Take a Word - Botanical

Every Spring my mother anxiously awaited the arrival of her seed catalogs in the mail.  She spent hours poring through them, and looking forward to working in her garden.   She's been gone for 19 years, but her flowers still bloom near the place she called home.   These vintage seed packets remind me of her.   The image is by Lynne Perella.  Thanks for stopping by.
