ABC Wednesday - "A"

During this ABC Wednesday (round 10), I anticipating a variety of gardens and gardeners.   I hope you're able to walk with me!
 
Aunt MEA
lives in extreme North Central Iowa.
She gets a lot of snow during a Winter season.

 Yet, once Spring comes, you'll find this wonderful array!

 My Aunt MEA has likely gardened for as long as she can remember.
These are photos of her vegetable garden from July 2011.


One last Fun Look at some her beautiful lilies.
Yep! 
My Aunt MEA is my Gardening Heroine!
I hope to be gardening when I'm 95 years old, too! 
:-)

Millicent is certainly a special lady. She is a charter member of our federated garden club, she is my mentor and I am so pleased to know her and be her friend. Her lilies are incredible!

I am truly amazed at "my" Aunt Millie. She is such a lovely lady! Her gardens are more beautiful in person than in the photos. Thanks so much for telling others of her.
Her niece in Minnesota!
