“The Rose Sniffs Me”

Karen Lampher at Capaha Park Rose Garden 06-11-1966Three-year-old Karen Lampher, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ted Lampher of Advance, sniffed every variety of rose at the Rose Display garden at Capaha Park when she visited it in June 1966.

“I sniff the rose and the rose sniffs me,” she said, exhibiting a great sensitivity for imagery.

Not big on bugs, though

Dennis Scivally Park Photos by James D. McKeown III, courtesy Steven McKeown

About a year ago reader Steve McKeown sent me a selection of family photos taken by his father, James D. McKeown III. I was scrolling through my directory of scanned photos when these photos jumped out – not because the girls are cute, which they are – but because of the Cape landmark they are posing on.

I’m going to bet you’ve had your photo taken on it at some time in your life.
