Mother's Day Flower Pot

kirkus(5a)May 20, 2010

Our oldest daughter gave Carol these flowers for Mother's Day. She got them at Costco! They sure are pretty. I planted them up for Carol.

The wood pot was in the FREE pile at a garage sale awhile back. I added some of the rock eggs I shared awhile back. (Carol gave them to me for Christmas.) I also tucked in a dollar bear from a garage sale. The sign is on slate. It came from a very craetive parent helper. I've had it for years. Just wanted to share a Mother's Day flower pot! :o) Bear Hugs! Kirk

The gerberas are so pretty, and look nice in the wooden pot. I have an old one like that, and will be sorry
to see it go eventually. You did a fine job with planting.

I bought some Gerbers recently as well...1 gal 4.99 at Rite Aid...and they were huge. Going to plant them in mom's yard as well. I love the flower arrangement, it all came together so cute. I love the $dollar bear peeking out over the blooms...that's my favorite part. I love bears!

It's awsome Kirk. You and your oldest daughter did a great job on the Mother's Day pot...You in the potting and her in the flower picks. I love the rock eggs and the bear peeking over the plants. I'm sure Carol loved it.

Lucky Carol! That is so pretty! You daughter picked some gorgeous spring colors that really stand out against the weathered wooden pot, stone eggs and cute little bear. Love the addition of the sign too. Great job you two!

That turned out great, Kirk. I know Carol loves it. Nice of oldest DD to bring her the pretty flowers, but you worked the 'magic' with them.

hugs, Karen
