Mother's Day Flowers

Elaine was most pleased when Merle's Flower Shop delivered a beautiful Mother's Day bouquet this afternoon from Tim's in Columbus, IN. We also did some shopping at Merle's Nursery where we bought Geraniums, Begonias, Marigolds, Straw Flowers and 4 tomato plants. We got most of them planted this evening and will finish tomorrow.  While the Flowers from Tim's are for Elaine, I probably enjoy them as much as she. They are a mixed bouquet with Roses, Daises, Baby's Breath and others that I can't name. I'm sure we will enjoy them for several days plus having a picture of them to  be part of the 2012 collection.  As we went to plant those things that we bought this afternoon, we realized how much our back yard trees have grown that limits areas where plants can get enough sun. I picked out a nice sunny spot where we took out a Snow Ball bush last year only to realize that it is not a good spot for tomato plants because of the location of a lawn sprinkler. We will just have to wait and see how it turns out.
