These lovely old-fashioned roses grace the porch and steps at my grandparents farmhouse.
There is just something charming about them -
and about the old steps -
they've always been a favorite of mine.
I guess it's because of the precious memories they invoke -
I have such happy memories of our family farm -
and of gatherings on the porch with
Aunts, uncles, cousins, my parents -
and of course our "four-legged family" -
Old Shep - a sweet collie who was my Grandpa's farm and cattle herding dog -
and Old Susie - a three-legged dynamo of a hunting dog who was also guardian, adventurer, and bestest buddy to me all rolled into one!
So, what places are special in your heart?
Would love to hear about them!
