In summer, I need a machete to get to her front door.

As soon as Spring decides to consistently grace this area, I will help her out with her garden! She has a major green thumb, unlike me -- but I'm learning! Her garden is blooming like clockwork. She has many beautiful flowers all over her yard, and in the back she has fruit trees, berries, melon, various tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, pattypan, zucchini, opo, chives, peppermint, spearmint...and the list goes on!

And of course, she has several houseplants to get her gardening fix during the unforgiving winter weather. Hopefully I will be able to present her with her own little succulent. I know she would love that!

And now, some more pics of Mom's garden from the past few years! Enjoy~
