Favourite Things

When Mum was still with us we found vases that were suitable for our bathrooms.

Mum loved gardening and she loved flowers but she was no longer able to garden for herself.

We liked to think that we could bring a little bit of the garden to her and we still try to keep this up to date as much as possible.

It can be difficult towards the end of winter to find something suitable but, for most of the year, we seem to be able to add a touch of difference to our bathrooms.

The dahlias in our garden are doing extremely well this year and these orange ones are blooming in abundance in our front garden.

Nice that there's enough of them to be able to have some indoors as well.

Linking to Mockingbird Hill Cottage Favorite Things - thanks, Claudia.

Good Morning to you, what a lovely tradition, to continue what your mother started. The lovely thing is, when you look at your vase of flowers, you will always smile and think of your mother. Your dahlias are beautiful....so vibrant.
Have a lovely weekend.
Best Wishes
Daphne

How sweet and thoughtful of you to bring in flowers for your momma since she loved them so. I think it is a lovely tradition to continue - there are some things I continue to do, they bring me pleasure and I feel my parents close at hand when I do them.

Gorgeous dahlias!
