I am but a mere & humble servant of the Lord with an extreme passion for 'earth' & a sincere desire to lend assistance to whomever crosses my path with whatever experience, knowledge & wisdom that I possess. After all, isn't that what we're all here for? To live, learn & share.
Which is exactly why I retired from one job and took 1/2 pay cut. Now I get to have days on my knees digging in the dirt and being constantly in awe of the wonderful creation around me. A job that often truly is a "walk in the park." Simply driving (or walking) past a flower bed does not allow one the experience of holding a single flower up close to admire the intricacy of a Supreme design. And sharing it with others. Everyone should try that.
BTW- I hate to throw a perfectly good plant away at season's end but commercial pragmatism mandates doing so. But if someone happens to be walking past I have the priviledge of unexpectedly sharing a quickly put together bouquet while planting 50 or 100 more plants for yet another opportunity.
If it's worth doing, it's worth doing right. If you wouldn't put your name on it, it ain't done right!
