I still miss my mother, and I think about her every day. Since Robin and I started doing the ancestry search, it has really made me wish that I could ask her some of her life history questions that she either didn’t tell me , or that I forgot, or just didn’t know to ask. For many years after she died, I packed around flower roots and starts that had come from her garden, slowly losing them a bit at a time with each move over the years. I think that some of my irises might still be from her iris patch, but that is about the only ones, and i am not even sure about that part. Anyway, I have a lilac, peony plant, and current bush in honor of the ones she had, so they are hers in spirit if not in actual fact.
