A very Happy Mother's Day to all the wonderful mothers who make this world special!
This is Medha's gift to me this year. She made it in her pottery class. It is a pinch-pot made just like how the ancient ones, the Anasazi, made a wide range of pots and containers. The plant is a little wilted because she brought it home and hid it in the backyard in a very conspicuous bright blue plastic bag. I would have missed it if she hadn't led me to it by not allowing me in a particular corner of the yard that I had no intentions of going to! The next day we had high winds and it looked like it might storm, so I asked her to bring it in. It was a good thing she did because the poor plant was already suffering. We repotted it and we are hoping that it will survive. If not, we'll just plant some zinnias in it.
I love my gift - it even has a hole in the bottom for the water to drain out from!
It's going to be an extra-special Mother's Day for all of us. My gift to her is breakfast: I am making her favorite food, idlis! The batter has already risen and is threatening to overflow. I couldn't be happier!
I hope all of you have a wonderful day!
