My mom is gone forever from my life but,not my heart!She always said "Give me flowers while I'm alive NOT,when I'm dead then I can't enjoy them"She and I would run out in the Spring and plant tomato,cucumber,lettuce and radish seeds.We would thin,water and cultivate and weed.I always gave her a hard time about the weeding!"I can't see why we cant just buy them in the grocery store"I would complain.Well she would say,they just arent grown from our love and trust.They just dont taste the same!I would huff and puff with secret attitude cause she didnt take no crap!!Every Spring now for 14 years me and my husband plant a garden and wait with excitement for the first tomato,cuke,potatoes,zucchini,onions and peppers to emerge.She was and is right about the flavor they taste so good because we break our butts weeding and watering and WAITING!Plus,I always have to plant her some flowers so she can look over my shoulder and see Im doing exactly what she taught me to.
I always plant her favorites because she was my beautiful mother! SP!!
