One major activity I looked forward to with my Grandma was working in her wonderful gardens. She taught me how to plant seeds and take care of the seedlings. She taught me how to thin out and transplant the little plants. She taught me to know the difference between weeds and flowers. She taught me how to recognize a vegetable plant by its leaves. I learned patience in harvesting at the right moment. I learned joy in arranging flowers in vases. Gardening was definitely an every day activity to her that was magical to me.
