Flowers for my Mom

As I was pottering around my garden today I had the sweetest childhood memory of being a very young child (must have been before school-going age), picking flowers and giving them to my Mom which always made her smile. And so it is today, my lovely, supportive Mom is probably my gardens’ biggest fan and often I catch myself thinking “Mami will love this!” when I spot a new flower in the garden or find a lovely plant at a nursery. A lot of what I plant is in anticipation of the joy I know it brings to her when she reads this blog, all the way in Germany!

So today’s floral show is just for you Mami! Thank you for all your love and support and mostly, thank you for being my Mom!

First the Tulips I picked for you …

All my love

Dominated by large trees on a medium sized property, my garden is very shaded. With no “full sun” areas I have to plant shade and partial shade loving plants. I love shrubs and flowers including camellias and azaleas but Roses and Irises are my favourite and getting these to thrive is a challenge …

What a special post to your mom xx I can’t wait to see her again in November. It has been a long time.

Wish your mom a great day for me. Moms everywhere need to have some joy like this in their life, and flowers say JOY. What s sweet daughter you are!

This story reminded me of when I was a child and I presented my Mum with a “big bouquet” of flowers that I cut from her garden without permission. She was not happy.
However, your e-bouquet for your Mami is beautiful.

What a sweet post. I’m sure your mom will be thrilled to see the flowers you picked for her. I think the love of flowers is one of the greatest treasures my mother passed down to me. Today we call each other on the phone (from opposite sides of the country) and compare notes on our latest gardening adventures.

Hello, Marguerite! Yes, you are right, I was absolutely thrilled and loved all the flowers my wonderful daughter picked for me! As I have only got a balcony in the city of Munich I visit her garden via her blog every day – enjoying every single flower there, the beautiful foliage, the lovely trees and even the grass sods. And: She has a sofa there, too – for me to put up my feet on when I visit her in November! 🙂

Thank you so much for dedicating this post to me, my lovely daughter, and for all those beautiful flowers you picked for me!
Big big smile 🙂
Deine Mami
