In Memory - my mother

July 1 is the anniversary of my mother's death in 1997.

When she and dad bought our summer house in Stormville, NY in ~1950 she became very interested in gardening. SHe wandered through the woods collecting wild flowers and built a rock garden - we had lots of rocks. She bought lots of books, some of which I still have. Gardening was a new thing for her for in the past when not in the city there were hired gardeners.

She usually used just a trowel or other small tools. This photo was my making fun of her using larger tools for digging.
