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.
One day when my husband was watering his vegetable garden - he called to me.. There was a yellow bird flitting in the spray for his hose. Loved diving in and out and trying to catch the spray. Suddenly the bird flew to his hand to rest & go do it again. Such excitement! After turning off the hose he walked to a neighbors To tell what just went on. Suddenly the bird flew over there and landed on his shoulder (looking for more spray). Come to find out it was a parakeet. Must have been a pet that got out. We gave him to a friend who named him after my husband. our garden really attracts different things.
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.
