Maya Butler de Castro Grandma's garden

Age 8

5-8 year olds

I chose to draw Grandma because I love her. Grandma has a beautiful garden with vegetables, flowers, trees, lizards, possums, birds and insects. Grandma loves taking care of her garden and waters her plants every day. I like to help her water them. I love Grandma’s backyard because there is lots of space to run around, play and go for walks. Sometimes we walk up to see the neighbour’s chickens and we feed them grass.
