My Mom’s Japanese Garden

My mom used to live in Florida for many, many years.

She now lives with my brother and sister-in-law in the North Georgia mountains.

Yes, a bit of a change for her, but I can say that she is very happy

and thriving in her new environment.

Prior to my mom moving to Georgia, my sister-in-law Pam wanted her to

have a very special place that she can enjoy and also see from both her

bedroom window and a very large screened porch that is adjacent to her room.

Thus, My Mom’s Japanese Garden was created. … Creation by Pam.
