I love pink flowers, but I also purchased and planted these because a portion of the proceeds gets donated to 'Susan G. Komen For The Cure'. The flower on the bottom is the "Allure Light Pink Zonal Geranium" and the flower on the top is the "Dahlietta Louise (Rose & White) Dahlia". Lowe's sells these if you're interested.
My mother is a two-time breast cancer survivor, so I have a personal interest in supporting the cause. She's a petite little woman, but has been tough enough to win this battle and will be 84 years old this August.
We have a pretty typical mother/daughter relationship, i.e. we don't always get along so swell. After Dad died, my son mentioned that maybe Grandma and I should live together like in the Golden Girls (which was one of his favorite shows when he was very little). My first reaction was "you're joking, right?" An arrangement like that would drive both of us completely mad. (crazy-mad not angry-mad) She has a much more active social life than I do, and I enjoy solitude when I get home. I like my steak juicy, and she eats hers crispy. We are almost complete opposites in most aspects. But alike in that we both read a lot, like funny movies and have a love of education and the classroom.
Ah yes... I hope I'm not the only daughter who has a difficult time defining a mother/daughter relationship. It is what it is.
