!

Hmm . . . I wish I could have celebrated Mother's Day by scrunching my toes in warm Hawaiian sand while sauntering along the shore and drawing in the salty scents of aqua blue breaking waves.

But, I settled for a nice day with family. What could be better than that? Especially when I get to plant and hang my new flowering baskets and vegetable gardens. Yup—I did it! Can’t plant in my yard because of the deer and bunnies, so it’s on the deck for everything.

Can’t wait to try the topsy-turvy tomato planters as well as the peppers (I have about five different types of peppers) and strawberries too. I already have snow peas and bush beans growing in boxes on the deck. And then there are the three hanging baskets filled with flowers. I should post some pictures once I get everything in place, huh? The Pacific Northwest may not have the sun like Hawaii, but I like to think I can still grow a little produce during our short summer!

How did you celebrate Mother’s Day? And what are you planting this spring? Whatever project you’re working on—enjoy!

  1. Happy Mother's Day!
    I did topsy turvy tomatoes last year and the deer ate them anyway!

  2. I'd be really, really surprised if they could navigate up the stairs to my deck. It's on an upper level!

    Hope you had an amazing, blessed Mother's Day, Karla.

  3. Awww, cute picture! What beautiful ladies you all are. :)
    P.S. Sorry for being Anon. I couldn't get Google to work!

  4. Glad you stopped by, Emily! And thanks for the sweet comment. The photo is a little distorted because I had to stand on my tip-toes and hold my camera up high to take a picture of the wall photo!



I love hearing from my readers! Mahalo for visiting and commenting. Aloha! --Cheryl
