My Mother's Garden
We were quite a team. I had lower back pain and couldn't bend over. Mom had a sore hip and ankle and couldn't get around as well as usual. We played on our strengths as we planted, deadheaded, watered, weeded, and moved plants.
Every time I drive up to my childhood home I am in awe of the beauty Mom has created in the front of the house. Her plants are lush and healthy. Everything grows twice as tall at her house.
Then when I move to the back it is the same thing. We gave her this rose as a small plant a few years ago. Amazing how much it has grown.
I never get tired of the wide sky, sunlit morning, fresh air, and the scent of flowers.
