Weekly Photo Challenge: Local

This week, the challenge is to show us where your heart is.

“Local” to me is not so much a place as the people you know and experiences you have while being there.

Here is a garden dedicated to my son’s former third grade teacher, Mr. Winford. He died unexpectedly and it was so very sad. He loved kids and teaching. His eyes smiled when he spoke to his students. I feel lucky that at least my oldest son got to learn from him. Gardening meant a lot to Mr. Winford, so it’s fitting the school choose to honor him this way. 

I’m betting he’s still smiling as he watches these kids, having a quiet moment in all the chaos stirring around them on any given day. But here in the garden, they can stop for a bit, rest on the bench, and gather their strength and enjoy the beauty of this place. I know Mr. Winford would love that.

Mr. Winford would appreciate this picture.

But I think he’d like this one more! Mr. Winford is there right with them. That’s what I think!

  1. Hi Amy,
    that’s a great little garden. I love little places like that. I hope you’ve been well, it’s been a long time since I’ve done much blogging. I’ve been hard at work writing on some other projects, but I hope to return before too long.

    1. Well hi, David! Thank you. I like little places like this too. I think it’s a pretty high compliment to have a garden in your name. So very good to see you. Blogging has been pretty touch and go for me lately. Busy working too. I did get that writing job! I’m glad to hear you’re busy writing. I look forward to reading when you return. Thanks for the visit.
