What I thought would be an easy post turned into waaayyy more reminiscing than I bargained for! So, thanks for that, WP!!
Of course, any garden blogger’s first thoughts of Spring are colorful flowers. I knew I had some pictures of the kids helping me plant some color down at my Grandma’s house. I had forgotten that the pictures I was looking for were now part of a scrapping project that has been an on-again-off-again event, like so many of the projects I have started. But what I hadn’t expected was the trip down memory lane.
This scrapbook page was one of my first, and I’m very proud of it.
I really like using actual developed pictures, although I understand there’s a whole other world of digital scrapping out there. I haven’t tried it yet, but considering the fact that most of my pictures never see the outside of my computer screen, I should probably take it up.
Every spring, for the last 5 years of her life, Grandma had a visit from me and the kids on her birthday – May 29. It was the perfect time to pick up a flat of flowers and decorate the two planters on her porch, then line the walkway with (low maintenance) marigolds. She wasn’t much of a gardener, but she loved flowers. All the neighbors would tell her how lovely it all looked.
That would prompt a proper thank you card and letter from Grandma. Isn’t it really a shame how, not unlike the printed photograph, the days of actually writing a note and placing it in an envelope with postage has pretty much fallen by the wayside.
