your card is very pretty ginnie. i love orchids. you made a wonderful masterpiece out of this photo.
happy mother's day to you!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Seraphine. Orchids are Astrid's favorite flower, so this is also a tribute to her.
Gorgeous card; Holland has such beautiful flowers!
Ginnie Hart: Holland certainly doesn't have a monopoly on beautiful flowers, Mark, but it does have them in spades! Thanks.

Thanks, Ginnie. I'll go with that, even though Motherhood is one of those adventures that I have [unfortunately] not been able to experience at first hand.
Ginnie Hart: I must say, Ray, there's nothing quite like it...especially when one of the times it's as a grandmother. smile Thanks.
I love this style, it looks like a painting, a beautiful idée, a lovely thought. A bientôt VAL
Ginnie Hart: You're very kind, Valérie. Merci.

Een goede Moederdag ook voor jou.
I just love the orchids and you did a wonderful job with this picture, the texture is amazing.
It was a nice day to remember and we had the most beautiful weather.......smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank God for the volcanic ash that totally changed our schedule around. I think that Keukenhof day was possibly the best weather day of the year thus far! I love that I could share it with YOU. Hartstikke bedankt, mijn vrouw.
Superb composition. Colours are very beautiful. Have a lovely week-end Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: I don't often show flowers, Antoine, but once in awhile I do like to try my hand at them. Merci.
Very nice.
I rang mum in NZL, she was chuffed.
Nice card Ginnie.
Cheers
Rob
Ginnie Hart: It sounds like you did your "son's duty," Rob, to make your mum feel special. I have a son in Atlanta who probably doesn't even know today is Mother's Day. (sigh) But my daughter has more than made up for it. smile Thanks.
Very beautiful, Ginnie. Flowers always seem to be a part of Mother's Day.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Mary, and you're right. In two hours we will attend High Tea here at our senior-living complex in Gorinchem, honoring we who are mothers. Astrid and I both fit the bill, of course, so we look forward to the celebration. smile
Better than any commercial shop card I've seen, Ginnie. Beautifuly captured and presented, as always.
Ginnie Hart: You always know how to make my day, Paul. smile Thank you.

Happy mother's day, Ginnie! smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Cherise...and to you!
We had Mothering Sunday on 14th.March Ginnie which is the Christian name for the day although the media and business call it Mother's Day, all very confusing to an old fellow like me. Whatever it is a lovely picture for the occasion.
Ginnie Hart: Maybe if we gathered all the days, Brian, we'd have enough for all the days of the year? Our mothers certainly deserve it. Thanks.
A lovely picture with texture, Happy Mothers Daysmile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, dear Linda. And to think I've met YOUR mother!
I like this framing, it is superb!Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, dear Roland.

Truly beautiful, Ginnie - hope you and Astrid had a wonderful day!
Ginnie Hart: Oh, Toni. It was delightful in every way! Thank you. We had High Tea here at our assisted-living complex and enjoyed all kinds of goodies and lots of laughs with men and women both who love to live life in their sunset years. At 55 (minimum age here) Astrid is one of the youngest in the bunch. I think they all love the youth we bring to the place. grin
gorgeous post!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, dear Heather.

I love the colors and the softness that blend well with the theme of the day.
In France it is in June

J'aime les couleurs et la douceur qui se marient bien au thème de cette journée.
En France c'est au mois de juin

Ginnie Hart: Ahhhh. I know different countries celebrate the day in other months, LoLO. I'm lucky that it's the same day in both Holland and the USA (where my son, daughter and grandson live). Merci.
