I have to admire the patience of people who can stand gardening. I always found it to be an annoying hassle to deal with the weeds and all that.

Stop the presses, for the first time ever, I agree with PT.

this is a gorgeous photo- hope you share your painting of them with us! And their garden is lovely- I bet it had a heady fragrance- not of skunk but all those flowers! Cheers!

What a lovely way to spend an afternoon, friends, beautiful environs and BBQ. I'd say that your friendship is what has your friends taking an interest in your Mom.....that's special.

While i can't grow things to save my skin, i tremendously admire those who can. Your friends are artists with living plants.

Beautiful gardens are part of the richness of life. Tina's is amazing~

I always admire someone with a beautiful garden. I quite like doing it myself, but just manual stuff like cutting the grass and hedges and weeding. That's about my limit though. I hope to see your painting in the future.

No wonder people don't visit me at The Little House On The Swamp. Besides the swamp, I have nothing to look at besides dog poop. Love, Janie

Forget the thumb. Tina has a green arm.

I envy people who can make things grow. One of my friends enjoys gardening so much, he grows tons of tomatoes. He doesn't like to eat tomatoes, he enjoys giving them away.

I'm always envious at beautiful gardens. That is even though I know I don't have any kind of a knack for it. Sometimes things grow on their own though, without help. that's what keeps me going with gardening. :)

Boy they sure do have a knack for growing things. I'd venture to guess that what your mother did to deserve her bouquets, was to birth a fine son who became a good friend to these gardeners.

Seeds from Monet's garden?? Wow what a treasure. I am a gardener but prefer the edible plants. Not as pretty but filling.

It is nice to see how others plant and arrange plants. Always gives me new ideas.

Your friends certainly do have a touch for raising flowers. To each his own when it comes to liking what we do. I like gardening but I can accept those people who don't like gardening.

Hey, what happened to my invite? Don't tell me it must have got lost in the mail. I get told that all of the time. Anyway, if you missed my reply to you about The Muppet TV Show, below is a link to an episode you might enjoy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LU1zkKnCkeY

The only plant life I can grow are beards on my bread and cottage cheese. So, I admire someone who can actually coax beauty from seeds.

I agree, very vibrant flowers, very colorful photos. As for me, I spend minutes in my garden ... and it shows.
By: Tom Sightings on May 28, 2014
Absolutely beautiful. I can't wait to see your painting.
By: Carrie on May 28, 2014
Those are gorgeous. I hope you'll show us the painting when you're done.

Good friends are a great blessing, gifted good friends are an even greater blessing. Sweet they think about your Mom too!

Put me on the list of people who want to see the painting of that gorgeous bouquet.
By: Diane Laney Fitzpatrick on May 29, 2014
I would love to see Tina's gardens. I am surprised to see things blooming already. Not much is blooming here yet.
By: Cheryl P. on May 29, 2014
It would have been a disaster if the skunks left their scent. It can be overwhelming. Look forward to seeing more of your artwork... in the coming *days*.
By: Daniel LaFrance on May 29, 2014
What beautiful blooms!!! I wish I had the talent and patience to do that! ~shoes~
By: redshoes51 on May 29, 2014
I have a brown thumb and could never do what Tina and her husband do. Plus, flowering plants make me nervous as they attract bees. I'm just wimpy when it comes to being outdoorsy. I'll stay inside in the A/C please. :)
By: Lexa Cain on May 29, 2014
Oh to have a green thumb! I can only grow plants that don't need any attention and thrive on their own. Tina has a lovely garden- ix-nay on the skunks.

That garden looks heavenly.

Lovely! I hope you do paint the bouquet.
