My Mother's Garden

I love plants-perennials, shrubs, trees, all kinds-they are fascinating!

I have such fond memories of the time spent with my mom in the garden! At a very young age, I remember helping her select and plant flowers, learning the names and preferences of each plant-how much sun, how much water, what type of soil... telling them apart from their leaves, flower, fragrance or form. We would spend hours walking around looking at her garden; identifying each perennial, shrub and tree; marveling at their uniqueness, breathtaking beauty, vibrant colors and their intoxicating fragrance. Collecting and learning about the plants was just as fun! Frequenting Oakland Nursery, Straders, the bottom of the hill where the woodland plants grow (and many other places!); until we found just the gem to add to her garden.  The glorious, lush, garden park that she created is ever so beautiful!! As there are so many different types and species of plants and trees, each week I will spotlight one of them to give as many as I can, their place in the "sun" :).
