Watering Flowers

I have been watering my Mother's flowers for the past week while she has been away on Vacation. She is hanging out at my favorite beach. Now hanging out for me and hanging out for my Mom are two entirely different things. Me = lounging on the beach, swimming, sunbathing, shopping, food. Mom = shopping, shopping, shopping, shopping. But we both love it equally.

So, back to watering flowers, I thought it would be annoying to spend the hour every day watering her flowers. But, it hasn't been! Yes, I am surprised. To water my garden, I just put on the sprinkler and let it go, but her garden has baskets, and pretty much runs around the perimeter of her yard. And she likes to hand water so she can see what is doing well and what isn't. This past week has been quite rewarding. My little guy has happily helped me shower the beautiful flowers, helped me deadhead and ran around my mothers back yard. As much as I love gardening, I just never really thought how tranquil it is to take the time to water, and enjoy it. So as I plan my new garden for next year, I hope I can remember this past week and plan it so I can spend some time each day caring and nurturing my new garden.

I LOVE gardening/puttering away but for two reasons have had to put that hobby on hold for the past 3 summers. I look forward to getting back to it one day, may even plant some new tulip bulbs this year!

Hey, maybe you need a special little garden for the kids so they can watch their flowers or veggies grow?! I used to do that with our older one, he liked to plant grass :)
