Happy Mother's Day 2015

Happy Mother’s Day 
My mother's favorite flowers were Gardenias.  Interesting that the Gardenia blossoms 
would be in full bloom here in our garden on Mother's Day weekend.
Gardenias and Roses from the garden.

A photo of my sweet mother enjoying the beauty of the ocean in South Florida many years ago.

Gardenias and old garden roses make a lovely combination in this Mother's Day arrangement from the garden.  And, the Gardenias spread their sweet fragrance throughout the entire room.

Gardenias have been known to survive in hardiness zone 7, but thrive better in zones  8 to 10.

Wishing you a most wonderful Mother's Day where ever you may be.


  1. Charming photo of your Mom and gorgeous flowers. Happy Mother's Day to you.

  2. So glad you stopped by Sweet Southern Days for a visit. I see you are from Fairhope. My daughter Stephanie lived there several years ago and we enjoyed visiting her there.

    So glad you enjoy Gardenias is very special to see them in the garden this time of year, and the fragrance is heavenly. A very special Happy Mother's Day to you too.
