My mother was a gardener through and through. She was a "plant whisperer" in her very heart of hearts. She not only gardened for necessity but because she loved flowers. A few of her favorites were Gloxinia, African Violets, Peach trees, rhubarb, asparagus, and mint. She also had a big collection of Amarylis.
I wanted to use this picture because it is as I remember her happiest --going and coming from the garden or working in the yard. I didn't remember that she was holding radishes. But...just look at that!!
