My garden this year celebrates her in a very significant way. The garden has been an ongoing source of delight for the hundreds of visitors to Rockport throughout the entire summer. On more than one occasion, we have found several visitors right up and within the garden taking pictures. I wasn't at all upset at the "intrusion". I smiled each time to think that Mom would... and did share her own with so many visitors, even taking bouquets to shut ins and elderly friends. Flowers were her friends... and her gardens overflowed with her joy and satisfaction as she tended them faithfully.
In a loving tribute to her... I should like to share a few of the many "annuals" that I have created as a perennial tribute to her contributions to "Me" and my own family. Each and every August 21st... I add yet another "bloom" to mark the occasion. I offer these bouquets as well... to Mothers amongst my Followers. Thank "You"... all ... for tending your own gardens as well!!
"I " will always love "You" Mom... ever remembering and giving thanks for those halcyon, still summer nights at The Narrows. That wistful,wonderful summer sound has disappeared... like you, but I shall always treasure those special nights with "You"... when the whipper-will sang!
Love "You" Forever!
