Her Garden at the Rooftop

I was watching her tend to her plants. I liked watching her prune the leaves carefully. I can still remember her outline, hunched in a corner, focusing on another plant, this time a malunggay tree she planted a while back.

At least, I think it was a malunggay tree, but it could be something else.

This was one of my earliest memories of her. I associate anything plant-related with my paternal grandmother. I guess you could say that she was the one who introduced me to the world of flora.

I want to gather as many memories of her as I can, especially those one-of-a-kind experiences we had when I was younger. I want to remind her of all the things she did when her memories are starting to fail her.

I want her to remember the beauty of her plants, particularly the flowers she used to have. I want to tell her stories like this, me spending a few minutes with her and her small rooftop garden.

Hello, I Am Back!

Hello everyone! How are you?

I feel like I was gone for a long time.

It has been three months since my last post.

A lot of things happened.

A few of my family members got sick because of the virus and we had to focus on helping them get well. I know I said that a lot was in store for this blog at the start of the year. Do not worry, I am back and I will resume on those things.

I would like to say thank you to new readers of my blog.

I know there’s not much here but you chose to follow this blog.

Take care!

J.
