    Happy Mother’s Day to all my wonderful readers , I hope it is a lovely day for each and every one of you! This little garden tour is my tribute to mothers everywhere, who often put their own wants and needs aside for those they love. Thank you for rocking the babies through the night, doing your work and chores with little ones at your heels, helping each one feel like the favorite and being the anchor of our families. Without a mother’s love this would be a sad world indeed.

    Have a sweet day doing what you like the most with the ones you love!

    HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY Momala,
    I LOVE YOU and white flowers. I know that you are always there for me. Is that the same for the Lily of the Valley and the White Bleeding Hearts? Are they only spring bloomers or are they spring and summer bloomers?

      Love you back, sweetie-pie! The flowers shown here are perennial spring bloomers. If you want color spring through fall, you’ll have to go to annuals.
