A mother’s love.
So while this blog has become a bit academic for my Mother’s day intentions, I realize that the hands-on fostering of the natural world my mom instilled in me was one of the big life lessons she bestowed. That her patience in planting this connection to gardening will help me appreciate the importance of a healthy, sustainable environment. And that her love of flowers will continue to connect me to who I am, and my memories of what a lovely person she is (especially when she can no longer easily communicate or express herself).
