Remember when I said I was crap at watercolour painting? See, I wasn’t lying. BUT, I’m pretty confident that you can at least tell that the flowers are lupines. I love lupines! Lupines remind me of one of my favourite childhood literary heros, Miss Rumphius, who strove to make the world a more beautiful place. Like Miss Rumphius, my mother makes the world around her more beautiful, too, and that’s just one of the many reasons why I love her so much. She also makes really great food and gives good shoulder rubs. She’s really great, my mom!
So happy belated Mother’s Day to my mother and all the mothers out there. But especially to my mother. I love you. Thanks for making the world beautiful and thanks for making ME. xx
