GREEN THUMB SUNDAY - A GARDEN FOR YOU

I received this from Elsie...I know I've already emailed it to some of you but wanted to share it with you all.


THIS GARDEN'S FOR YOU ONLY

How To Plant Your Garden-

First, you Come to the garden alone, while the dew is still on the roses....

FOR THE GARDEN OF YOUR DAILY LIVING-

PLANT THREE ROWS OF PEAS:

1. Peace of mind 2. Peace of heart 3. Peace of soul

PLANT FOUR ROWS OF SQUASH:

1. Squash gossip 2. Squash indifference 3. Squash grumbling 4. Squash selfishness

PLANT FOUR ROWS OF LETTUCE:

1. Lettuce be faithful 2. Lettuce be kind 3. Lettuce be patient 4. Lettuce really love one another

NO GARDEN IS COMPLETE WITHOUT TURNIPS: !

1. Turnip for meetings 2. Turnip for service 3. Turnip to help one another

TO CONCLUDE OUR GARDEN WE MUST HAVE THYME:

1. Thyme for each other 2. Thyme for family 3. Thyme for friends

WATER FREELY WITH PATIENCE AND CULTIVATE WITH LOVE.

Ruth, I just love that so much!!! So true, indeed!

Every time I see pictures of your garden, I LONG for a beautiful English garden. I wanted one for years. I would love to have plants everywhere, along with a lamp, bench, and a fountain. Every time I mention it, Mark turns green!!! I want a brick path, and he thinks I am already too committed to too many things. I do have a lot to do, but my gardens that I have currently really are low maintenance. How I wish I could "borrow" you for about a month to help me figure this out!!!!
Thank you for sharing your pictures. As always, they are so beautiful!

Hi Ruth,

I think one thing might be missing, It dosn't say anything about slugs in the lettuce bit.

Cheers Mark

Jeanette said...
