Don't get any funny ideas!

From one comes many

The best thing about plants is from one comes many. That is to say, I can make many plants by selective vegetative propagation. Take this Coleus for instance...I mean, take a few clippings, not the whole thing.

Maybe just a piece or two here and there. Snip them off and set in soil or water and allow them to take root and you have a new plant. Don't believe me?

Nearly Wordless Wednesday: Orchids in Bloom


Orchids in bloom is not to be confused with Violet's in Bloom. It's just a way to kick me out of the winter doldrums. I'll let you know if it works.

Seed sharing and gardeners go together

Seed sharing and gardeners go together, as you well know. It's what we do. I suppose we all have a tiny bit of Johnny Appleseed within us. We just want our favorite seeds planted and growing all over the world. Nothing wrong with that!

Resistance is futile and not just for Star Trekkers

As they say in those Star Trekking shows, resistance in futile and never more so than in my case. No, I don't mean I'm turning into a koolade drinking Borg...but, you know...almost...

I tried to resist...really I did! But Uncle Mac and his garden shed buddies had other ideas.

I finally found Nemo!

It took some time, but I finally found Nemo!



Granted, I had not been very diligent about looking for him...

What started me writing is Harry Potter



I was asked recently, when I posted a short story on one of my other blogs, Glory's Short Stories what started me writing.  My friend Joan asked, “How did you learn to write such good love stories? Or any stories?”
Inspiration for writing

The first thing to pop into my head was Harry Potter and his creator JK Rowling. I suppose you would think that utterly bizarre, but it is the truth; I started writing after reading those books*. As I have said before, I love children's literature; Anne of Green Gables, Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan, The Secret Garden and so many others. I loved reading those, but they didn't inspire me to write. The Harry Potter series did. That is to say, JK Rowling encouraged me to do as she did.

Does Peter Pan love Kid's books?

I'm such a little kid...I mean I'm just like Peter Pan (Patty Pan?) Anyway, what I mean is I LOVE kids' books!

 Wait...does Peter Pan love kids' books? Surely he must! Wendy used to read to him all the time-- without her knowing it, of course-- and they must have been kids' stories which she told. Don't know what it is about them, but kids' books are fantastic.

It was children's stories which were the start of my writing career, but I'll tell you about that some other time.

Nearly Wordless Wednesday: Moon rise

While the sun was setting on the wild life refuge, just across the road you could see the moon rise. It was a delightful sight!

Free Seeds!

Free seeds! Free seeds for the garden! Veggie seeds for free!
You may not get your seeds tucked into a nice gift bag, but still...it's a good deal!


Yes, you too can have free seeds for your garden.

No-no-no! I'm not going to teach you how to steal, borrow, take or pilfer the vegetable seeds you want. This is even easier than that. You just need to run over to Uncle Mac's Garden shed and beg pretty please. How? Just make a comment and leave it to the whim of fate...or something. It's a Garden give-away free-for-all! YAY!
