Planting day

Mom and I celebrated Mother's Day in the garden again this year. I took a trunkload of plants and pots out to her house and we enjoyed the beautiful weather and her beautiful yard while potting up lots of flowers.

We start with pinecones for drainage. Mom has lots of resident squirrels and they very kindly pile the pinecones up in whatever pots Mom leaves sitting out. So helpful!

Here's one of the garden helpers getting a drink from a garden fountain.

Here's another garden helper.

Here's mom busy potting impatiens.

Here's mom's handiwork for the day.

And here's mine.

We made grilled garlic and lime marinated chicken, salad with homemade croutons and freshly baked french bread for dinner. And cherry cheese cake for dessert. It was an all-around excellent day.

Wait...I know so little about gardening! How do you use the pinecones for drainage?
