Grandma's Garden

My grandma was great at documenting the existence of her grandchildren.  She was very proud of all of us and loved us a lot.  Here she has an old stool that she made in her later years; this is not something that was part of my childhood, but this is one of the pieces she painted that I think she was really proud of--partly because it include almost all of her grandchildren (one is missing) and also because it took a lot of effort for her to complete.  By the time she painted this, her hands were giving her difficulties, and she couldn't paint as well as she liked.  
In chronological order:

Grandchildren: Shannon, Aaron, Dawn, Heather, Jesse

Great-grandchildren: Paige, Brittani, Raine, Sofia, Braydon, Maya, Ben, Blake (the only name absent; I think the yellow flower is his).
