~~To all the mothers, stepmothers, grandmothers, great grandmothers, those of us in mothering roles, whether sisters, aunts, fathers working as both mommy and daddy, mothers whose children left this earth too soon, and those of us whose "children" have fur, feathers or scales: I hope you had an amazing and blessed Mother's Day! If you received flowers from Lilygrass, I hope we exceeded your expectations! Remember to give your flowers fresh water to keep them from wilting too soon.

May's official flower is lily of the valley. Today, I want to tell you more about these sweet little bell shaped flowers.

I hope you have all had a great weekend outside with those beautiful temps! I have a mild sunburn from running around all day Saturday. I had so much fun!

This week I want to talk about Mother's Day, which is this Sunday on the American calendar. Mother's Day is celebrated each year on the second Sunday in May. Anna Jarvis created Mother's Day in 1908, and it became an official holiday in 1914. Fact: Ms. Jarvis later became upset with the commercialization of the holiday and spent her last several years attempting to remove the holiday from the calendar.

As we near the end of April, I wanted to share something near and dear to my heart. I am sure many of you know April is National Autism Awareness month.

Welcome back, Oklahoma! I hope you enjoyed the milder temperatures and nourishing rain we had this past week. Is it just me, or is this year flying by?

Did you know it is Administrative Professionals Week?


While an entire week dedicated to honoring your professional staff is warranted, the official day of observance is Wednesday, April 22, 2015.

How about a little history lesson today? I do love history!

Storm season is officially here in Oklahoma. I love the rain's effects on the foliage, but I really don't love tornadoes. I hope each of you have a safe place or a storm shelter to get yourselves into should the need arise.


As I drive around Oklahoma City, I see everything blooming and beautiful.  One of my favorite plants is wisteria. Right now, the wisteria is blooming everywhere you turn and the scent is intoxicating! But I know wisteria are sneaky plants that can and will destroy your garden if given the chance, so today, we are going to talk about all things wisteria.
