This week’s Sepia Saturday blog prompt is a picture of back gardens.
As a child I spent many happy hours in my grandfather’s back garden in Canberra.
|There was a sandpit that my grandfather had built for my aunt. This picture is of my brother and I playing in it.|
|My grandfather, Hans Boltz, working on his lawn mower. My brother is looking on (I cropped him out of the picture). Kenny the canary is also enjoying the sunny day.|
|Me on the swing that was set up between two apple trees. There was also a pear tree, plum trees, a cherry, nectarine, a peach and an almond tree, as well as sour cherry trees.|
|My mother pushing my aunt on that same swing about ten years earlier|
|Here I am helping to gather some of the garden’s produce|
