Today's post is titled Flower Power-I'm going to twist it up and make it The Power of Flowers!
My mother was an avid gardener, then she broke her hip, and ended up with 2 hip replacements. She cannot care for her yard and flowers any longer. Mom became very sad much of the time, there are other things she has had to give up as well that brought her joy. I am no gardener, but I have made some feeble attempts at bringing her some smiles with a flower or two. A year and a half ago I attempted to start some dahlias from seed. These did not do to well the first year and were rather ignored during the winter, on the back porch with no water or food. Imagine my mother's joy when suddenly this summer she got this blossom.
the yard you see her looking at in the first photo was a disaster area for many years of her residence there. Suddenly the place sold. The new owner pulled out "those disgusting bushes", filled the yard with wild flowers and roses. I am still hearing how glad she is that "Gloria" did something with that yard. She smiles when she looks out the window.
the rest of these flowers are found around her home at different times of the year, I must add first though that the Iris plants are her pride and joy and Violets are her favorite.
2nd favorite flower.
