I found the nest, egg and mouse skull on our property.

June 08 arches This is my sister's garden in Vermont!  It is a small slice of a HUGE tract.  The arbors are rebar.  Morning glories, roses and whatnot climb up and over them.

new pergola 2 This is the newest addition to the garden.  The columns are repurposed from another structure.  My Adorable Nephew helped with this design. Cocktails anyone?

AJ History 065 This is my mom and Cha-Cha circa 1969.  We always had fresh tomatoes in the summer.  It was my grandmother who was the gardener.

This was her favorite pose. And I guess her favorite subject.  I hope this was the same trip.

My sisters & I also inherited from her the love of gardening.  I started very early in my life...

The photos of your sis's place...oh my...makes me wanna think about moving! What marvelous landscape! I bet she feels as if she's in heaven! The photos of your mother and a "little" you...are just prescious. Isn't it fun to reflect back?? Your mother with that Indian...in TWO photos...is just cute as heck! Thanks again so much for sharing your world!
