A dead plant means an opportunity to replace it with something new.
You hang out with people who converse in Latin outside of church.
The nicest thing about December 21 is that winter sowing begins..
You frequently risk a broken axle, strained back, or perhaps incarceration to take home an irresistable rock/boulder you find at the side of the road or at construction sites.
When it rains too hard to work outdoors, you read a garden book.
When you and your plants are thirsty, THEY get a drink first.
You have more than ten species or cultivars of any one genus, and you want more.
You spend more money on your garden than on clothes.
When shopping for a house, you look at the land before the kitchen.
You have the urge to water those wilting, neglected plants in the supermarket.
For at least six months a year, a manicure would be a complete waste of money.
You take great pride in your compost pile. You even show it off to visitors.
You start gardening in the rights of way in front of, behind, or to the sides of the property you own
Saw that on a forum I read and had to share it! Some of them are so true!
I had lunch with a dear friend at a pizza place that is about halfway between our homes. I've always enjoyed the food there, but today there was a fight in the parking lot over a parking spot and it just made me think there must be a better place
Anyways, as were went into our 2nd hour of chatting about trial gardens and new cultivars and making plans for the Chicago Flower Show, it dawned on me that I don't have any other pals that spoke about plants as much as Rose does. I wish I had more gardening friends, but my most of my friends don't have any interest until something bad happens, like the beetles eating the foliage or why their lilacs won't bloom when they prune them every April....
I have to start going to the local garden club, or something. Rose lives 2 hours away!!! It doesn't stop us from getting together, but it is too far to get together as much as we'd like!
Do you have a garden pal that lives near you?
