My mother always planted red geraniums in her garden every summer. She loved flowers and was a master flower arranger. I’ll always remember how she cared for her garden and delighted in the colorful results. The fabric used for the basket is a felted swatch of overcoat fabric once sold by Hart Schaffner Marx, Chicago tailors for President Obama.
To the memory of my mom, Bunny Hanson. She was the mother of the Hanson Bee Hive – every member of our family has a first name that begins with “B” .
