Gestures of Kindness

I told this story to my mom last night on the phone and she thought it was incredibly sweet so I want to share it with all of you.

Yesterday was my second gardening club of the season and one of my students brought me a tree start that she had dug up from her own garden to give to me to plant in mine. She brought it over in a bucket dripping with water. We planted it together in one of the newly tilled corners of my garden. It was a very thoughtful gesture of kindness, she is only 10 years old.

After that all of the students and I planted sunflowers along the perimeter of my garden.

Also, side note, if you read my last post, yesterday was April 13th and it snowed here! Zeynab can predict anything!
