The Willow trees are out and as I passed one yesterday
I thought about the one from my childhood.
My neighbor Lola, who was like my Grandmother had one.
I use to just go sit under it.
I wish I had a picture but I don't.
But it is a happy memory.
Do you have a memory of a tree from your childhood.
I am ready for spring
here is my Mom and Lola and our shared cat Bomber
Do you see all her flowers?
She worked out in the garden night and day even in her 90's.
I learned alot about flowers from her.
As I look to the left of this picture the Willow is there.
Look at Lola's corn crop!
The tomato plants are in our yard that Mom and Grandma are checking out,
do you see peering out from around Grandma?
My Mom grew up in Detroit and they lived in a apartment.
When they moved back home in 1939 they always rented so my Grandparents did not have flowers.s.
My Mom loved our yard and she still took care of it by herself until she died.
Lola gave us starts of Lilac's, peonies, surprise lilies and more.
Luckily I was smart enough to bring a start of the peonies when I bought my house 20 years ago, so I have a piece of Lola here.
I went to the flea market with my Brother and SIL last weekend had a great time.
So thinking of those blooms I picked up 3 little pottery vases for $10.
I think the 3 will hold some of those pretty flowers that will be in my yard this spring and summer.
Maybe I need to plant a willow in my backyard to dream under?
