more from Grandma’s garden

i am amazed at the beauty that my Grandma has been able to produce for years in such rocky soil. it would have been wondrous to see what she could have done with good soil. she told me that when she first started her garden here back in the 70’s – she worked and worked to clear the rocks out of the first 4-6″ of dirt. but the rocks just keep rising to the surface. my uncle says they must be affected less by gravity, since they are always rising to the surface.

i said “grandma, there are some flowers out there that look like crocuses, what are they?” she responded, “they are winter crocuses”.

  1. She certainly does have a lot of beautiful flowers! I’m grateful that I have good soil; otherwise, I’d never be able to grow anything.

  2. She really must have a green thumb. I just learned about winter crocuses yesterday at another Mosaic Monday offering featuring them. They’re quite wonderful.

i am thankful for any words of encouragement, i eagerly read each one, thank you in advance...
