Art In Bloom At A Glance

Hello, dear friends.  Happy Mother's Day.  I hope that all the Moms out there are reading this while being spoiled rotten. 

A couple of weeks ago, the Mister and I were invited to attend the Art In Bloom exhibit at the MFA with our friends, Annie and Bob.  

For more than 40 years, the festival has paired art from the MFA’s collection—from ancient to contemporary—with floral interpretations created by 50 New England-area garden clubs.  

We were fortunate because the museum was not crowded.  It was probably because everyone was at the beach.  It was a beautiful day.

Annie and I tried to pose for this pic with solemn faces like our friends in the painting, but we couldn't do it.

The Mister indulging in a serious one-on-one with George.

I caught the Mister whispering sweet nothings to this young lady.

Looks like this little girl was as enamored with the young lady as the Mister!

Like his hero James Bond... my man misses nothing.


She looks as bored as I do when the Mister mentions the word budget.

We feasted on a wonderful late lunch at one of my favorite restaurants, Abe & Louie's.

What else could we ask for?
 Good friends, fabulous food, with a dash of culture.

Until next time...

  6. Hello dearest Katie
    A very happy Mother's Day, I do hope you are having a wonderful day and enjoying some spoiling and lots of treats from your girls. You deserve it, you are the very definition of a beautiful mother.
    Is the sun shining for you? I hope so, it has been a glorious day over here. The lilacs, clematis and lily of the valley in my garden are making a sweet perfume on the warm spring air. I'm hoping the good weather will hold until next weekend for the wedding, I can't wait !! :)

    Much love and happy mother's day
