Happy Friday! Spring has officially arrived! you have officially survived yet another round with Old Man Winter! With spring in the air, it seemed like a good time for a little gardening humor.
This spring I have decided to get serious about gardening. But there is a bit of a mystery. Every time I go out to my flower beds it looks like someone has dumped additional soil on them. I am clueless as to who is doing; the plot thickens.
I am hoping that I can grow as much green stuff in my garden as I do in my refrigerator.
Since I am relatively new to gardening I have accepted the fact that I will most likely be learning by trowel and error.
When I went to the garage looking for my light, spring jacket I discovered that I had left a packet of seeds in one of my pockets and it had into a Chia jacket!
Just yesterday I went to Lowe’s to buy some gardening supplies. At first I found the gardening section to be a hosta environment. But then I saw Michael J. Fox! I am pretty sure it was him, he had his back to the fuchsias.
I did purchase a couple of fruit trees and to help me get started they even threw in some insects to aid with pollination. Yep, they were free bees.
On my way out I ran into a research assistant who had not been able to do any plant experiments, it appears that he hadn’t botany.
However, I do have a fear of roses. I realize, for a gardener, this is a thorny issue. I’m not sure what it stems from, but it seems that I am stuck with it.
Did you know that in some conifer forests, you can’t cedar wood for the trees?
Thought for the Week
“It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade.” ~Charles Dickens, Great Expectations
After a speech in Illinois, I was signing books and a young man wanted to talk about growing tomatoes, which was fine. In all seriousness, he said, “I get confused about which kind is which. There’s the indegenerate and then the just plain degenerate! But which are the good ones?”
