Daily Living Made Easier

Senior gardening is great for physical activities for senior citizensLook at this gorgeous red flower – although my photos do NOT do it justice – not even with my beloved and easy to use digital camera. I first discovered this intriguing velvet-y plant on a walk with my senior mom last October. Two neighborhood houses had it growing in their front yards.

I tried twice to catch the owners at home and ask what it was but never succeeded. When I went back a third time, the plants were gone and I wasn't sure which house I'd spotted them at, so I gave up.

Over the winter, my senior mom was enjoying reading through her Burpee gardening catalogs. She opened one up after getting it in the mailbox and lo and behold, there it was! It's a Red Velvet Celosious and it really does look like it's made of velvet!

AND it showed up at two houses again along with some lovely autumn colored mums. That definitely makes for some fun and physical senior citizen activities for my mom and me – a lovely walk with gorgeous Red Velvet Celosia and other delightful flowers to enjoy.

My senior mom and I love autumn and fall gardening fun - especially fall colored flowers in the garden

By the way, if you are caring for aging parents who get a sad look on their face every time the mailman comes by and does NOT leave them mail, I've found gardening and hobby catalogs, are great. Also magazine subscriptions for birthdays and Christmas make wonderful gifts AND encouragers for the elderly parents and relatives in our family, giving them an enjoyable read AND fun mail all through the month. 🙂

    Oh I saved some seeds from some clippings of a friend, but have never had success growing them. They are truly lucious.

  1. Truly in awe of these beautiful flowers. I love and enjoy any bloom.

    Those hot pink velvet-y flowers are stunning! I’ve never seen anything like those before. You’ve got a nice variety of plants in your area! (Also, thanks for stopping by my blog yesterday!)
