More Favorites

6. Favorite Holiday - I love all that comes with Thanksgiving and how people seem to take a minute to think about all the blessings we have to be thankful for, but I have to say that Christmas is my favorite. I love the songs, the decorations, giving gifts, and the food. I also love getting together with family and friends. 7. Favorite Candy Bar - This is an on again off again favorite. My favorite right now is....

8. Favorite Potato Chip - Chips are my favorite snack of all. My very favorite are...

9. Favorite Flower - I love flowers. My Granny loved flowers, and she always let us help her water the flowers when we spent time with her. I love three flowers in particular.My Granny always had geraniums on her front porch. They were so big and beautiful. She had a green thumb - she could grow anything. Then in the fall, she would break off stems from the geraniums and "root" them so she could have them again the next year. I always plant geraniums in the spring because of Granny.Granny also had buttercups in her yard. We dug up bulbs from her yard, so we now have Granny's buttercups in our yard now. I'm always so excited when they buttercups come up in the spring.

Granny also had roses in her yard. She loved roses. Mother has the same rose bushes in her yard. All Granny would do is stick a branch from a rose bush into the ground and amazingly it would grow. Daddy can do that now. Mother and Granny always wanted a yellow rose bush. Hopefully Mother's yellow rose bush will live. Granny always said that the soil must be wrong in Cherokee for yellow rose bushes. I had lots of rose bushes at our blue house, but so far I haven't been able to find a good place to plant roses at our house now.
