Wednesday 22nd April 2015 - The Letter S























 
S is for SOLROS, which is 'SUNFLOWER' in Swedish, one of Tina Downey's favourite flowers. I want to honour Tina's memory with a sunflower for the letter S. 






I took theses pictures before 20th August 2009, when my daughter Elisabet was five years old. I wanted to post them for the memorial post for Tina Downey on 8th September 2014. I thought this one lone sunflower was symbolic of Tina's strong will to live and reach out to others. But I couldn't find it until now after going through several memory cards and about 6000 photos.






















The photo quality of the last picture is really bad - it is not even in focus. But it shows the unkempt part of our garden behind the garage, just sand, gravel, two broken bicycles and an abandoned baby carriage. No one planted this sunflower. There must have been seeds that were just dumped there. And only one plant survived.





















I wish Tina could have seen these pictures. I wonder what she would have thought? She was a great one for taking photos. She might have liked them.

I wish I could have met Tina in person. We never did. We just chatted through our blogs and the blog hops that we did together. Thank you Tina for inspiring me.


And thank you all for taking the time to visit with me here.


Best wishes,
Anna
