Happy Birthday, Grandma Elsa!

Grandma Elsa's Garden

Today is my dear grandma’s birthday.  She was born in 1895 in Grossgartach, Germany.  I loved growing up on the farm next to her.  I loved her gardens and turning these big stones surrounding each garden bed over to find bugs.  Grandma created beauty around her–in her yard, in her quilting, in her simple appreciation of goodness and hard work.

Today I happily remember her.Farming023.jpg
