May 1966 - Flowering Trees


Flowers! Grampa and Grandma loved them all; plants, bushes and trees. I don't remember this pretty pink tree. 

Grampa took the photo from an upstairs window. It's a theme. He took photos from the back walk and from the upstairs window. Sometimes he took both on the same day to get a different angle of his yard and garden. 

You don't have to go far away from home to find beauty. Grampa found beauty and his own paradise right in his backyard.

These photos are from my grandfather's collection of carefully labeled slides and photographs. Some include not only the exact date, but also the time of date. Grampa was a prolific photographer. The Magical Backyard is a collection of photo memories from my grandparent's (and now my aunt's) backyard. 

Spend some time here; enjoy the garden or sit in the shade of the big maple tree. It's a peaceful place enjoyed now by the fourth generation of the Smith family in Bristol, Connecticut.
