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.
I believe my garden is truly the most special of gardens. My fiance, 16 month old daughter and I live in his grandparents house, 3 houses down from his parents house. Years ago, not only did his grandfather build this house by hand, his grandmother religiously cared for the gardens around the house. His mother had a huge garden beautiful flowers in a beautiful arraingement that blossomed every year....until they were taken over by an unknown weed. SHe wanted to keep her garden going but the weed kept coming back year after year, bigger and bigger. Last summer her and I uprooted all that we could salvage from the weed and transplanted them in the garden beds at her mothers house...where we live now. We now have a beautiful garden contributed from 2 generations and being nurtered by the 3rd. It is very special to us and I hope that I can now teach my daughter how her garden grew.
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
