Apple Doesn’t Fall Far From the Tree…

My gorgeous grandma

Entertaining in their back yard

Garden along the side of someone's house. Grandma took this picture.

I wonder how big this Magnolia tree is now...

Striking a pose in front of her Dahlias

My dad and his brothers working hard digging a hole - for the patio?

Vintage Dahlias

My dad helping in the garden (or maybe that's another picture...)

I love these posed pictures.

I'll have to see how big this one is now...not even sure this is their house

More vintage Dahlias

My grandma sure loves her covered garden swings

My mom weeding my grandma's garden in the late 70's. You can see my little curly head in the foreground.

My grandma is in her 90’s now and has tended to the same garden for almost 60 years. I was fortunate that both sets of grandparents were gardeners who in turn gave the bug to my parents.

    • I know! I totally thought I got my love of Dahlias from my mom…after looking at these pictures I see it goes much deeper.

    I think Dahlia’s are a great plant. It’s good to look back at the old pictures.
