Gothic Arch Challenge - Mother and Child

We've been given a lovely and gentle theme for this week's Gothic Arch challenge....mother and child. I am always moved when I hear Alison Krauss singing these words from a song called "When You Say Nothing at All". To me they capture the feeling of comfort that children feel when they know that their parents are there to protect them and to pick up the pieces when something happens to them.

Lovely arch Heather so full of sweet emotion, Love the pressed flower bouquet. You have inspired me to press more flowers this gardening season! In fact, I saw someone that altered their flower press which I must do first ;)
