Gardening Grandma is exhausted

Thanks, everyone, for your comments about yesterday’s blog. I’ll comment on them tomorrow, and catch up on some of your blogs as well. Tonight I’m too exhausted – I spent hours with my graddaughters in Woodstock, digging a new garden plot and putting in a flat’s worth of annuals. The nine-year-old really got into planting, though not perfectly, while the three-year-old loved wielding the trowel but tended to wreak havoc with what was already planted. A new experience for both of them, and for me too – I’m usually a solitary gardener.

My computer’s really slow tonight too – I think we both need a good night’s sleep. But I didn’t want to break my blog-a-day habit. I look forward to chatting with folks tomorrow.

    It’s good that your granddaughters are interested in gardening. I usually do not have green fingers but lately I seem to be doing ok with hardy plants like African violet. The leaves are prospering. If only I could get some flowers!

    Kids can really take the stuffing out of you! Kudos to you for blogging, writing, and having fun with your grandchildren.

    Ah, gardening. Yep. It’s fun, if my wife and I can agree on where the plant goes, it’s orientation in the hole, and once in place that, no, it would NOT look better 6 inches to the right!

    I have this lovely image of you with your granddaughters in the garden. I’m so jealous. My son is 36 and no prospects of a partner, let alone grandbabies. Oh well, maybe someday. Glad you took time for yourself and rested.

    Grandchildren aren’t in the picture for me either, and while I’ve accepted the fact, it’s nice to read about the fun you’re having with yours.

    Since I just returned from meeting my first grandbaby (who lives more than halfway across the country), I sense the joy you feel at sharing your garden with the little ones. Grandkids is one of the bonuses for those whose kids decide to have kids. Well, you know what I mean…
