    Well as a gardener you should know the old Chinese proverb (that I recently posted on my own blog):

    “If you want to be happy for a week, get married. If you want to be happy for a month, kill your pig. If you want to be happy for life, plant a garden.”

    You really should add this to your string of quotes!

    Thanks Teri, I will.

    Anon, always love a good garden quote-especially with some good thought behind it. It’ll be on here some day.

    Skan and Jozee thanks for the kind words.

    I just found your blog. I like the part in About Me that says you do not cut grass… My sister is a landscape architect and she always has people ask her to help design their yard, she tells them if you want me to put in a fountain and a concrete retaining wall around your water retention pond and spend more than you make a year doing it fine, otherwise get a good garden book and a shovel. She’s bossy that way and we love her. However, all our (family) yards look like do-it-yourself projects – and so does hers.
