A Posy from my Mother's Garden

My mother said

My garden is a disaster this year

What with the wedding...

and the art exhibition...

and working in the shop...

and the weather...


But it does look pretty from the bathroom window.


*****
I wrote this post last summer
and found it again yesterday.
It makes me smile because
I can hear my mother speaking so clearly.


This sort of memory makes a blog much more than a photo album.

I can see what she means.
Terrible.

looks lovely to me, I'm glad you share your "more than a photo album" with us.

It's true- I think that often as I read over archives. "I'm so glad I wrote this down!"

Your blog is lovely.

Message from me to your Mum, her garden is beautiful, her flowers were perfect, and she is too hard on herself.
Your photographs are stunning, just lovely.

I'm wondering what the garden would be like in a good year...
Lovely photos, lovely post.

Thank you for sharing it with us.

The bathroom window made me smile.
