Love of Gardening is Contagious

My (almost) seven year old granddaughter has been asking me to make a flower garden at her house to surprise her mom. She has been spending one day a week with me recently; we decided today was the day, now that it has cooled off a bit.

My son was to dig out the sod, but was not working locally today to get home at lunch to do it, so we girls had to do that tedious job ourselves.

After the digging and soil preparation was done we took a break for lunch.

Next we added composted manure, then the plants…

The finishing touch was the mulch…

I was impressed at my granddaughter’s perseverance, she lasted 4.5 hours with only one short break at lunch time. I guess I should have had her sign a waiver in case anyone reports me for abusing the child labor laws.
