My maternal grandmother at the beach. The 1920’s…I love the simplicity of what she’s wearing. At that time many of the gadgets we now take for granted didn’t exist. A reminder that some of the things we think are simple were considered marvels at the time.
This is one my favorite pictures of my maternal grandfather. He’s enjoying a book in the backyard of the house where I grew up. Nothing fancy, just a basic lawn chair and some sunshine. It brings back some great memories of simpler times.
My paternal grandfather. The timeframe is probably the late 1920’s, maybe the early 1930’s. Those in my family who have a musical bent inherited this from him. He made complicated music sound so simple. I can close my eyes and still hear it.
I absolutely love this picture of my paternal grandmother. She looks so lovely with her simple white hat.
Forward to this weekend. A plant that I’ve had for a few years bloomed this week. I had no idea it would flower! My grandmothers would laugh as they knew how to keep a garden! One simple elegant flower just made my morning and made me think of my grandparents.
I made a simple cup of tea as I usually do. It’s been good to reminisce about simple things and simpler times.
