Do You Have A Garden That You Really Love

June 10, 2020 Do you have a garden that you really love? One that you don’t mind digging in? You don’t even mind if the Ladybugs eat it That only kills your aphids dead. I love my garden! I love my garden! My garden is full of Aphid juice. Do you have a weed patch that you really love? One that you don’t mind digging up. You don’t even mind if the neighbors hate it. That only makes you plant some thistle. I love my weed patch. I love my weed patch. My weed patch is full of Groves of thistle. Do you have a garden that you really love? One that grows in the middle of a weed patch? You don’t even mind when you host a garden party That only grows a garden rash. I love my weed garden! I love my weed garden! My weed garden grows My neighbor's rash. Do you have a lawn garden that you really love? One that is full of white top, dandelions, and morning glory? You don’t even mind who lives next door That only makes it funner still. I love my lawn garden. I love my lawn garden. My lawn garden's made of noxious weeds. Do you have a garden that is full of flowers? One that is beautiful and lush? Yes, you say? Well, plant a Cottonwood tree!

Except when it's a planter box. Later, gator.

I do! I do! I do! Mine is dedicated to the milkweeds, globe thistles and chicory, just yesterday I hung a sign out front explaining my wild patch for the neighbours "birds & bees garden". I would love a cottonwood too! Enjoyed this, deliriously so. Have a great day! ~Maureen

Thank you, dear. Weedscapes are the norm here on the Wasatch Front. Might as well look for the silver lining!
