Heather: The birthday ﬂowers from the Georgia relatives and from the California relatives were so beautiful. Did your mother like flowers?
Audrey: Yes, Grandma (MaryJane [née Vaughn] Spencer) always had ﬂowers. She always had a half-barrel (barrel cut in half) with special ﬂowers planted inside. The half-barrel was on a cut off tree stump (the stand for the half barrel) so grandma would not have to bend over to plant ﬂowers. Also, all along the wall in front of the house were ﬂowers. There (the dirt) was dug out so grandma could plant ﬂowers.
