There she was, in the window, staring at me as I tidied the garden.
She did not look pleased. She never did.
Twice a week, I’d tend to her landscape…trim the bushes, cut the grass, pull the weeds.
And every time, she’d just stand there, staring at me through the window, looking thoroughly disappointed.
Finally, I gathered the courage to enter the house and confront her,
“I’m doing my best!” I shouted up the stairs.
As I waited for a response, the room grew so cold I could see my breaths.
Nana’s pride and joy was her garden, and even in death, she did not consider my thumb green enough for her standards.
