In this podcast I sat down with my mom to talk a little bit about my grandmother and her relationship to gardening. My grandmother passed away in August 2013 and as I recorded this episode I was kicking myself for not doing something similar with my grandmother while she was still alive. Mom and I could have delved further into gardening talk, not only about my grandmother but about other family members that I did and didn’t know. I will probably have my mom back on in the future to talk a little more about those memories because I think they are valuable to discuss and to tell the stories even if they are from a third person narrative.

- A photo of my grandmother with what appears to be gladiolus.
- Information about schoolhouse lilies
- I found more background information on the Tandy Lake that was mentioned in the podcast. My grandmother wasn’t crazy! It was actually really interesting to go down the rabbit hole of history for that area my parents grew up in. Definitely fascinating to get to know a bit more about Ft. Worth.
+ A very old write-up about the Polytechnic area and the old Poly prairie.Poly alumni page
+ A very interesting website that digs deep into the history of Ft. Worth and a specific page about Tandy Lake and the development of the area.
+Tandy Hills, what’s left of the prairie in Ft. Worth. This is a great park in the midst of suburban Ft. Worth! Very much worth exploring. A few posts I’ve written about Tandy Hills: Fresh Air at Tandy Hills, Nature in the City: Tandy Hills Natural Area, Awaiting Spring at Tandy Hills, Early Spring at Tandy Hills
