A Gift for My Mom's Garden

Thursday, February 16, 2012 Posted by Dina N

My mom is an excellent gardener. For as long as I can remember, her yard has been filled with flowers. She has a vegetable patch, grapes, strawberries, raspberries, cherry trees, pear trees, apple trees, and more. My kids have a blast when they visit Grandma's house and get to pick their own berries, put together a bouquet of flowers, or water the veggies. One of my greatest pleasures is to watch them help her in the garden. Or, when they are still asleep in the morning, to sit in mom's porch swing with a cup of coffee, admiring her roses and thinking of nothing in particular.

This year, I have the perfect gift idea for my mom's birthday. A garden trellis or two would look fantastic in her yard. I love the look of the metal trellises with their elegant lines. I am torn between the Aspen Leaves garden trellises and the Bell Windchime Trellises. Imagine the soft sound of bells gently ringing with the breeze...

Maybe she'd like a vinyl trellis better. I like the Nantucket Vinyl Trellises. Or I could get her the Kensington Planter Trellises for her deck. She could use it for growing climbing flowers or vegetables. Hmmmm, maybe I should let my mom pick her favorites...

    The trellises are beautiful. My grandmother was the one with the green thumb-she had a lovely cottage style garden.

    I think a trellis is a great idea for someone that loves gardening! She can pick out a flower that will climb it and when it blooms it will be beautiful :)
