Posts Tagged half barrel with special flowers

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.
