My Mom's garden

Tommorro, I'm off to visit my Mom in Holland again, she needs her garden tidied up.
Here are some pics of her little front garden last year, that I had planted. That's my Mom.

I picked up a few river stones from the nearby Maas, and laid them in a path for her to use as stepping stones.

The violas are there because I insisted on putting them in. She usually chooses plants, but I HAD to plant violas! I'll bring my camera and take new pics, and post them when I return.
See you all in two weeks!

Saw on another blog you mentioned you liked Torenia but couldn't find seed. Moles Seeds do small plants I think..

not sure if they deliver to Ireland but worth a look.
Have a great trip.

I can't even imagine a garden in Holland that doesn't grow in bright, pretty rows. Years ago I lived by the North Sea and all of my neighbors had perfect gardens. In fact, when they would chat with me as I passed by their gardens, they would be snipping away. Lucky mom to have such an attentive daughter.
