Joyce Tormala helps us usher in the Mother's Day weekend with a colorful burst from a bunch of Primroses. I've always been a fan of flowers, especially the outdoor blooming ones in a flower garden that add early color to our otherwise drab flower gardens in the spring. These little plants are perfect for that job, since they need cooler temperatures at night and prefer days that are not above 80 during the day. Consider this your Mother's Day virtual bouquet!

Those flowers are so pretty. I think I'll plant my dianthus today!

That is a beautiful picture of flowers for Mother's Day weekend! What a great choice, Mary, a great virtual bouquet! Happy Mother's Day to all of the mothers, grandmas, et al!

We learned from experience not to plant any flowers here in mid-Michigan, except maybe the most hardy, like pansies, before Memorial Day weekend, because a frost is possible until then. I do not want to have to get covers for them and have to cover them at night. I suppose that planting some near our house might work now, as that might stay warmer at night? And, of course, we have a frost in our forecast this week. One year our town planted many flats of flowers along a main thoroughfare about the 15th. We had a frost soon after, and about 20 flats of planted flowers died from that frost. They had to purchase more flowers to replace those, and then take the time and effort to plant the new ones. :-(

Thank you for the reminder that it is time to buy flowers, though, before they sell out of the colors, etc, that we want. :-) We keep them in the garage under the boat, at least at night until we plant them.

Happy Mother's Day to all the Moms! I will keep my Mother in my thoughts this weekend as she rejoices in Heaven with our Dear Lord, Jesus.
For all you Moms out there you have provided great memories for your children and they will always cherish them. Have a wonderful weekend with your families. You deserve it!

Good time for flowers, glad we can see them again. I need to look at other peoples since I can't keep anything alive.

Beautiful picture! I love flowers but have to enjoy and appreciate other people's flowers too - having a black thumb myself. Pictures of flowers like this one today make my day!
