What I Will Not See Again

201505WisteriaNext spring, I will not see these flowers.

201505WisteriaBeeI won’t hear the roar of the bees as they race to drain every drop of nectar from the wisteria.

201505HouseWithWisteriaIt will bloom here, on my mother’s back porch, but I no longer have any business wandering behind the house to see it.

This is my first post for “Five Photos Five Stories” – with a thank you to Jo Bryant of Chronicles of Illusions.

The Rules are as follows..

Here are the rules for the “Five Photos Five Stories” challenge: “Post a photo each day for five consecutive days and attach a story to the photo. It can be fiction or non-fiction, a poem or a short paragraph and each day nominate another blogger for the challenge.
(Sporadic posting is alright if you’re unable to post each day.)

I’m going to modify the rules a little, though; instead of waiting to be nominated, if you’re intrigued by the idea or need a little push to get your blogging in motion, feel free to join in!

  1. Looking one’s last (at anything) bitter sweet at best.

    • Yes, definitely bittersweet. I’m glad the house is sold; it’s a new home for a nice young couple, and selling it frees me from commuting half the width of Pennsylvania every week to look after the house while it sits empty doing nobody any good. But it’s been part of my life since I was in my early teens, and now it’s gone.

      • That’s very hard (though good if the house went to nice people). My family were wanderers so it’s an experience I don’t share with you, but I have said goodbyes to two or three loved homes so I guess at the feeling.

  2. Wow !!!
    This is on a whole new level …

  3. I’m glad and sad with you.
