My mother has a love for gardening and she’s pretty good at it, check out the tour of her garden last season.
She always keeps flowers in her house during the spring and summer it is usuallyÂ perennials from her own garden and in the cold months its usually flowers she buys at the Fresh Market and she never passes up an affordable orchid at IKEA.
I was over having lunch this weekÂ and she told me I couldn’t leave withoutÂ going in to the living roomÂ to look at the bouquet ofÂ wild purpleÂ milkweed (Asclepias purpurascens) she brought back from the NC mountains.
Not only was it pretty but it smelled quite good. Although itsÂ common in Illinois, its doing pretty well growing wildÂ in the NC mountains.
She also had this bouquet of black eyed susans and crocosmia sitting in the kitchen at the entry.
Thanks for playing,
And now a quick word from our sponsors!
