In The Yard

While in VA. Beach today I stopped by my mom's. I hadn't been over there for a few weeks, and during the time I had been away spring has sprung. The azalea bushes and the Phlox caught my eye the mintue we pulled in the drive.
I love this flower and it reminds of two special ladies. My friend Sharon and her mom Doris. This patch is from original cuttings that Doris had in her yard. When Doris passed away the phlox was forgotten for many years. Life went on and Sharon moved away. One year while visiting my ex and I she went by her mom's old house. The phlox was in bloom so she went to the door and ask the new home owner if she could have some of it. She divided it with me. I planted some and gave my mom some. Both Sharon's and mine died not long after being transplanted, but my mom's thrived and has come back every year.
While taking pictures of it I happened to look over in the corner of the front yard and saw this group of clay critters.
They made me smile and I hope they make you smile too.
