Part of the Re : Connecting series, images from The Horning Nursery documents my dad’s reconnection to his grandfather’s farm while presenting my first impressions of a history never told. After nearly 60 years, a recent visit uncovered answers to family mysteries, revealed lost items long discarded, and presented a new story to include in my identity.
