Sentimental Sunday - Happy Mothers' Day!

Happy Mothers' Day!

For Mothers' Day this year I offer this photograph of my mother & her mother:
Helen (Coyle) Gardner & Alberta Joy (Gardner) Brown. They are posing in front of their little house on Main Street in Germantown, NY in the late 1940s. Both of these women were very important in my life, teaching my brothers and I many things including love, independence, creativity and the importance of family. They are with me always.


  1. Perfect picture for today. Happy Mother's Day, Colleen!

  2. Thanks, Wendy & Happy Mothers' Day to you.

  3. What a great photo - I love the old telephone pole in the background, too!

    1. Thanks. It was taken in front of their little country house. In 1940 they moved from New York City to the country.
