Ever since I can remember, my Mother has had a garden. At our old house it was small, and I was young. When we moved to our 'new' house there was more yard, and therefore more space for a larger garden. At first it was a small rectangle garden out in the yard with the two trees and the swing set. Small tree was cut down and the garden grew. Then there was the pool, then there wasn't the pool and the garden grew again. Larger and larger and more elaborate the garden grew. More plants, more types of plants, fruit trees, herbs, flowers etc. Sometime in the early 80's my Father bought a Canon AE-1 Program camera and a couple lenses. If I remember correctly a 70-210 zoom, and a 35-105mm macro lens.
