My panel depicts my Grandfather’s wondrous, bountiful garden. He could grow anything! And he loved to share his garden with family and friends. One time, his very young great-grandsons trampled early seedlings in the garden. They didn’t know what “stay out of the garden” meant. He laughed, and took them by the hands and patiently showed them what a garden was, and why they shouldn’t damage the plants.
