Linda Stanford showcases her heart felt "memory gardens" in Illinois.
"Back in the Spring of 2013 Linda and Herb moved to Flossmoor, Ilinois and acquired a yard with trees, green bushes, one hosta variety along Butterfield Creek, a bridge and gazebo.
Today there is nothing formal about these ten gardens, just a copious amount of perennials, roses, flowering bushes, vegetables, herbs and lots of art. Each garden is dedicated in memory of a loved one featuring their favorite flower variety. There is also a garden dedicated to Alzheimer's and the most recent garden dedicated to the memory of Herb.
Recently the gardens were featured in one of the local garden walks and received many accolades."
