ABC Wednesday 'D' is for DARWIN....She was...
My 'D' i for the woman Emma Darwin married to Charles and a mother of 10 children.
This is what wikipedia says about my 'D'
Emma Wedgwood was born in 1808 at the family estate of Maer Hall, Maer, Staffordshire, the youngest of seven children of Josiah Wedgwood II and his wife Bessy (Elizabeth). She grew up in a wealthy manufacturing family; her grandfather Josiah Wedgwood had made his fortune in pottery, and like many others who were not part of the aristocracy they were nonconformist, belonging to the Unitarian church. Charles Darwin was her first cousin; their shared grandparents were Josiah Wedgwood and his wife Sarah; and as the Wedgwood and Darwin families were closely allied, she had been acquainted with him since childhood.
'D' is also for one of my favourit flowers in my potager DAHLIA
Two Dahlias in full bloom in my potager, they are so very different and the light on the flowers is very different too. I think it is very pretty when the light is almost shining through in the Dahlia in latter picture.
I wish you all a DDDDelightful ABC Wednesday!
