    Default Grandma's little helper

    Having my daughter and granddaughter living close-by the last almost year, has been a dream come true. I had Val here tonight so my daughter could take a night class, and one of Val's favorite places is grandma's plant room. She's liking this whole spray the plants thing...although she manages to spray herself and grandma as much as the plants. lol

    She's adorable, Connie. It's great that you are passing on the tradition. I first started growing plants with my grandfather in his greenhouse.

    BD...I guarantee you she'd help you repot...you might have a few broken things though. lol The comments from those that remember being in their grandmother's greenhouse, that is so cool. I hadn't really thought about it that way...she just loves it back there so much. She almost wouldn't come out, I finally just sat down and let her mist the plants.
    Thanks for all the nice comments...she really is the apple in her grandma's eyes.
