From my Grandmothers' Garden

Although she has long gone my Grandmother will always be remembered not least for the orange blossom,
the iris,

and the peonies

that all grow in my garden.
Once they were in hers now they are in mine.
Flowers from my Grandmothers' garden.
Flowers from my childhood.

  5. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment! Your blooms are's wonderful they came from flowers taken from your grandmothers garden! I wish I could have had my grandmothers lilac bush...and many others from my nana's (my other grandmother!) garden! I still think of them often while I garden. I'm getting a couple of things from my mother's garden when she moves to a new home...those things are always special!

  6. How utterly charming and a beautiful way to remember a special person.
