For Mother’s Day, I wanted to share with you a batch of some of my favorite images.

I love these images for the subject matter, pink roses are truly my favorite! I love how light, bright, soft and pretty these roses were. (In my mind’s eye they’ll always look like this.) But probably most of all, I love these shots because my son Conor took them. A few years ago, he followed me around the rose gardens with his camera, and what he photographed was how he viewed the roses coming into the house, and where they were arranged and placed throughout. It was a moment in time that we shared together, just the two of us. I think that’s what makes these images so special to me. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

Happy Mother’s Day!

Love, Nora

    Lovely! What a memory. How many bushes do you have to produce this many blooms?

      Hi Nan! The majority was cut from one mature ‘Eden’ rose shrub, one ‘Bonica’, and a ‘Fairy’. That’s it! There are more rose shrubs in the gardens, but these 3 did the job! Love, Nora

    Such a sweet post Nora. Motherhood is truly a blessing. Wisdom to capture events like this is another. Much love to you on this special day. Those roses are spectacular! One cannot possibly look upon them without a smiling.

    Nora, emailing from Australia.
    Has your son thought to reproduce & sell these images?
    There are several I’d be happy to have on my walls…
