A Mother's Day Garden

What do you usually give your mom for Mothers Day? Roses? A cookbook? This year for Mothers Day why not give your mom something besides roses? A planting of coneflowers and lemon mint will brighten her day AND tell her how much she means to you. Coneflowers come in many colors these days - purple, yellow, orange, rusty red, bright red, and pink. Pick her favorite. Lemon mint has a wonderful scent when crushed and as an added bonus makes a great tea when steeped for 10 minutes in boiling water. In the Victorian Language of Flowers these flowers meant:

Coneflower (Echinacea) - Skill, Capability

Lemon Mint - Virtue, Homeyness, Cheerfulness
