Flowers I Got Before Mother’s Day Weekend 2016

After a long bizarre winter and a cooler start to Spring, it is finally starting to warm up around here.

I decided it was time to plant some flowers around my home and make it feel more Spring-y. I think they just add more life and beauty to one’s home.

You don’t have to have a full garden to make it feel that way either. Just a little flower plant here and there and you’ve got yourself a mini garden.

I like to add one plant in front of my home, so when I drive up my driveway I’m greeted by them.

Another inside my home to give me the impression of life, growth, and serenity.

Lastly, a third flower plant in the backyard, so my family and I enjoy the beauty of these beautiful flowers when we get to eat our meals on our deck.

I am just grateful that this year we will get to enjoy a little more peace with family.

Last year around this time was a terror when it came to our home. From a backed-up main water pipe to a flooded basement both not related. This will be a topic for another day.

For now, let us take in all this wonderful beauty. And HEY! I finally got flowers to fill this Welcome basket.

I hope you enjoyed this post and inspired you to get your own mini garden. Even if it is as little as a succulent plant. And if you already have a master garden, then that is great! Either way, I’m glad you stopped by to read my little blog:).

  1. I love your flowers,so pretty. I love the Succulent flowers. My kids and I planted some flowers and a jasmine plant for mothers day. We also got a peach, lemon and a orange tree. We had growing peaches but the birds are enjoying them. 🙂 we were able to save two, so we could try them. Thanks for sharing you beautiful flowers! 🙂


    1. Wow that’s awesome! I love those trees. No need to go to the grocery store for some of the fruit😉. Those birds though. Must have been some delicious peaches. Luckily you did save some to savor them.
      Now that is what I call a happy Mother’s Day! Your time with your children and planting some beautiful flowers and creating a garden together😊 I’m so happy for you. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. I always enjoy them☺️.
