147/365+1:Gift


147/365+1:Gift, originally uploaded by Yankee T.

Our yard and garden are reflections of so many people. We have a maple tree and a fringe tree that were gifts from Tall Pretty Blonde. We have rose bushes that we planted in memory of our fathers. We have a purple cone flower that was a surprise on our doorstep from someone whose plant we admired, and we have this lovely, bright pink spectacle that came from a tiny little plant started by The Attorney's sister, Same Name As My Sister.

This is the showpiece in our flower bed. Dear Same Name As My Sister, we talk about you every single day when we come up the walkway to the front door, ever grateful for your flowers and for you.
