Lost and Found – 30th March 2011

The photos below were taken during the summer of 2006. For a long time I thought they were missing but eventually found them, albeit not the full-size images, where I was least expecting to on a different laptop!

It all seems such a long time ago now, photos of Dad when he was healthy taken in my Grandma’s garden…life can change very quickly.

I’m glad they turned up.

  1. Lovely photos! The tremendously well-kept garden reminds me greatly of my own ‘Sheffield’ grandparents (paternal) who died a couple of years ago. They took great pride in their garden, and even towards the later years when they became unable to manage it entirely on their own, my arthritis-ridden grandmother used to point out weeds! The photo simply captioned ‘Dad’ is a truly beautiful memory of him – his trademark smile prominent in many of the photos I’ve seen of him.

    So pleased that you’ve found them! Must have been a lovely surprise!

    • Thanks for the comment, Andrew. Grandma used to have someone in to help with the garden etc in later years too.

      I felt something of a mixture of emotions at finding them again – glad that I’d found them and that it reminded me of a happy summer afternoon, but also obviously tinged with sadness with the recent passing of both Dad and Grandma.
