memories in our garden …

Many things in our house and our garden tell stories about our history.

Two examples …

 

the wooden wheel of my father’s wheelbarrow

 

the old terracotta tiles of the kitchen floor of the farmhouse where my Mother was born and raised, “de Haar” in Vorden.

 

100 years ago, my mother cleaned these tiles with water and sand, on her knees with a hard brush. She was a little girl then, just a few years old …. now these unglazed terracotta tiles have been in our herb garden for another 15 years.
