Happy Hands

My ABC Wednesday theme: The Mama and Her Authentic Green Thumbs
. . .and Fingers
Long ago, the Only and Older Bionic Brother and I talked about the Mama's future and what if she were to move into an apartment. It was a very short discussion.


"She'd go crazy," the Only and Older Bionic Brother said.


The Mama may be content staying home, but she needs and wants space to roam in the outdoors.  Her gardens are the perfect place and size for keeping her hands happy year-round.


I'm participating in ABC Wednesday, a meme began Mrs. Denise Nesbitt and administered today by Roger Green at Ramblin' with Roger. Today is the letter H. Click here to read other H posts.

  1. One should stay where she's happy. Let the happy hands be happy.

  2. Let her stay there, even with assistance, that's when you have her the longest!

    1. The Mama is "brushing" seeds out of the sunflower. She saves them for the next year's crop.

  6. So lovely to have a Mama with Happy Hands,
    I hope she does Happy Talking as well?
    she always looks so engrossed in her work.
    Does she live with you Su-see or is she living in her own place?
    Tell us more about her earlier life, I love to know about her.
    I bet she's got some interesting tales to tell?
    Best wishes from Di.

    1. Every year since the Husband and I have been living with the Mama, her frowny, grumpy talking has grown less and her happy talking has increased. And, yes, she does have some fantastic stories, which I need to write.

  8. My mom got to stay in her home until her dying breath. I lived with her the last two and a half years to make it so, but the effort was well worth it for both of us. - Margy

    1. That's how I feel, Margy. There are days when the Mama, the Husband, Molly the Cat, or I are gritting our teeth, but that's life.

  9. For a moment I thought the sunflower pod was honeycomb, then my brain kicked in! ... funny how Mother Nature never wastes a pattern.

    1. I thought it was honeycomb, too, the first time I saw a sunflower pod. I wonder what else has a similar pattern.
