My talent is:

Thumbkin

Obviously, having a green thumb….

My favorite flower is the Rose and you can find them all over my yard.

Out of all of them my favorite is the Betty Boop Rose Bush. She is always in bloom and so easy to grow.

I suppose I get this from my Mom who turned this mining rock pile located in Northern California into a beautiful yard.

Mom's Yard

Or it could be from my Dad who always grew a big garden every year. It was about an acre of corn, green beans, cucumbers, tomatoes, cantaloupe, peppers, asparagus, potatoes, berries, rhubarb, and squash. Hope I did not miss anything  plus fruit trees apples, pears, and peaches. Yum!

Sorry I could not find a picture of my Dad’s garden. I would have to go back many years to find a picture of his labor of love and I have to get to work!

Thanks Mom and Dad for my Green Thumb!
