Happy Mother's Day!

It's so apt that I start this blog on Mother's Day.

Gardening season traditionally starts during the May long weekend here in Saskatchewan (Canada's Victoria Day, the third weekend of May). My mom always asked for bedding plants for Mother's Day - her favourites were petunias and impatiens.

My beautiful mom is no longer with us - she passed away in November 2005. I just can't stop buying her flowers though. So, my gardening season starts a week earlier than most. I picked up two beautiful fuschia baskets yesterday and hung them up for my mom today.

Many thanks to Miss Deb, from At the Cottage, for the inspiration.
