One of the best things about being a gardener is cut flowers.
(Lotus begonia blooms)
There's always something in bloom that can be brought indoors to enjoy.
And, if there aren't any flowers, there is plenty of interesting foliage that looks pretty in a vase, too.
This year we've got gardenias blooming for Mother's Day.
Every year when I see the first flowers on the bush, I quickly run inside and grab my clippers. The sweet-smelling scent of just a couple of gardenias makes the entire room smell heavenly. They get special treatment at my home...they get to float around in a very pretty china bowl.
Have a great Mother's Day, and I hope each one of you receives some beautiful flowers!
