In Search of Mother’s Garden

This seed packet, written in my Mother’s handwriting, was found in her things after her passing.


I planted them, and to my delight, they bloomed in her birthday month! A beautiful ruby red flower- which is also the color of her birthstone.


I pressed the flowers in to a book to make a keepsake. Later, I heard a whisper “Add them to your painting…”



So I got to work adding the beauty to my painting. I didn’t just paint the flower on there, I literally put the real flower in the painting! (I used a technique called decopage- I’ll tell you more about that another time.) I’d already started on it, but it wasn’t finished yet. Now it’s finished. Now it is complete. Amazing Wonders do exist!
