Nancy Merrill Photography challenges us each week to share a photo that expresses the theme of the week. This time it is NOSTALGIC.
When the grandkids were small, we had them wait (patiently?) on the steps while an adult made sure Santa had come. Those were precious moments that can only be relived when they have children of their own.
John Viccellio retired after 24 years in the U. S. Navy and began to dig into gardening when he could finally land in one place. He completed the Master Gardener course in 1992 and has since designed and constructed two of his own gardens. He wrote a monthly garden column for ten years and was a regular contributor to Carolina Gardener magazine. John published his first book, Guess What's in My Garden!, in 2014.
He lives in Stallings, NC with his wife, in close proximity to six of his eight grandchildren.
Please join me for A Walk in the Garden: a way of sharing gardening observations, spiced I hope with a dash of experience, a dollop of opinion, a slice of irreverence, a spoonful of love for plants, and a cup full of memories.

Those photos of kids who transformed long ago into adults are powerfully nostalgic indeed!
Thanks, Jason. I miss those special times with the little ones. BUT we have double-dated with our grandkids much later in their lives. That was fun too.
Oh my goodness! Those faces! Did you ask them to all put their hands in their laps, or are they holding their hands together just to keep still? So precious!
They did the hands on their own. I’ve looked at this picture for many years and never picked up on the hands in the lap. Thanks
