Today once again we've been blessed with a beautiful cloudy day which started out with a soft drizzle of rain. Outside, I remembered how beautiful my Abuelita's garden always looked, especially after some rain. Two plants which always remind me of her garden:
Gomphrena or 'globe amaranth' always made me happy as a child just looking at the bright cheerful color.
Now if only I can nurture this plant to grow as beautiful as the ones my Abuelita had in her jardin. Just remembering her and the things she loved is enough for me. That is why I always say that I come from a long line of gardeners. I hope my Sons and Grandchildren have inherited this love of all things green.....but sadly I have yet to see any proof of that. But there's always hope. I didn't discover my love for gardening until I was about 22 years old.
Note to self: White Easter lilies like buelita's
Wishing everyone a wonderful week ahead!
