29: A Trio Of WishesDell Armistead. In Nana's magical garden, a rainbow of flowers bloom among the verdant green like the dreams and wishes of Dell's three youngest grandchildren, Xander, Zali and Charlie, who love to imagine and play. The children's silhouettes nestle in the green strip-pieced fabrics embellished with shining sparkles to match their energy and joy.
