It’s April! That means it’s time for the ‘BLOGGING A to Z CHALLENGE’. Everyday this month (except Sunday) bloggers will be blogging to a theme, using different letter of the alphabet – running, of course, from A to Z.

Most of my writing is about keeping memories alive, so a spring garden is a perfect match to celebrate loved ones memories. Come join us all month for 26 different posts about Memory Gardens … and then, maybe plant your own tribute to remember your own special person.

    This send me back to my childhood .. and my grand parents garden – they had an alcove that was behind a hedge of Jasmine .. I will never forget that fragrance it spread in the evening.
    This is my memory plant … and my grandma’s black tulips.

    I love jasmine. Mostly in tea, because our garden is not ideal for it, but it is a lovely flower. I used the Indian folktale of the Jasmine princess last year for J in my Weird Princesses series.
    Thank you!
