I must prepare you for the pictures you are about to see. THIS is what I grew up with, and THIS is the expectation I have for my flowers. Needless to say, I fail miserably. My mom knows what she's doing with flowers, and I am just showing you a sampling of what she put in her containers this year. Every year it's different, and every year it's gorgeous.
Me: What in the world is that purple thing sticking up in that planter?
Mom: Huh...I don't even know. I just stuck it in there, and it did great didn't it?
Me: Of course.
What I love about my mom's eye for all things beautiful is that everywhere you look, you find some little trinket or ceramic creature among the flowers. She inspired me to buy a little frog today. It will never look as cute as her's, but it's worth the try right?Well, I hope you enjoyed the tour. I think she enjoyed the photographic attention today, so make sure to say nice things for her! Who am I kidding, I know you will.
I'll be back tomorrow--even if it is a holiday--to catch up for being gone. Happy 4th!
