My Mom’s Flowers

My Mother has wonderful flower beds and flowers in containers.  I stopped by there one day this week when it was cloudy and got some great photos.  Love those cloudy days for flower photos!

Here are just a few of her flowers.

They have five gallon buckets that are situated to collect rain water so the flowers are all pampered.  No cold straight out of the hose water for these plants.
