Mother’s Day

mother's dayFor Mother’s Day we went to visit my grandmother for a bit. She’s struggled since my grandfathers passing October 2013. We rarely get her out of bed so it was nice to see her up and about and eating breakfast while we were there. My mother fixed her hair since my granny had a doctors appointment the next day.

I watched them and snapped pictures of random things in the kitchen while I talked to my cousin and aunt. After that I left with my mother and changed clothes so I could plant some flowers for her. She’s been dealing with some back/hip issues and can’t squat or get on the ground right now. I planted some impatients and a couple of other flowers for her.

The field across the street from the house was being prepped to plant. They stood in that same spot talking for so long I had time to run and grab my camera, change out lenses and take half a dozen photos before getting the shot I wanted. Later we saw them pull away and big trucks pull up. I’m curious to see what they plant this year. It usually alternates between cotton and soy bean.

One of my favorite parts of spring/summer is grilling. There’s been a few late evenings of planting the garden recently and I can’t wait to get some of those veggies harvested. My mother picked out herbs to plant too. I’m looking forward to all of the fresh goodness.

Do you plant a garden? What do you usually plant?
