I would like to suggest a new microbadge/ badge:

Grandparent Thank You!
At our ranchiito we do NOT keep bees.
They and other critters grace us with their presence, and we provide for their need to the best of our abilities.

Lavanda: I think most of the microbadges are geared towards gardening, specific plants and the areas where we garden ... although I do see cat lover and dog lover badges and since many grandparents enjoy gardening with their grandchildren it would probably be a popular badge ... I wonder if there's a photo somewhere tiny enough to depict a grandparent that would show up as a badge? A little gray-haired person wearing glasses and holding a bloom comes to mind. Green Grin!

In which case it could also just designate an old gardener! I rather interpret some of the badges in my own way rather than how they are labeled... For example, I bought the dragonfly to represent my farm pond (the pond waterlily was just not appropriate for me), and I also have the cat badge which I consider 'has or tolerates cats' rather than 'cat lover' - ha ha.
I want to live in a world where the chicken can cross the road without its motives being questioned.

LOL, Rolling on the floor laughing I don't have any grandchildren but I'm an old gardener so I guess that badge work for me too. I have the cat and dog lover badges because we used to have a lot of kitties and now a dog. I need the toad/frog badge cause I love those little critters too ... except for the invasive Cuban Tree Frog which is displacing so many of our littler critters here in Fla.

I had thought about a cameo/silhouette of an adult with a child or children. It could also signify a "mentor" ...
