Friday Flowers: Memories of Grandma's Garden
In 1984, Grandma shocked me with the news that she was selling the house and moving to a condominium. She was only 88 years old! I was busy with our two year old twins and hadn't noticed her getting older and struggling to keep up the big property. Before she moved, she made sure I had several boxes of plants from her garden.
Iris, Pulmonaria, Peony, Coral Bells, Lily of the Valley, Evening Primrose, Trillium, ferns, and more...
We moved to another house in June 1987 and I moved the plants to the new garden where they still bloom every season. Each spring and summer I enjoy the flowers and remember Grandma's garden. I still have her old watering cans and use them to water my potted plants and tomatoes.
Flowers, like memories, can last forever.
