Mother’s Day with my Daughter

My beautiful daughter knows me so well and knows that in May I’m thinking about my flower gardens and what to hang on the porches, in the gazebo, in my antique wheelbarrow and anywhere else that I can find a hole to put some spring color!!  The last couple years it’s red and purple and blue and white.  Here’s what she came up with and presented to me for Mother’s Day 2015:

I have two of these in the yard and I can cut them back to a foot tall and by June they’re back full of green, pink and white.  It’s so pretty and covers the ground at the yard entrance with rose petals all summer.
