Watering His Flowers

Anthony planted some flowers with Grandma yesterday, so today it was time to water them.

Near the “Anthony's Tree”

The evergreen (a sequoia redwood) to the right of the flowers (in the center of the picture above) is one that Anthony planted when he turned one year old.

Let's look at a couple of old pictures....

I like the fact that George was waving to the camera – with a little help.

Wow, I almost had tears when I saw a picture of 1yr old Anthon. Very touching…and you look a bit older too, Jeffrey?
