Fairy Tale Friday- Grandmother

This is my last fairy tale in my Classic Tales by Hans Christian Andersen. I’ve enjoyed exploring his tales, some of which were completely new to me.

This week  I read Grandmother. It’s all about an old lady who loves to look at a rose. She keeps it in her hymn book as it makes her relive the past. Grandmother dies and a rose tree is planted in memory of the dear lady. The preserved dust (and Grandmother!) eventually turn to dust, but everyone’s memories of the rose and Grandmother still remain.
