Memories






A big old house
With lots of memories
My grandparents home
For a half century
Porch swing swayed
As a few rode the railing
Flying in jets or on a pony
Times have changed
But the palace stands still
Out on the prairie.


 Canadian Anemone

 Prairie Phlox



Eastern Kingbird

  1. What a great house your grandparents had/have.
    All does seem to stay still on the prairie. Except for the wind.

  5. You got a wonderful shot of that Eastern Kingbird. The little log building is remarkable, isn't it? How did those early settlers ever manage in such tiny structures? :)

  6. I think that is what life is---memories. We live in the moment, but isn't it great we can capture that moment forever in our memory. Lovely post, as always. Mickie :)

  7. My family home is like this but not so large. Unfortunately the last of our family left it last year and it is now rented.
    Enjoyed the flower pictures.

  8. As always such gorgeous photos. I can just imagine all the fun times had in the grandparents' home. I'm so happy it's still there. My grandparents' sold their old place and it still breaks my heart that I can go in and run through the halls anymore. Also, I love frogs!

  9. Wonderful shots. I love that flower right after the phlox. Is that a frog sticking it's head out of the water in the third picture?

  12. My grandparents moved in 1976, but I enjoy visiting. I laughed seeing someone sitting in the living room bay window this last time walking around doing some shots.

  13. I love how people can walk all the way around that lovely house. All that space! And the Eastern Kingbird looks very proud of his lot in life, doesn't he? Your grandparents house looks like it was and is still a happy home.
