"Descanso" means rest or restful, and what better way to spend Mother's Day than on a restful visit to the beautiful Descanso Gardens and a walk through the Sunday Farmer's Market in nearby Montrose?
Elsa wasn't the only mother out with her brood, as Daddy Goose keeps lookout while Mom and the chicks take in a leisurely Sunday brunch on the verdant grounds of the gardens.
The flowers, and Miss Natalie, were all a'blooming, in a dizzying array of colors and shapes and smells.
The petals on this one looked like one of Elsa's recent "cut paper" projects!
We've been so buried in the tunnel of our own lives and projects and day-to-day parental responsibilities that it was a great Balm to surrender to Nature's Way. "Descanso" indeed!
Diego: "Mom, today's all about you...so I guess I can stop monkeying around for one day! (But tomorrow, it's back to normal!). Happy Mother's Day.
Natalie: "Mom, there's just one thing standing between you and a completely relaxing, rejuvenating Mother's Day...US!"
