Yellow boots

Today I want to share a sweet story that a good customer told me yesterday as she purchased some flowers and herbs. She had helped raise her granddaughter who is now 24 and has moved away. She told me of all of her wonderful memories of teaching her little granddaughter to garden and how much closer they became out in that garden. She said she would always remember looking up to see the little yellow boots that her granddaughter insisted on wearing as she gardened with grandma. So she went out and bought a pair of kids yellow boots and was going home to fill them with cement and place them in her garden as a reminder of the days that they gardened together. How sweet is that. So make your garden as personal as you can this year too. Gardens are a true place of refuge from some pretty stressful times.... Happy gardening!
