My Father use to sing softly as we tended the garden together. A favorite was the Gilbert and Sullivan tune “The Flowers That Bloom In The Spring” (Mikado)
The flowers that bloom in the spring,
Breathe promise of merry sunshine —
As we merrily dance and we sing,
We welcome the hope that they bring,
The day before he passed away my 82 year old Father sent my 66 year old Mother a note containing a pressed Violet (her favorite flower) from their garden. His only message “The flowers that bloom in the spring, Tra la”. Love, Joe
Whenever I see Violets along the trail I am reminded of their Love and Friendship.
Love to ALL!
