Have not forgotten

No, I have not forgotten you, but I have been very busy outside. I have spent a few days up in the mountains helping my 92 year old grandmother with her garden. My aunt said she was going to be there and asked if I wanted to come up to help. It was something I had planned on doing for quite a while, but this was the extra little push! So, no pictures yet, not until my aunt emails them to me. My grandmother is so funny! She loves her flowers! I start digging yet before I get very far I have to move the hole over by 6 inches to put the plant in! She wants it just so! Then you have to watch her as she is very unsteady these days, and has fallen quite a few times in her garden. Yet she will take her walking cane, and go to town pointing or bashing a dirt clump! Those were fun days with her, and if it wasn't for her being so unsteady she would probably outlast me in the garden! Then these last few days have been working here at home, so there has been very little computer time. I'll get back on the bandwagon soon. Hope all is well with all of you!

How nice of you to go help your grandmother in her garden. My grandmother is 91 and she is still in charge of her garden as well. My mom gets to help with the watering, but everything else is still in my grandmas hands. Can't wait to see her soon... :-)

This time in your grandmother's garden will become seeds for heart memories in years to come. I loved my grandmothers and now that I am one I love being a grandmother to my little earth spirits I know as my grandchildren. Imagine and Live in Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart

How nice to spend time with your grandmother doing something you both love. I'm glad she has something she is so very interested in, it must help keep her contented.

Makes me think of the times spent in the garden with my grandmother.

How nice you are to help your grandmother. I remember my grandmother, now long gone, and helping her in her garden and standing by her side as she made biscuits.
