I can't seem to quit taking pics of the beautiful
flowers and trees this Spring. This tree,
which I think is a Kwanzan Cherry, was seen
at Menard's the other day. I just happened to have
my camera in the car and was parked close to it,
so I snapped a shot. I'd like to have a couple
of these in my yard.
The Dogwoods are a favorite, too. I'd also
like to have one or two of these.
My tulips somehow got tilled up one year.
I made the mistake of planting them at the edge
of the garden. I won't name names, but he
didn't remember they were there. I miss them.
This little Lavender pot was my grandmother's.
I have several pieces that belonged to her.
This is one of my favorites. The stamp on the
bottom says Prussia, I don't know how old it is.
It may not be very valuable, but I love it.
I don't think I've said much about my maternal
grandmother in my blog before. She was a sweet
lady and I loved to visit her. I wish I had her
green thumb. She loved to garden and was
quite good at it. I thought of her when I was
picking a bouquet of lilacs yesterday at the
edge of the garden.
The scent of lilacs in our yard is just heavenly
this year. The scent takes me back many,
many years. I can remember playing under
a huge lilac by our house on the farm.
Do you have a favorite scent that makes
you think of someone or of your childhood?
Until next time...
