My Little Garden - Kelli N.

My garden is very small, but still very special in my heart. It is a memorial to a very special kitty. The strange thing about this small garden is a particular rose bush. To most people it would seem a scraggly bush that should be dug up and perhaps replanted in another location. Never more than one flower blooms at a time, but that one flower is always absolutely perfect in shape and has the most amazing aroma. A garden doesn\'t have to be large to bring joy to one's heart -- my little garden with my little yellow rose bush is living proof.

When You Garden, You Grow!

Every April communities, organizations, and individuals nationwide celebrate gardening during National Garden Month. Gardeners know, and research confirms, that nurturing plants is good for us: attitudes toward health and nutrition improve, kids perform better at school, and community spirit grows. Join the celebration and help to make America a greener, healthier, more livable place!

About National Garden Month

Why Garden?

"This is the time for the woodland bulbs to come into their glory. The garden is full of Erythronium which have self seeded around - the most welcome of weeds! Trillium, slower to establish but so well worth the wait, are emerging and Anemone are popping up at the edges of the paths. Above them the early Rhododendrons are starting to flower, Camellia and Magnolia are in full bud and we know that the month will get even better as it goes on."

-- Stella Rankin, Owner, Kevock Garden and Kevock Garden Plants
