Mother’s Love

This morning during an Ellie walk I came across Mom and her ducklings tucked away in a small pond in front of a farm house.  My attention went to them when willy-nilly Mom made  a ruckus lunging towards us as her babies swam to take cover under a shrub nearby.  I wish I could have lingered to photograph the  beautiful family but our presence was causing great stress. I marvel at the training the youngsters followed and a Mother’s love… thinking of my own dear Mom…

Mary Stone, owner of Stone Associates Landscape Design & Consulting. As a Landscape Designer, I am grateful for the joy of helping others beautify their surroundings which often leads to sharing encouragement and life experiences. These relationships inspired my weekly column published in THE PRESS, 'Garden Dilemmas? Ask Mary', began in 2012. I dream of growing the evolving community of readers into an interactive forum to share encouragement and support in Garden and Personal Recoveries - seeking nature’s inspirations, stimulating growth, weeding undesirables, embracing the unexpected. Thank you for visiting! Mary
