Tips from the Garden

No occupation is so delightful to me as the culture of the earth, and no culture comparable to that of the garden.   ~Thomas Jefferson~

    Remember mothers, friends and neighbors this month with a plant or cut flowers from your garden. There is still time to dig, divide and pot up your favorite.  Choose an heirloom pot or a colorful new one, and add some cheery ribbon along with your note.   Early bloomers like zinnias alone or mixed with herbs make a nice cut flower presentation.
