Focus on Life: Reminisce



I have really been missing these weekly posts and I am so glad that I am now able to jump  back into the  parade.  Now I am sure that you are wondering just what parade I am talking about.  Sally Russick of Studio Sublime has taken us on a wonderful journey where she sends up prompts each week and we get to take and show of pictures related to the prompts.

Our prompt this week was:


Have you ever been in the middle of a busy day and all of a sudden you run across a certain baked good, candy, flower or an object catches your attention and you are sent right back to your childhood? 

This week capture what takes you back to moments past and reminisce a little.



I don't have a lot of childhood memories that I would want triggered however this flowers took me back many years.  When I was first was married, we went to Germany with the US Army.  I absolutely loved living there with the interesting foods, castles, great people, castles and expensive cut flowers.  I always had bouquets all over the place.  So when I arranged this bouquet before our monthly potluck I was taken back to a younger time almost thirty years ago.

Now that you have heard my story, be sure to click here to check out all the gorgeous photos and memories.

  2. I bet that was a special time and adventure. Beautiful flowers today too. I have a little bunch of lily of the valley at the moment. Picked from Grandma's house and clutched in a wet papertowel inside a baggy all the way home to me. My new fav cut flowers!
