Happy Birthday Bulbarella





















My dear sweet mother turned 88 today. She still climbs through her mountain top garden planting and weeding on a near daily basis, weathers depending. One of the last things she did before heading south for the winter was plant a box of minor bulbs she forgot she had ordered. This apple didn't fall far from the tree at all. I forget where I plant half the bulbs in my own garden.

Happy Birthday Mom.

We often lose sight of the profound influence our parents' talents and interests have on us. Yours is pretty obvious!

This made me smile thinking how we take after our Moms. Mine left me with other influences, but still valuale to me. Happy Birthday to your Mom!

A very happy birthday to your mother.....I really enjoyed meeting her at the 2014 Master Gardener's Tour. Hope you got to take her up to The Swag.....you would both enjoy the plants, location and history there. It's a "Bucket List" must! ☺
