My family

Story reviewed

       Back in the summer of 2017, My brother and I went to visit my mother side of the family. The picture includes two of my aunts as well as my grandma inside a family owned rose garden. In the far left side of the picture, you can see one of my aunt holding a special equipment to spray the flowers. I recall falling in love when I first saw the garden and what I love about this family photo is capturing how hard the women in my family work. The women in my family on my mother's side are very independent and admirable. The rose garden is owned and run by my two aunts whose husbands have passed away. I admire that they were able to find strength within each other. When I look at this picture, it reminds me to admire the power and unity that runs in my family.
