On a rainy and dark weekend I play with my blue and white.
China dishes were washed and then placed back in their cluttered country cottage china cupboard.
My maternal grand-parents, Mary & John
on their wedding day.
They were the original settlers of the land we now live on.
I feel my grandmother's presence every time I garden here.
She was known for her beautiful flowers and welcoming home.
Her love of children and cats.
Her side-kick was a beautiful brown tabby girl named Maggie.
I never met my grandfather as he passed away the year I was born.
"I see the 'ol gal that lives here now hasn't noticed something.
"Hey, where did her ear go?"
