Wordless Wednesday: Velma and Woody at the Bush

Wordless Wednesday is a daily prompt at Geneabloggers that asks family historians to create a post in which the main focus is a photograph or image.

Velma and Woody Woodring September 1928


This is the 4th picture in a series of photos taken with that peculiar bush at my great-grandparents’ home in Shenandoah, Virginia.

  1. That is a peculiar bush. Any guesses? Some of those leaves look dried and brown...almost like grape leaves of some varieties, but the bush has such densely situated leaves, that wouldn't be right...

  2. It looks like my "weeping mulberry bush"

  3. It does look like some kind of weeping plant. I wonder why it was featured in so many pictures. Hmm.

    1. It certainly was a dramatic-looking bush. My aunts must have had a thing for bushes - lots of other bush photos in the college scrapbooks too. Cracks me up ~

  4. That bush needs its own name!

    1. Yes, it does seem to have a life of its own, much like a character in a story.

  5. We had a bi-fold door in our childhood home that was the back drop for many photos, particularly prom photos. When we sold the house last year we actually thought about taking the door out first :-)

    1. You should have! What a memento that would be.
