Flowers of the Gardens
What is a garden? The free dictionary defines it as:
1. A plot of land used for the cultivation of flowers, vegetables, herbs, or fruit
To a gardener it is much more. It is a his/herstory of one’s life. Flowers and trees added to canvas.
Others moved and replanted in new portraits.
Memories salvaged from farmsteads, cemeteries and family homes.
Within the layers of petals and leaves are ghosts of those who have passed and dreams of those to come . . .
