The children began to work very hard shoveling, planting and watering.
Soon I learned it was going to be called "Gloria's Garden."
On the day we handed out the Christmas gifts to the children, the garden was dedicated. In one corner was a small space that had been cleared away for a little avocado tree. The young plant was handed to me for a ceremonial digging and planting.
Anyone who knows me knows I love avocados. Especially the ones that grow in Uganda.
So now there is a garden named for me, and it appears to be thriving. Melissa recently sent these pictures. They make me smile.
