When you walk into a room that has fresh flowers you feel invigorated, alive, refreshed. Does your Mom like to bring the outdoors in with beautiful cut flowers? For a friend of mine, cut flowers on her dinning room table and on her nightstand spell “love and beauty.”
Is the outdoors or garden your Mom’s cup of tea?
My friends idea of heaven is being outdoors. We sat under the criss-cross patio cover on her new wicker patio furniture (thick comfy cushions, you can melt into). I noticed all the detail and love she has poured into her garden. Lush green ground cover with ceramic colored butterflies, mushrooms and ladybugs. Two huge pots with birds of paradise adorn each side of the patio. When the kids were small she said, it was a sandbox and gym set. As they grew we replaced it with a ping-pong table and volleyball pole. As they got older, we replaced that with a table, chairs, umbrella and fire pit.
