How much of your childhood do you remember?
I remember the roses in my nan’s garden pictured here. Picking them to make scented water with her. Lining the path which led to the bottom of her huge garden.
I remember at the end of the path we used to pitch a tent – the old style tents with a single pole at the entrance, where we would throw a blanket and eat a picnic lunch.
Just in front of me there was a grassy bank leading down from the back of the house, where we would roll down the hill, our arms glued to our sides and giggle and giggle and giggle.
I remember this dress and the matching necklace I made to wear with it out of plaited wool.
I remember all of this because of this photo and others like it.
So is that how my children will remember their early years? A series of photographs telling their story?
If that’s the case then it’s time to start snapping some more!
