Let the Love Continue.

So we continue to fill my mothers room with daffodil love. Janet,my sister and Ben,my brother went out to our property in Brown County and picked masses of the daffodils that our mom and dad have planted over the years.





Then took them over to Greentree. This is where mom has so happily lived with her cat Burky for the last 8 years or so. What a great place this has been for mom.

She loved to give all the tables a vase full of her yellow love. So Janet and I have vowed to continue to carry on this tradition.

My Mom

So what do you do when you know you are losing your soul mate , your best friend and in my case my Mom. Today my 95 year old Mom was moved to hospice. This is a blessing. I want my Mom at peace but I still cry over her physical presence soon leaving me

I know every time I walk in my gardens see all the daffodils, she is there. She gave me the love of gardening. She blessed me with her gift of writing and her gift of loving life.

I will miss her so deeply when she has moved on to a better place but I know her spirit will be in my soul and heart forever. She is the most amazing person I will ever be blessed to know. She loves her family, her grandkids and great grand kids more than anything

Every time I plant a flower she loved, pass on a big bunch of daffodils or write an article about gardening, I know she is with


me. I am taking these to her tomorrow. She may not be able to acknowledge she sees them but I know she will know how deeply I love her

Why I grow Daffodils

I have had a very sad couple weeks. My beloved 95 year old Mom is critically
Ill. Mom and my father both loved daffodils so this is what I have taken up to the hospital for her.






She cannot talk right now but I pray she can smell and see the beautiful smiling faces of her favorite flower. I love you Mom. My Daffodils are blooming the best they ever have bloomed......just for you and Dad!!

One can never plant too many Daffodils

Wow oh Wow my daffodils are blooming. I have so many varieties that will bless me with blooms until May. I plant new varieties each year. I can't help it it is in my blood. My father and mother planted daffodils every year. I will continue that tradition. Enjoy, they are only beginning to open.

Correcting my Mistake

So not unlike 90% of the USA I feel this has been the worst winter ever!!! There are many task I have not completed. Planting these bulbs was the number 1 task that was not accomplished. They were outside on the bench all winter so they have definitely been exposed to the cold. So here is my approach, I am going to plant them in window boxes and pots. I will transplant the bulbs after they bloom if they do. I will let you know.
