Oh how I miss talking to my Mom ....especially in the spring.
We spent so much time talking about our flowers, what was coming up, what we needed to move and on and on. She gave me such a love for flowers and it was such a big part of our lives together.
We loved walking through each other's gardens and I sure miss that this beautiful Mother's Day morning. Happy Mother's Day Mom!!!
Last fall I purchased 450 tulip and hyacinth bulbs and planned to get them planted before it turned cold. After reading the instructions which said don't plant until after the first freeze, I waited.
Then my brother got very sick and I left for Arkansas and spent a week there for his funeral. That was the week I could have gotten them in the ground. When I returned home it turned cold and I got extremely busy selling Joan's Gardens. So, before we left for Florida I stuck all the bulbs in the refrigerator for the winter. When I returned home, I called the bulb company to see if I should plant them or wait till fall. I was told to get them in the ground as they would not last till fall.
So, Jon helped me and we planted them,. hoping and praying they would survive. I am so very happy to report they all came up and are either blooming or setting bulbs to bloom. I am in love with them and so thankful for God's beautiful creation of spring flowers. Below are some pictures to let you enjoy them too.
