Visiting my Mom in Germany May 2009

My mom is 91 years old and she broke her hip back in April. It was time for me to visit her. She is in a nursing home in Hildesheim, Germany to heal. I thought she would go back to her apartment in about 3 or 4 months, but it was decided that she will stay in this home and give up her apartment in Hannover, Germany. I am not sure if this is the right thing, but it is her decision….I know she already regrets this, but it is done deal now.
Anyway, while visiting her I stayed in Hannover at her apartment and took the train to Hildesheim where the nursing home is. On my way I saw some wild flowers and flowers in the front yards of some homes. Time to take out my G10 and take close-ups. So this series is for you Mom – the Urban Flowerscape.

To start off with my mom’s favorite house plant the Amaryllis, it was in bloom and mom would miss it. This plant blooms for about 8 days and then the plant goes dormant until the next time…..I had a print made for her so she could see how beautiful he bloom is/was.
