Garden Girls

My mother and two of my sisters have beautiful lawns and gorgeous plant beds.  It is a passion and talent they learned from my father.  He used to grow palms trees, oak trees and vegetable gardens.  During the summer he expected us to work outside in the family nursery business. It was the last thing I wanted to do during my summers off from school.  I hated being outside watering plants and clearing weeds, so instead I would go inside to prepare drinks and lunch.  Obviously that means I don't have a green-thumb. Now I wish I did.  My sisters are naturally gifted.  They put a lot of time and effort in designing and maintaining their garden. They have a lot of knowledge about what works best in their climate and during different seasons.  My mother does a lot of container gardening at her cottage.  That woman can bring back to life a dead branch...LOL.  God seems to smile down on them and blesses them with beautiful flowers year round.
