Mom's Flowers still bloom
Mom and Dad always loved flowers and something was always in bloom at their house. Daddy had such a green thumb...everything he touched would flourish!
Last year, as these Jonquils and Hyacinths began to languish in their pots on Mom's little terrace, she asked my sister Wanda to take them home and plant them.
Wanda took them to her home last Spring, and planted them by her stone wall. As the Spring sun began to warm the ground this year, they came to life with blossoms just as lovely as the ones Mom had enjoyed last Spring.
After losing Mom this year, it's good to see her flowers flourishing! Mom would be so pleased to see them!
Dad's Calla lillies and Mom's Tiffany Rose bush were also transplanted from her home, to mine, and then to Tiffany's, so hopefully June will bring blooms from those much loved plants also. Some things just keep on living and giving.......
Thanks Wanda and Stuart, for sending these photos to brighten our days!
