Yep there she is, my 96 soon to be 97 in July, year old Gram cutting down the lilac bush. Grama Red lives with her 2 daughters and they’re building a new house this summer. Unfortunately the lilac bush is right where the new house will go so it has to go. My Aunt and I was busy clearing a tree line that will also be in the way and we spotted granny coming across the yard on her scooter. She uses it to get to the barn and all around the 40 acres even though she’s spry she still needs the scooter. Grama Red was looking for the tree saw, so when I was done with it I gave it to her.
I thought she was going to take care of it for me but NO she decided to help by cutting down the lilac bush. Now how does a 96 year old woman have enough strength to cut down a bush that size? I had to laugh and say I felt a little guilty just photographing why she did all the work, but she wouldn’t have it any other way she wanted to help out in any way she could.
I got a chuckle out of all the cloths she has on. I was sweating in a t-shirt while working and she was dressed like it was 30 below, but I guess she was the smart one all covered up because I ended up covered in poison ivy and she didn’t. Who’s the smart one now?
