her name was Henrietta

Every autumn I gather different photos for my annual hommage to my mother's love of asters. . .a bittersweet project for sure.
These from Minnesota, Wisconsin and Illinois would have made her smile.

Pick more flowers at Luiz Santilli's Today's Flowers meme -- a perfect way to start the week!

The love of gardening is a seed once sown that never dies.

These are beautiful and your Mother is smiling. Every time I see Cala Lilies I think of my Mum. They were her favorite flower. Thank you for sharing these lovely photos, and thank you also for stopping by. Have a great week.
