Going through old photos I'm always surprised. No matter how vivid summer is in my memory there's plants I have forgotten about. Like the glorious rush of Sonata Mixed Cosmos in early summer.
Or old milk buckets filled with red geraniums..
The blossoms of highbush cranberry.
Sometimes what catches my eye in the photos is not just what I've forgotten but what I failed to notice.
Anybody know who this rather fetching insect is? He matches the button on this cosmos very nicely.
This was a rather boring shot of a lawn chair until I realized those flowers are growing not just around the chair
but also through it.
Of course one of the best things about going through old photos is reliving some wonderful moments. On Canada Day we went to the Rocky Point lighthouse and watched the fireworks in Charlottetown from across the water.
We had the best seat in the house.
Or remembering my trip to Calgary for my nephew's wedding.
Jody wasn't able to make the trip with me but he wasn't forgotten.
Some photos capture a moment in time perfectly. Years from now I like to think I'll look back at this photo and happily remember this house and how wonderful it was to live here.
