Flowers for Mom

Almost as fun as a trip to Phipps Conservatory in Pittsburgh, is a trip to McShane's Florist and Greenhouse in Rostraver.

My mom loves flowers, so we decided to take her shopping for a few more pretty plants for the yard. While we were doing this, I snapped some pictures of the offerings.

A gorgeous African Daisy. We bought a redish one for our yard. Posted by Hello

I love striped petunias. Always called them pinwheels.

ALL purrrrrrrdy flowers, but if I had to pick a favorite it'd be the dahlias.
