wp-maggie-in-the-garden

What is a hobby you can do the rest of your life? Gardening — with adaptations. Take it from a couple of 99-year-olds. My mom, Maggie, claims that gardening is her psychiatrist. She wants to have a garden even if it doesn’t grow or produce anything she can eat. Just to see it and talk […]
