You Said It

Victory Garden

A reader sent this to us with this description: “Attached lies the story of a girl who grew up in suburbia with her grandparents. She has an imaginary friend whom she pieced together over time (but she hasn’t quite imagined the eyebrows quite right yet). The garden is her favorite place, one that she can always retreat to.”
