Day Twenty Four. Today marks the end of our Twenty Four Days of Giveaways.
We started more than three weeks ago because I felt like we all needed a distraction, something to focus on other than shopping during a pandemic, other than watching Covid press conferences, other than the usual 2020 a year in review stuff.
For twenty four days, I have asked you to write a few lines, anything really, as long as it's meant to pick people up. EASY. Right? Well who knew you guys would pour your heart and soul into this little project. By day three I thought, we have to publish this as a real thing, like a book not just a blog page. Reading the comments made me laugh, ponder new ideas, realize I’m far from alone in how growing makes me feel, and I'll be honest, maybe a tear or two here and there. You guys really made this little giveaway idea something BIG!
If you ever need a little pick me up, return to any of the December blogs and listen to what others wrote. You’ll be so glad you did. A collection of Canadian gardeners from coast to coast leaving wisdom, musings, advice and anecdotes...gives me goosebumps just saying it.
So in honour of YOU, today I am asking that you write ANYTHING. That’s right ANYTHING, as long as it's meant to pick people up. EASY.
I will select TWO random comments and give each a $100 Stems Gift Card. Day 24 of our Twenty Four Days of Giveaways is all about you. So leave a comment below and know that you have touched many people with your words so far, and I have appreciated every single one of them. The contest is open for December 24th, and will close at midnight December 24th PT.
If you know anyone who would enjoy this connection, please share.
Please note: If your comment doesn’t show up right away, don't fret; we have a spam filter that requires we approve comments before they are published.

The garden season never ends. Even as I put the outdoor garden to bed I’m excited to start using greens and branches to decorate outdoor pots and indoor table tops for xmas.

Yes, I was Grandpa’s shadow in the garden. As a young child, Grandpa and I spent many hours in the garden. He encouraged me by handing me a hoe and I prided myself in that I was Grandpa’s little helper. As he enjoyed the garden, so did I; rather so do I still. That is where this passion of gardening began.
Back in those days, I hoed a few radishes, a few carrots and a few weeds. Grandpa never scolded me about those radishes or carrots. Within time, I learned what was weeds and what was not. My love of gardening came from him. It connected us in a meaningful manner. Everyone admired his garden. There he stood in his straw hat, farmer green shirt and green overalls with suspenders and Wellington boots, sweat pouring down his face. He was in another world when gardening. It took him to a place of appreciation; a place of reverance and peace. He was truly a steward of the land. It was his connection to nature, time where he could just remain in the present moment. Many years ago, he passed, I continue on loving the garden in his honour. As I continue sharing his gift of gardening with others, hopefully someone will shadow me and love gardening such as we have always. Perhaps, someone will share this gift with other shadows. There is peace, understanding and reflection in gardening; it is our therapy where words are not spoken but where our hearts are full.
