My mother died shortly after her 90th birthday but I made this card with her in mind. Mom was a florist for over 40 years and she taught me many gardening rules in an attempt to remove the curse of the black thumb from my hand. She firmly believed it was necessary to talk to plants to encourage them to grow. Mom taught me to always say “now grow damn it” to newly planted flowers.
Mom loved pansies and she addressed each one as “sweet little monkey face”. Today, in her memory, I share with you a cute little girl (not me, probably my cousin) surrounded by sweet little monkey faces.
To mothers everywhere, have a wonderful Mother's Day.
