    Beautiful, but what does it have to do with quilting? This caption says pictures of quilts.

    Absolutely beautiful! So glad you posted the pictures. This time of year, because of such short growing seasons in Wisconsin, I have to choose gardening over quitling, or at least share the time.

    I think flower gardening and quilting have a lot in common. Mixing and matching colors, enjoying the creative process as well as the finished product, and shopping at quilt stores and gardenening centers can take hours, just appreciating and longing.

    So I love sunny days when I can garden, and rainy days so I can sew.

    How many of you quilters are also gardeners?

    Tell Mom she has a beautiful yard. Out here you're lucky to grow anything.

    Her gardens are very pretty. I have a large one on my front
    lawn and a smaller one across the driveway on more of our lawn. Remember, I live on a farm so I have lots of space to plant flowers and shrubs.

    Nice garden, I keep trying every year to try and grow flowers, just don't have a knack for it. Envy your mom for such a peaceful place to sit and relax, and to enjoy the work she has done.

    When I saw your mom's garden, and I saw your avatar of the little one, I had to post. When my kids were little, they sort of were careful of Mom's flowers, because I included them in 'gardening.' Part of that was planting things they could relate to.
    I remember planting Iris Pallida. It had varegated leaves, and a distintive perfume that smelled exactly like grape Koolaid!
    It's a very old iris, it's proabably for sale somewhere, I bet some of her friends might even have one to share. Come to think of it, maybe she already has one!

    Love your mom's garden, and she is a gal after my own heart. I love flowers, and she has two of my favorites, iris and poppies. People who garden and people who quilt have great souls, don't they? Glad you still have your mom. Cherish her and enjoy her love.
