My yard is in bloom including this vintage iris grown by my grandmother, aunts, and mother. As I moved throughout the years, it moved with me. #Family

The red hot pokers are a smorgasbord for the plentiful goldfinches. These came from my mom. Heirloom plants are a connection through the years with family members who may no longer be with us, an annual reminder of those before us who loved to be in the garden. Memories are in the flowers around me….
