Life is indeed a garden for a gardener and my family and friends managed to find a few gifts for me that relate to gardening. For those of you who know gardeners, consider this a jump on the list of suggestions for next year’s holidays.
This “Life is A Garden, Dig In” ornament seems like one that perhaps I should hang up someplace year around. “Sister with the Homestead” got me this. My, my, she knows me well.
I also got several of the ornaments in the “Snowmen of Winter Garden” series from Hallmark. One of my neices had my name in the family gift drawing. She was so clever! In addition to the hoe ornament that I posted about previously, she got me this 2007 ornament to “commemorate” another year of gardening with rabbits.
I hope I’ve learned enough in the past year about how to outwit the rabbits in my garden so that in 2008 I can sharpen some other gardening skill besides rabbit trapping.
I hope to learn how to best use my new garden tool!
And while I wait for spring, I have at least one new garden book to read, Helen Dillon’s Down to Earth With Helen Dillon.
I also got this “universal plant identification” sign.Every gardener can use one of these, no matter how good their record keeping is. We’ve all got some unknown plants in our gardens, that we have no recollection of buying or planting.
I did get many other gifts not directly related to gardening, including a collection of different flavors of tea.I was relieved when I read the nutritional content and saw that these teas contain no crab. That’s good because I don’t like crab in my tea.
I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas!
