As I wrote at SandwichINK, our autumn garden landscaping plans and designs for my senior mom's gardening projects have been cut in half due to her continuing to recuperate coupled with unexpected caregiving needs for another family member.
We opted to skip the hydrangeas and hollies for this year, and the last sunflower blossom from the Sunflower House is withering on the stalk, but she is delighting in the lovely colors of her new fall mums and winter pansies! From rich browns, to deep violets, and even a hint of pink here and there, it's a gorgeous calvacade of color in our back yard and the Kentucky Northern Red Cardinal birds, squirrels, and bunny rabbits are enjoying them with her. 🙂
My senior mom and I can't wait to show off these pretty posies to the grandkids. They love to see the various gardening projects she is working on!
For more fun flowers and great landscaping designs, be sure to visit Fertilize and Flaunt Your Flowers Friday. And for all things pink-ly intriguing, head on over to Beverly's Pink Saturday. Lots of fun for all of us in the Sandwich Generation as we care for our own real estate while caring for elderly parents and grandkids and often even helping with THEIR real estate needs. 🙂
P.S. Beverly wrote to let us know that in October, all Pink Saturday posts are dedicated to Breast Cancer Awareness. And, as she put it, she prays daily for a cure to all cancers! What an awesome goal. Over the course of my life, I've lost so many precious loved ones to a variety of cancers and am currently praying for several friends – near and far – who are dealing with this disease in one form or another. So, to join with Pink Saturday's Pink Ribbon Breast Cancer (and all cancer) Awareness, I found this cute little frog from Trina's fun clipart to help us remember to pray for a cure for all cancers as we FROG: Fully Rely On God
