A Son's Family Tree

It's always heartening to discover a descendant is interested in family trees.  I was therefore delighted to see this post from my son on Facebook recently.




Before we sold my mother's house last year my son took a rough cutting of her frangipani tree. It looks as though a piece of her tree will live on in my son's garden.

Sharing family plants has played a big part in our family... we have cuttings and plants from so many in our garden. Yesterday, we shifted one of Mum's roses out of our garden as we're having work done, that just might have damaged it. It will go back when all is done.
I have three different frangipannis from various family gardens, at least they are very easy to strike and care for.

After a grandma of mine passed away a number of years ago, I took a whole car load of plants from her place. Many have survived, and I always get a thrill when they flower, and say "that was grandma's". :-)

We only have a few ancestor plants - so pleased to see our son, a youngster like you Alona, taking an interest.

I believe my Aunt in Sydney has cuttings from a plant that was at my Great Grandmother's place in Bowraville.

That is so special.
My Nana was given a Christmas Cactus by her mother-in-law the first Christmas they were married, in 1912. When she died in 1974 my aunt took the plant. Last year at my Mom's 90th birthday, my aunt brought cuttings from that mother cactus and gave them to all Nana's great grandchildren.
