    This is so true. Our children grow and bloom and are far better than we even imagine they can be. Then we have grandchildren and it just keeps on multiplying. When they were little we certainly had a few doubts that they would even make it,lol! I love your concept of using a flower garden.

      I’m so glad you enjoyed this one, Marlene! I had fun writing it;)

  2. What a beautiful post! Being an empty nester, I took this post to heart. The time ticks away too quickly and the next thing you know they have their own full lives and your left staring at an empty room. Motherhood really is like tending to a beautiful garden. Thank you for the reminder.

    1. Thanks for your heartfelt comment, Marie.:) It’s hard to realize when you’re in the thick of toddlers & schoolagers, but the years do go by so fast. Drink it up and enjoy!

  3. Your gardens are just beautiful, Lora, as are your thoughts on growing things–gardens and children 🙂 Thanks for sharing your posts with us at Vintage Charm!
