National Garden Month

This is My Garden

To help celebrate National Garden Month 2006, we've invited our visitors to share their garden tales with us. We hope you'll find inspiration in their stories and appreciate the pride of your fellow gardeners.


Garden Babies - Marsha K.

My yard is my garden. As time and money permit, I add a bed here or a plant there. I often rescue plants from friends or relatives who think one has died or doesn't fit where it is or they don't like it - whatever. It seems each plant has a story. That's one reason why I will never move to another house. How could I leave my "babies?"

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?

"Tree buds swelling, Birds singing, sweet fragrances and warm breezes stirring. These are all part of Spring's renewal. Our chance to be a part of Natures's beauty and a bonanza of beautiful color, texture, fragrances, and the bounty of flowers, fruits and vegetables from our Gardens. Our chance to renew our spirit and energy!

-- Dave Rhyne, Manager, Gardens of Sunshine Hollow
