Its my mothers birthday

My parents live on the countryside ,and that's where we go when it is just too much here in the apartment. They have had their own nursery for 30 years, and after retiring they moved to this wonderful place, and are in the middle of creating a very special and very big garden.....Have to remember to bring lots of tomatoes and cucumber home....


They have a huge knowledge of plants and have a big collection of their own, waiting in containers to be put out in the garden. They are really hardworking people, and now they are creating their own dream garden. My mother is always on to something, and it is even hard to get a picture of her...sometimes she has a little problems with her wrists, but if she keeps them warm they get better.

I made her 1 pair of mittens in angora yarn for the night, and two pairs in black fleece to be used in the garden. Hopefully she likes them and will use them a lot so she can be out there as much as she wants to, also at wintertime...Happy birthday mom....
