Tour of Dot's Spring Garden Part One: Red

Dot is my mama. I love her dearly and she can grow anything. Her yard work is her pleasure, and she can outwork me in the yard any day. I wish I had her energy and she is twenty years older.  As long as I can remember she has always taken we children around the yard on a tour. There is a show that we have on SCETV called Making It Grow that she has loved from it's very beginning.

We knew even as grown children that when that show was on to be especially quiet.  We of course being young talked and laughed we were so bad just to get her attention.. We did hush after a short while.  Little did I know that as we became older we also would love to garden and enjoy that show.
Her yard is so full that I took 149 photos in one morning so we are having a series of Dot's Flowers...
First in the series is Dot's Red Flower Garden.  Are you ready to take the tour? 

Happy Mother's Day Mama
 I love you!
