May Flowers and Mothers 

A time to share poems, songs, remembrances, photos and flowers

On glorious Wednesday afternoon, May 19, we gathered to celebrate “May Flowers and Mothers”. Our group met next to the Lyme Center Academy Building on Kathy Sherrieb’s patio, comfortably distanced with masks on. We shared a wonderful variety of things: tasty refreshments, beautiful fragrant flowers, and stories and poems about flowers and moms. We all came away uplifted, with an arrangement of flowers made from the mix of contributions from neighbors’ gardens.

We are so grateful to all who joined us for this lovely evening!

Please enjoy our collection from the evening … and join us for our next gathering!

Sunflower, The song shared by Shelby during the gathering, is playing.
