Happy May! Let us have some fun! The old saying goes that "April showers bring May flowers." Thereby this month with be dedicated to a variety of things to do with flowers (and/or gardens, and/or gardening). These may include, but not exclusive to, jokes, hints, notes of interest, quotes and if I can figure out how ... pictures. Perhaps it will "spark" some ideas.

Unwritten rules of gardening ... by David Hobson
1-The best way to garden is to put on a wide brimmed straw hat and some old clothes. And with a hoe in one hand and a cold drink in the other, tell somebody else where to dig.
2-Compost is best aged a little like a fine wine. I mean, would you prefer to drink a nice 97, or something that was made last Thursday.
3-When weeding, the best way to make sure you are removing a weed and not a valuable plant is to pull on it. If it comes out of the ground easily, it is a valuable plant.
4-A weed is a plant that has mastered every survival skill except for learning how to grow in rows.
5-Spring does not arrive until the ice is out of the compost heap.
6-Winter does not arrive until the ice is IN the compost. Until then, all bets are off.
7-Any self respecting rock will break at least one shovel before accepting its new home.
8-A good compost pile should get hot enough to poach an egg, but not so hot it would cook a lobster.
9-Gardening requires a lot of water most of it in the form of perspiration.
Embrace the joy in your day and keep smiling sunshine!
