Randy in the Garden in 1945 -- Post 652 of (Not So) Wordless Wednesday

  I can't help it, I can't do a wordless post! This is one of my favorite photographs:

This me in about 1945 (so 1-1/2 to 2 years old, in my blond hair, cool sailor's cap, and my jumper (and probably a diaper too).  My father was in the U.S. Navy at this time aboard the USS Halford, a destroyer, as a Mailman 3rd class.  My guess is that this is a summer 1945 photograph in the back yard of my grandparents home at 2130 Fern Street in San Diego.  We lived with them from the time my father went in the Navy until he was released in early 1946.  My grandparents had green thumbs, and the yard and greenhouse were filled with flowers and plants, not to mention fish ponds, birdbaths and bird feeders.

This photo (originally black and white) has been enhanced and colorized using the MyHeritage photo tools.
