You might be a gardening geek on Valentine’s Day if…
Your co-workers call you over to their desks to help identify the flowers and plants they got on Valentine’s Day. Bonus points if you know what those flowers and plants are.
You wonder if the flowers you got for Valentine’s Day count as blooms for Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day on the 15th. Bonus points if you count them for Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day.
You start to worry because it is already Valentine’s Day and you haven’t purchased all your seeds yet. Bonus points if you have purchased all your seeds.
You specify “no candy, please” because you are worried you are showing symptoms of GRTH and it will keep you from being the gardener you want to be in the spring. Subtract points if you hold to that.
When your Valentine suggests shopping for a gift at a jewelry store, you steer them toward the local garden center instead. Bonus points if you got a Valentine’s Day gift from a garden center. Triple bonus points if the staff at your local garden center was able to tell your Valentine what you wanted.
The only red thing you want for Valentine’s Day is a pair of red-handled Felco pruners. Bonus points if you also hint that you want the matching holster.
In other words, when Cupid shot an arrow at you, were you standing just a little bit too close to some plants?
Happy Valentine’s Day from the gardener at May Dreams Gardens
