Spring In My Heart

I adore this page from L.M. Montgomery’s scrap book. It makes me think of spring on the east coast and of my grandmother, Minnie Graham. When spring came to PEI, she would be in her little blue Ford, cruising all over the island looking for May flowers. May flowers are elusive, tiny pink flowers – usually found in ditches by those who know what they’re looking for. Grammy would pull over to the side of the road, grab her basket and clippers (which she always kept in the glove compartment for such occasions) and step down into the ditch. She’d snip them for a fresh bouquet to put on her kitchen table. She also loved bulrushes, pussy willows and L.M. Montgomery.
