This is a story that is being forgotten and remembered at the same time. As the leaves fall from the branches of Harry’s fading memory they turn into the green shoots of Joe’s new stories.

Joe has a new baby sister and nobody wants to play with him. Nobody wants to play with old Uncle Harry either so together they begin to work on Uncle Harry’s garden. Even if Uncle Harry can’t remember ordinary things, he and Joe create a year to remember.
