Ronan preferred his apartment home to his Granma's big old house. His Mama and Dada had insisted they go and live in Granma's home till his vacation was over and Granma got better. His Mama had told him endless stories about how she and her friends played in the wonderful garden but the garden was now overgrown and there were more weeds than flowers. Ronan hated it and he sat in his bedroom with his toys. He was halfway through an interesting experiment with his LEGO blocks when his Granma called him. He left the blocks in his room and went to Granma's room. She was bedridden now and told him that Ronan and his Mama should help Kusum clean the place up. Granma told Ronan how her garden was beautiful once upon a time and how now it was all grey and ugly.
