Fertilizer Friday! 11/06/09


It's Fertilizer Friday! Where does the week go?
Please join our hostess Tootsie @ Tootsie Time and see everyone's blooms!

This time of the year, holiday time, brings back lots of memories.
Not just of the holidays themselves but of other times with family.
I'm sharing a couple of my Mom's plants this week.
Mom passed a few years ago and I still miss her terribly.
She was a tremendous gardener.
She could stick anything in the ground and it would grow.
She had fantastic gardens.
Two plants come to mind when I think of them.
In the back of the house was a huge Bird of Paradise.

 

When she was alive she kept it trimmed and maintained.
It had the most gorgeous unusual blooms.

 

I am so glad I took these pictures.
The current tenant has cut it down and removed it.
The other plant is a Cecil Brunner Rose.
It is in the front driveway.
When it is in bloom you immediatley smell it when you step out of the car.


It covers itself in pink blooms and is simply amazing!


Thanks for allowing me to take a short walk down Memory Lane.
I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did.
