Knowing grass, I can appreciate persistence.”

"Come sit with me in the garden, my friend

and look at all the lovely memories

we've made."

To make a Prairie, it takes a Clover and one Bee..... Helen Dickinson 1830-1886


Plant flowers, Herbs and Vegetables for the bees and wasps---they are endangered,

and we NEED them

If you limit your actions in life to things that nobody can possibly find fault with, you will not do much.
