For me, Mother's Day has very often been about gardening. In Iowa it was a great time to set plants, both perennial and annual, and mess around in the dirt. This year saw a return to the garden, this time of a tropical variety. In addition to the mango festival next store, a couple of nurseries set up their wares, and for very few coins I was able to amass a lovely array of tropical exotic flora. Enjoy the show.
