Once again, yet another amazing photoshoot with the A Team. Here is Aaron Nace’s story behind the image…
An old woman living alone on a farm is pulling up weeds in her garden, when she hears a scream. One of the plants she is pulling up resembles a baby. The old woman took the child in to raise as her own, seeing as she always wanted a child, but the lord left her infertile.
The plant child grew and grew and through the years turned into a young woman. The old woman knew she didn’t have much time left on earth, and decided to tell the plant child the story of how she found her. The two decided it would be best for the girl to go back home underground, and for the plant child to seek out her real parents. That year, however, a horrible drought ravaged the countryside, and dried up the soil. The two knew that there would be no way the girl would survive under ground.
Food became scarce, and there was little chance of survival for either of them. One morning the girl woke up to find the old woman missing. She called out for her, but no answer. She was about to give up when she saw the old woman’s dress out in the garden. She ran to her, calling her name, but received no reply. She found the woman with a smile on her face and a note in her hand.
“I am dead. Bury me in this garden. Let my body fertilize the soil. Go home to your family. I love you”
