Saturday Snapshot (May 11, 2013) Happy Mother's Day with Flowers

My DH was on the computer about a week ago and I told him NOT to get me flowers...but...
Here is what I have received for Mother's Day.

First, this is our healthy rose bush showing buds on April 27 and then blooms on May 5. 

My DH picked some of the roses for me and I took this picture May 8.

 In spite of my instructions to not buy me anything,
these roses and chocolates arrived Wednesday.
My DH really is a sweet guy!

Then yesterday when I got home from work there was a box
that I knew was from my son in Hawaii. :-)

Layer two:

 Layer three:

 Beautiful tropical flowers!

 So these are all available to grace my table on Sunday.

Just their thoughts would suit me but it is nice to receive these physical gifts.
I hope all you mothers have wonderful blessings too!
