Random thoughts while gardening

Green beans
Random thoughts while gardening...

Time in a garden is measured by days and seasons, not by minutes and hours.


I am morally opposed to tidy gardens. I have decided that a messy garden, with a few weeds and spent blooms is a sign of a happy, healthy gardener who has balance in her life.


Flowers fade like time passes - too quickly. I feel like if I don't go out into the garden everyday, I will miss a bloom or two.


I tried not to think about gardening once ~ that was a terrible five minutes.


Did the plastic forks around the green beans scare the rabbits away, or leave them laughing so hard they couldn't eat the plants?


I wonder all these random thoughts while gardening will take me next?

Good morning!
I do my best thinking in the garden - and praying, too!
Your beans are looking wonderful. On Saturday we ate the first beans from my garden - Kentucky Wonder Pole beans planted April 15.
Have a wonderful week!

Love your random thoughts! Just yesterday while the family was working in the garden my son asked me if it was ok to think about how he would start of his minecraft series (computer game)...I told him that was the beauty of working in the can think about anything you want and let your mind wander!

Everyone asks about the plastic forks in my porch planter (to keep the cats out); now I'm going to think about laughing rabbits every time I look at them:)

Have you ever thought of publishing a book, Carol? Seriously, you have so many gems of wisdom here, I know it would be a popular seller for gardeners everywhere.

I love your thoughts, Carol. I have had a few of those thoughts, too!

Indeed, an addition to that is "The sign of a good gardener is not a green thumb, it is brown knees."
