Dorothy Garden

My mother’s birthday was this week.  She was born July 11, 1925 and would have been 91 years old this year. Mom died in June of 2013. One of the ways my father keeps my mother’s memory alive is by growing a Dorothy Garden each year in a plot on the grounds of the seniors’ apartment complex where he makes his home.  Dad lovingly tends the plants there.  one of mom and dad's flower bedsMy parents spent many hours together keeping their country property near Steinbach awash with beautiful flowers each year.  They were founding members of the Steinbach Garden Club and enjoyed sharing their love of growing things with others.

On Monday my brother and his wife stopped at Dad’s to take some photos of his 2016 Dorothy garden.
