To Keep My Memories Growing....






  I have always loved flowers.



Our visit to Europe provided many opportunities to fall in love.

From the flower vendors in Dublin....





....to the simple window gardens of the Cotswolds.  



The impressive gardens of the Tulleries....





.....to the simplicity of Peter Rabbits own garden!!!!




I was inspired!!!

With each country we visited I sought  out flower seeds.  

Small enough to fit in my suitcase, 
and not to heavy to cause an overcharge for luggage at the airport!!!!




I came home with these....
each seed an opportunity to bring home a bit of Europe home with me. 




I have patiently been growing them in my bitty seed house.  




Now I have Pink Morning Glories from England....




Sweet memories of Holland....




....and until my flower seeds from Paris sprout, 
I brought home these postcards that are happily in my sewing room. 




A memory of the most delightful bookshop in the Tulleries Gardens in Paris. 




My garden may not be Royal....
but the memories are more priceless than many other riches.
