Gardening

My sister’s plants are the best. They are just special. Of course she takes after Mama. She loved plants and flowers of all shapes and colors.

Ros’s plants.

Mama spent a lot of time gardening and investing in many pots that would nurture and separate the beautiful hands of nature. I marvel at the beauty of plants and how they grow to birth such colorful flowers.

Ros is doing the same as Mama, spending time at flower stalls and talking about and selecting the variety of tropical flowers that bloom all year round.

Now she wants to make it her work, tending them for others to enjoy. Visiting their homes and recreating a wealth of color. Is it nature or nurture? I am not sure, but I believe there is something that draws us to enjoy what we have experienced and sometimes even replicate it!


Here we go again!

  2. Your slice is a lovely celebration of your sister and mom and gardening. My sister is a gardener too. She is more into vegetables and herbs. Flower beds are for mom. I don't have a green thumb. I am the admirer.
