Looking back at old photos, it’s interesting how many of our special family moments have been captured in the garden. When visiting family or taking our annual “starting school” photos we would always pop outside to take them.
It’s not surprising really as natural light is great for photos and the garden can make a beautiful backdrop. We also find at big family gatherings that it is easier to take a group photo outside where there is more room.
As well as seeing how we have grown up we can also see how the garden has progressed. It is so strange seeing our family garden with no grass and small conifers.
The above photo was taken at my 21st birthday party in August, 2001. I took lots of garden shots of me with all my family, my friends and with Dave. I treasure the above photo the most as it is the last shot that I have with my dad as unbelievably he died suddenly two months later.
I love looking back at the kids “back to school” photos and seeing how they grow each year.
When we took these photos at my birthday last year it was special as my sister Jo had not long come home from hospital after he stroke and we were so grateful to be having happy family times again.
This is a happy memory of a lovely family Easter Egg hunt.
I love this shot of my sister Ceri with Lexy, my niece Cerys and Danny.
