Every Mother's Day we give each of the ladies at our church a small gift. We have given chocolates, soap, journals, etc., and this year it will be a small plant. Since our climate does not allow for outdoor planting until late May or early June, greenhouse plants are not in bloom yet. I have chosen a variety of colors of impatiens. They will advance quickly, and can be planted out in the garden or used as a house plant. As I was transplanting and wrapping those dozens of plants, I was thinking that it seems a little humorous that we would give our Moms a plant named impatiens!! Most Moms I know have had to develop lots of Patience when bringing up kids, so for today, we'll rename the plant, okay?
