Sharing Garden Flowers

I will call this a friendship tip. My aunt is home bound after being in the hospital and nursing home after several falls. No broken bones thank goodness. She loves to come to see my flowers once each spring or summer. I reported to her how lovely they are this year and took her a bouquet. She really loved the flowers.


Last year before the flowers bloomed I went around to every bush, scrub, plant and tree and took pictures of the different color and texture of foliage in my garden. Then as things opened and bloomed, I snapped pictures of the beautiful flowers. And as all of us gardeners know, each flower has it's own time to be the perfect bloom. Wouldn't it be a great idea to show these to someone, such as my aunt, who really loves flowers, on a digital picture frame set up as a slide show?

They could see all the plants as they progress throughout the year. If someone is unable to get out of the car and walk around the yard they can still see the pictures of flowers, trees and scrubs as they bloom. You could buy the cheaper memory cards and let them keep one while you are using the other one to snap more pictures. Simply mail or take the new card with new pictures on it and exchange them.

It's a wonderful idea which could be adapted to using photos from something like Google images if you don't have access to your own pictures.

I am doing this for my mom who has a little bit of trouble seeing the morning glories I grow on the fence for her...she waits for them every year! She likes storm pictures too! I am including one of them here.

What a beautiful thing that you are doing!

Thank you so much for the love and care you have shared with this tip!

The world does need more people like you!

Thank you Little Suzy.

I mean this is what it is all about. Not material things that can bring debt but creating those special moments that can be shared again and again and again.

Thank you.

Thanks Suzy! When I read yer tip, I thought 'I need to go tell Little Suzy how cool she is!" I guess I don't need to tell you what a kind and thoughtful niece you are! It seems a lot of other folks think so too! Your aunt is very lucky! Thank you for the tip! Now I'm off to take my Mom some "flowers". :-D
