of painting flowers
This flower you could break off and carry in your hair, and people would ask who you are wearing, what fragrance. I believe I’ve heard it called a bluebell, but I cannot find its real name. It is like a hyacinth, but I’m not sure it makes the cut. Any ideas?
I’ve carried this painting with me everywhere I’ve ever lived. I remember Mama painting, with a scarf tied in her hair.
Grandma Haines painted this when she was 15. Her hair was black. Her Mama taught her how.
She did not imagine that her granddaughter in-law would one day keep it in her window seal and dream of hanging it in her own little girl’s room.
