Hanging Baskets

Today is Mother's Day and I would like to wish everyone a very happy day.

When I let Kyora out this morning I found on the front porch my first Mother's Day gift. It was a flat of Marigolds.

Ron has watched while I fought with the many weeds that have taken over my rock garden and how long it takes me to remove them from just a small section of ground.

When I returned from grocery shopping I was greeted by four hanging baskets along the side of the house.

There was a fuchsia, which is one of my favourite plants and the other three were petunias, two were of mixed colours; pink, purple and red and the last one was a rich burgundy.

The nice thing about these flowers is that they attract hummingbirds throughout the summer.

Around suppertime Christine arrived bring Chinese food for supper, which was wonderful as I really didn't feel like going out to eat.

The other thing she brought for me was a beautiful hanging basket of very dark, almost black  pansies.

I moved the fuchsia to the hook by the maple tree at the front of the house and hung her basket on the hook by the kitchen window where I can see it every time I look out the window.
