This article was written for the Star Tribune by Lynn Underwood. She is writing about a granddaughter's sprawling cottage gardens that she used to honor the two grandmothers who have passed down their plants and wisdom. I wanted to look at the photo presented within the article. It shows a very large garden in the foreground and a small cottage in the background. There is purple blossoms and a small inviting path in the photo. I think that even here there is an argument being made. The argument is that this look of a garden in desirable. That the reader should want to live in that cottage with these beautiful gardens, and even as far as that this a sounds way to honor grandparents. I think that the Kiros reinforces the message in this article. It is winter in Minnesota, we have not seen these beautiful colors and lush greens for quite some time now. This may look even more beautiful now than it would in summer months.
