Cati and Tiny Blooms

Tiny things can be really intriguing to me.  I love looking at the details and enjoying the finer things in life.  Bigger is not always better when it comes to macro photography.

Cactus is one of the hardiest plant that I know and it is really low maintenance. I have yet to try looking after a cactus. I hope that I don’t kill it instead.

“cabbage like” cactus

This cactus reminds me of a cabbage head. It sure looks looks like a great  plant to add to  garden to give it a  rustic theme.

This bloom must be from the same family as the one pictured above. It was  on a branch instead of on the ground.

I personally prefer the cactus green then dark brown/ purplish.  The petals are more define in the 2nd picture above then the third one.

This cactus reminds me of un-riped bananas minus the spikes at the end.

Do you have cactus in your garden?

Mother’s Day Thoughts

Mother's Day Card
Mother’s Day Card

Over the weekend I celebrated my 13th Mother’s  Day with the kids. It has been a challenging and fulfilling 13 years for me being a mother. I can say that it is one of the most complex job that I have.

Being a mother is more then just  a status. It is a major responsibility that last throughout your entire life.   The dynamics of motherhood changes  as the child grows up. It is an ongoing learning experience  dealing with new challenges that are  hurled my way frequently.

From a mother of one to a mother of three it has been extremely challenging for me handing the kids solo without any helper all these years.

I’m grateful that my mom, who is still working,  helps out with the kids on the weekend so that I am able to get a breather of a few hours.

My 3 kids are my pride and joy.  They are my pillar of strength which support me through the difficult times.

They can make you feel extremely happy one moment and send you into an instant rage i the next.  Euphoria and Anxiety are also some of the moods that I experience frequently as a mother.

Every day is a learning experience for me interacting with them. I’m really fortunate to be able to be there 100% present for them during their childhood years.

How was your Mother’s Day?
