One of the things I had to give up was my garden.

“Oh Patricia, I love flowers. That is one of the things I had to give up when I came to live here. I have two sons that live in the area and sometimes they bring me flowers. But it is not the same as watching your own wild morning glories blooming in the woods near your house. I haven’t the words to describe how happy I feel that I am getting these flowers today. They remind me a little of romance. This is just so unexpected. So it is Flower Day. I never really heard of that day.

Are they from your own garden? Spring flowers, summer flowers, fall flowers…..I love them all. I loved to plant, rake and hoe. I loved preparing the ground for my summer garden; getting the soil ready for fruit, vegetables and flowers. I felt a lot of pride with the things that I grew in my garden.


It is so good for me to go a’flowering each morning although I have never even planted a seed in my life.
