In the summer I am reminded often of summers past. Today I began to think about the flowers in my grandmother and mothers gardens. I was reminded of the Oleander that Grandmother Seaburg planted by her back door step and probably watered with the dish water after she was finished cleaning up meals. She decorated this bush at Christmastime because there were no other trees to decorate. I inherited a love for flowers and even when we are in the desert I gather them around me.
