I am stealing again. This photo is from my daughter's camera. The camera I bought her so she would stop touching my camera lens with her greasy fingers. This is the back of our yard/house. This is our peony bush that is almost as tall as she is. The flowers bloom around her birthday. Peonies originated in China.
This house used to be her great grandmother's home. I am finding all kinds of links to firmly plant G here. Everyone needs a solid foundation with deep roots. Poor girl has been uprooted and brought here, but I am finding ways to root my child deep in our lives in our families history and still keep a remembrance of her Chinese roots. No not through a plant, but this plant keeps me reminded of where she originated, and yes she can grow here just like that plant with deep loving roots.
(How is that for deep?)
