Article: Aunt Bett, Bee Balm and Battling Bees
ottoson Yucca Valley, CA (Zone 9a) You have such a way with words Sharon...although Aunt Bett would probably not make it obvious, I suspect she would be very proud of your stories about her! Keep them coming! :)
dragonfly53 South Boston, VA (Zone 7a) I agree, I love Aunt Bett stories too! I wish I had an Aunt Bett when I was growing up to teach me about using natures remedies - I learn better when I'm shown things, rather than reading about them. But please, keep the Aunt Bett stories coming!
cathy4 St. Louis County, MO (Zone 5a) Adorable stories, can't wait for the next one!
LouC Desoto, TX (Zone 8a) What wonderful, wonderful stories. Your descriptions are so eloquent I can see every scene as though I were there. More. Always more.
imapigeon Gilroy (Sunset Z14), CA (Zone 9a) Me, too!
Sharran (Zone 7a) Thank you. Aunt Bett was a true character, and I am glad that I learned from her. Also glad that you are enjoying getting to know her. I think I have learned more about her through these articles than I ever knew at the time of the hikes up the mountain.
imapigeon Gilroy (Sunset Z14), CA (Zone 9a) Not only that, but you're reminding me of my grandmother and her "ways", which were not so colorful as Aunt Bett's, but certainly had an impact on my love of plants & dirt!
pirl (Arlene) Southold, NY (Zone 7a) Another of your grand memories, Sharon, and as enjoyable as ever. I saved this Aunt Bett as my dessert but that Apple Stack cake certainly sounds wonderful.
Sharran (Zone 7a) Aunt Bett stories are fun and I am very glad for the memories I have. I am also glad that they remind you of interesting people in your lives.
Pirl, there was a blackberry cake that my Ninna made...I sure wish I could find that recipe!
Thank you for your comments, and if Aunt Bett were here she would be thanking you too.
pirl (Arlene) Southold, NY (Zone 7a) Maybe you've heard this one but it still is worth repeating:
God gave us memories so we might have roses in December.
Seems Aunt Bett is a big part of you memories and deserves that place of honor.
