This is one of the various images I took from Mom's garden. She loves to plant and nurture them. I like to take pictures of the end results. Flowers can be impressive, and I dunno if I can take care of them with the passion they need. Maybe one houseplant to start off first, then develop a taste for more.
It's good to see them grow, but it's sad when it gets so cold, you can't really do much but cover them, and hope the frost doesn't kill them. Such is nature.
