The picture above is one that Mom took of our kitty, Frosty, in her garden. He's walking on top of the vine covered garden fence. I think I remember her saying that the pretty flowering bush was an aster. It was huge. If it isn't an aster, then my memory is faulty. Mom really knew her plants, trees, and flowers. The picture was taken in the late 1960's.
Mom always had a great garden. She grew all kinds of flowers, tomatoes, radishes, lettuce, and squash. I wince when I remember being a smart mouth pre-teen and asking her if she had "played" in her garden all day. When her big garden became too much for her, she grew beautiful hanging baskets of flowers. She enjoyed taking pictures, and considering that she was using what I believe was called a Brownie box camera, and then a Kodak Instamatic for the last several years of her life, I think she got some very good images.

So these are some of the people, places, and things that I have been feeling nostalgic for on this soft spring evening.
Oh Mom, it's springtime! It's time to "play" in the garden again.
