My yard and my mothers dreams

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone, i've been in hibernation mode lol but i've been productive. Before my mother became ill with the brain tumor we had huge plans for my yard. My fiance and I built a house and moved in last october so my mom and i have everything planned out for the spring. Unfortuatly she passed on April 25th, but i've kept our "visions" alive.

My back porch is my new serenity. I bought a lovely water fountain, candles, tiki torches lamps etc... And just to let you know i've never planted anything in my life but this is what i've done so far...
White Meadow Phlox (attracts butterflies)
Pink Phlox Paniculata (attacts hummingbirds)
A dark lavender vein trailing petunia (attacts hummingbirds)
Yellow rose bush
Hybrid tea rose (which symbols peace)
Purple Perilla with"superbells red" calibrachoa trailing around it.
Morning Glorys and 4'oclock
Purple crape myrtle tree

So as you see i've been so busy but i love to sit back and look at all the beauty in my yard. I have become to learn that this is very theraputic for me. I also have two bird feeders (which i've become very into birds) and a bird house which have already been the home of some baby blue birds!

I am so happy for you! I bet it is so thrilling and enchanting to sit and enjoy the beautiful scenery you created. I hope it is exactly what you and your mother wanted!

It does make me happy. While she stayed with me during her treatments, my back porch became "her spot"...plus she smoked and i dont...but its very special to me now. It does please me VERY much and i know shes smiling down on me.

Your yard sounds wonderful. You'll enjoy it for many years to come. What a lovely memorial to your mom.

That is just beautiful, Yasmine! I was just thinking about you yesterday, and wondering how you are doing. I'm sure it is still hard, but a living, colorful, memento of your Mom is just great. Thanks for checking in to let us know what you have been up to.

Any chance of posting some pics?!?
