I felt like posting some pictures. I did some editing this afternoon to split this topic into two. I decided to make this a flower topic and the previous post an Africa post.
The first ones were taken exactly a year ago. Every time I drive past these flowers in my neigbor’s yard I think about Jenna. She would take a deep sniff of the flowers and then say: “Ahhhh”, so half the pictures I took that day caught her with her mouth open. 🙂
This was taken last spring too:
At the zoo, last spring. Don’t you just love the colors of these flowers? I wanted a picture of Jenna with those flowers in the background so badly. I told her there were bees among the flowers, and snapped the picture while she was looking for them. I tried to get a better pose out of her but alas! It was the end of a long day at the zoo and she was not impressed with my trickery. 🙂
The purple flower bush in my mom’s garden was Jenna’s favorite. We had fun with the flowers in her yard. We popped the seed pods of the impatients, and blew the dandelion like seeds of the felicias into the wind. We marvelled at how the fuchias look just like ballerinas. Jenna loved finding snails and watching them play peek-a-boo from inside their shells. My mom kept it a secret that the snails were met with a sad demise when Jenna wasn’t around!
This is the last picture I took of Jenna in a flower garden. It was taken in my aunt’s garden in Pretoria, South Africa, two days before Jenna left us. I showed her how to pull out the seeds of the dead marigolds and scatter them around, and this is what she is doing in this picture.
