from the ground up



During my visit home, my parents garden brought continual amazement.  Many of the plants that grow and thrive are quite different than those I can grow, with our  harsh, windy winters.  Many of the plants that adorn their vegetable garden and decorative pots are lovingly brought, from many miles north each spring- from my greenhouse.  It is always a treat to see how things flourish through the growing season.  This year, Wow.  The coleus have come out on top!

They were breathtaking- almost electric. And at least twice as large as my own.

Isnt’ my Mom’s artistry lovely?   It made the whole yard smile.

  2. Both your Mom and Dad have real artistic talent. It is always a joy to spend time with them.
