It is so important to focus on the human side of gardening. It is the personal, emotional stories that give the garden its light and life. You have a wonderful ability of sharing these stories Sharon.

Yet another delightful read and I thank you.

Nice to know we think along the same branches, Ben. My feelings exactly. Thank you for taking the time to read the article.

Merry Christmas to you and yours.

I agree--what a heartwarming story, so filled with love, yet still gave us a chuckle with your cousin being 'bossed around by an eight-year-old." Love it!

Edit: Our hillside is covered with those cedars, and I will think about the Native American story now when I go for my hikes between them. Thanks for the history!

Hi KY,
Thank you for your words. Hard to write about memories without a few tears, but I always try to find a smile in there somewhere. That bossy demeanor served me well when I taught, though, had to have something since I wasn't big enough to boss them around with my size!

Glad you liked the story, and thank you for writing. I always enjoy hearing from you.

And thank you, Dutchlady.
Your words always mean a lot.

This story is a hard one for me to tell, and also hard for me to read after writing it.

So I spent an hour on the phone with my brother tonight, just because.
