Mother of Pearl

I don't know how long I've had this shell. It was given to me by my oldest aunt, who lived in Alabama. She was my gardening aunt and taught me a lot about how to grow things. Every year, when we went to visit the family, she would have plants from her gardens ready for me to bring home. My parents were not gardeners at the time, so it was up to me to find places for them and nurture them. She gave me this shell, which sat in the gardens at my parent's house, until they passed away and we sold the house. It then moved to one of my gardens, where it will remain. It has never lost any of it's color or luster.

Thanks Aunt Alphie.
