BTW, so glad to have you back posting, have missed reading your blog.

That is so interesting to see the pictures of your Nana, and her garden. Love the idea of the name change and honoring your ancestors.

Thanks again for your inspiring, wonderful blog!

Hi Janet, Thanks for your encouraging comments. Sorry for the slow reply.

There will be much more blogging activity once I get back to San Diego in November.

I am going to write an eBook about modern urban greenscaping, relaunch this blog in a new format and recruit one or more writers to take this blog to a new level. Stay tuned!

Pretty neat to see, Bob.

I think it's great to reconstruct our histories and what came before. I've been lucky to have a lot of my genealogy done by my parents and grandfathers.

It is sure neat to have such photos and too bad we can't see the garden a bit more.

Glad you are blogging again. I do enjoy your site.

Hey Aaron, thanks for your comments and encouragement. I don't have any prior genealogy research from my family but I sure do have a bunch of photos. Doing the Flickr set is like putting a 1000 piece puzzle together. I have learned a lot about my family by uploading photos and looking at them on a 27" monitor. Details that are not so apparent in a snapshot show up in surprising ways. Also, arranging them in context tells a story without words.
