Where I Am From Memoir Meme

 I so enjoyed writing my 'Where I Am From' post that I decided to start a new meme with it. Memories are wonderful, and they are made up of so many different things that come together and leave an imprint in the mind. Sometimes they are as clear as if they happened yesterday, and sometimes they are just bits and fragments...a sound, a scent, a taste, a feeling. Some of my childhood memories will sound familiar to my kids and grandkids, but many of them will be things that they may never experience. I believe that taking the time to jot down some of these memories is a nice memoir to pass down to future generations. I'd love to have one written by each of my parents, my siblings, and my children!

  It may sound like a big chore to write this, but to make it easy, someone has provided a template that you can follow. I used it as a guide for mine, but didn't follow it completely. This is your memoir, and you can write it your own way. I also added pictures to mine, which is also optional. No matter how you write it, I think that you will find the walk down memory lane as enjoyable as I did!??

This is a link to the original  Where I Am From, by George Ella Lyon

When you write your Where I Am From Memoir, please add a link to this post, and come back here to leave a comment, so I can add your link. This is an ongoing meme with no time limit; jump in any time. If you don't have a website, just email me your, 'Where I Am From,' and I will post it here. I look forward to reading your story!

Stepping Stones Along My Journey

You're probably wondering what it has to do with gardens...but it shouldn't surprise you to know that Mom and Dad's garden has been the inspiration for a few pages of my book!



The Garden of Ede'n...... Gerald

Not too many people can claim to live in the Garden of Ede'n......
Ede & Gerald, that is! This is my parents' garden. Most of the pictures featured here are from spring 2006, but there are a few from early last summer, 2007. I hope you enjoy the garden as much as our family does!
Spring and early summer pictures.

A yellow Lady Slipper growing wild in the yard.
The flowers are just beginning to fill out, and everything is a lovely shade of green,
as we look up the garden path toward the house.

A place to sit and rest for a while, and enjoy the view.

...and a home for little visitors

The scent of lilacs fills the air!

Beautiful shades of purple growing beside brilliant white lilacs.

Just a little glimpse to get us started!

Thanks for visiting the garden of Ede'n Gerald! I'll be adding more pictures, so come back soon!

Manitoba Gardens....My New Blog

This blog may be under construction for a while, since it is early May, and Manitoba gardens are not yet in bloom. But as the season progresses, I hope to be able to share some beautiful pictures with you. So, please check back often for updates!
