Sylvia Price remembers her garden

Published: June 10, 2013, 5:13 pm, by Ryan Handy

Sylvia Price lived on Linger Way in Mountain Shadows for nineteen years. 

When her home burned down she lost, among many things, her beloved garden. For her Waldo Scrapbook submission, Sylvia sent us photos of her garden:

The pictures are the before and after of my garden.  A garden that I loved spending time in and put many, many hours of labor into it, mostly correcting my own mistakes.

After the fire, Sylvia and her husband moved out to Florida, and chose to start their lives again somewhere else.

The move has not been easy for me, I left behind a ton of friends and those beautiful mountains.
