We had it all planned for Sunday. Lunch in Tulln after Anna Grace’s riding lesson, then an afternoon walk through the pretty gardens of Tulln an der Donau before cycling home along the river. Except. The Mother’s Day forecast is calling for rain, rain, and more rain, and so the outdoor plan has been shelved.

Today’s weather was sunny and warm, however, so I took myself to the garden. Now I can spend Mother’s Day terrorizing my kitchen while I prepare a four-course meal (and the family cleans up afterward). The day will still be win-win for all of us. Enjoy the garden!
