Happy Mother's Day

 The next best thing, after spending time with family on Mother's Day, is picking out a couple of beautiful baskets at the garden center.  Just a few days ago, our little granddaughter was born, and I thought this arrangement was appropriate for this year's Mother's Day. So pretty.
This basket has more dramatic colours.  It will hold up well because it has a couple of begonias and a couple of New Guinea impatiens in the mix.  I really like lobelia but it is always a bit iffy as the summer progresses.  The other plants, though, will be fine for the whole summer.

 It's hard to find a flower that is this lovely shade of blue.  Some delphiniums are this shade, but delphiniums are tricky to grow, and I have no success with overwintering them. So I will enjoy the annual lobelia.

 Trusty begonias that never get chewed by insect and that bloom even in the shade.

 Happy Mother's Day to all you moms.
