My Mother’s Day Tradition started a few years ago and a little accidentally. Like most moms, all I really want for Mother’s Day is to hang out with my family. But once my kids were out of preschool, they really wanted to get me something and they wanted me to love it.
So, I had the babysitter take the kids to a local nursery to buy me some annuals for the garden. They were excited to show me the plants they picked and I knew I would thoroughly enjoy spending time with them in the garden. It was such a perfect gift, I plan for it every year.

Mother’s Day 2013 – the annuals will wrap around the base of the whiskey barrels that flank the East Patio. This year I requested a red, white, and blue (or purple theme) along with one spiller plant. They did a great job and we had just enough to wrap around both spirals.
