Never Give Up

“Never ever give up; be strong, very strong” – Margaret Harvard

My mother Margaret shared a load of wisdom with me over the years and what she said above was stated more fiercely in her last few months of living.

“Mom, all your effort with me over the years is still paying off; I made it into the Saturday newspaper with a few photos Lol 🙂 ;). I love you lots, thank you” ~ Andy

Mom’s Garden revisited 1

Some of my “older” blogging friends may recall one of my previous posts Mom’s Garden.

I recently returned to Mom’s garden to take some more snaps.

She has not been well recently and has not been able to give the garden any attention, but I still think her garden is an interesting and stunning hideaway; a gem!

Photo 3 below is my absolute fairy-tale favourite. Do you have a favourite and if so which one? Please let me know.

Mom’s garden

During a recent visit to my mom I dropped into the back garden to see who was there.

A happy couple was seated under the bird bath.

A fierce lion was soaking up the rays.

This little fella was taking a well-deserved break.

There was also a: a lonesome swan.

A dangerous crocodile.

A cheerful little man.

A pair of frogs.

Otter with a claimed fish.

Mom otter and her little one.

Morning dew.

Last photo before home-time.
