Gerberas in My Mother's Flower Garden

Gerberas and Hydrangeas
Oil on Canvas

The morning glories in my mother's back yard
have covered her entire fence. They are
climbing over the passion flowers and seem
to take turns with their rivals in a
carefully choreographed blooming rotation.

Her gerberas were enjoying
the morning sun while a pair of painted buntings had
breakfast from her bird feeder nearby.

These purple hydrangeas are from my porch garden
earlier in the summer. It's amazing how such a
delicate looking flower can survive the Texas
heat if given enough shade and water.

Speaking of delicate flowers, here is my
fattygirl assistant AnnieBee, wondering why
on earth they built fences and most
especially why her mama is on the wrong
side of one at this exact moment.
