In Mom’s Garden

Mom and I are on a little trip and I have to hustle, so I don’t have a story today. Actually, I’ve been collecting tons of stories for you all, but I haven’t had the time to polish them up.
So I thought you might like to tour Mom’s garden in the meantime.

    That’s ok. A picture is worth a thousand words. Enjoy your time with your mom. It’s summer! Almost.

    Oh how beautiful

    • Hi Joanne–
      The garden is something she loves so much. It’s always so much work, so I like that this way I can share some of the fruits of her labor! πŸ™‚

    I love your mom’s garden especially the poppies. My grandmother grew poppies in her garden.
