My photo and poem, Forever Treasure, was inspired by the purple iris perennials in my yard that were gifted to me in 2014 from a friend who has now passed away. As you can tell, the purple iris and the peonies in the background will always be a reminder to me of our friendship and his love of gardening in the spring.
Thank you Carol at Beyond Literacy for inviting me to add to the Spring’s Seeds Gallery.

Awww….so true! I have peonies from my grandfather’s yard that bloom every year. He’s been gone 14 years now, but I still think of him every spring when I see their beautiful blooms.
I have my mother’s Easter lilies! Yes, their blooms are a blessing and a reminder.
What a beautiful way to keep a memory blooming. We brought a branch of pussy willow from our old house and it is now a 10′ tall bush. It brings happy memories of living in Pottsville every time we look at it.
Amy, you worked diligently to create your digital inspiration/imagepoem. The end result is a true forever treasure.
Love this, Amy. The gift of flowers, the reminder of friendship blooming in your garden, wonderful memories renewed each year!
These treasures are so valuable. I had some of these. My mother gave me a magnolia tree and every time I looked out my kitchen window and saw it there, I thought of her. Alas we moved last fall. What I miss most is all these green memories.
