News Herald Garden Exchange

46 degrees, wild winds, snow, sleet and rain. Isn't this insanity?
I'll trade you a lamb's ear for a pair of gloves. Isn't this madness?
You wouldn't believe how many people showed up with their little red wagons. Isn't this craziness?
No complaints here. We had Krispy Kreme donuts and Krispy Kreme coffee. Free!
This is our Betty in Barbara's van with a list of plants to exchange (give away). Betty wrote us a poem . "A Riddle for You".

There's something about a five letter word,
that thrills me to the core.
It poses possibilities of beauty and much more.

Blooming from that little word,
It's hard to realize,
The scope and breadth of wonder,
you can see before your eyes.

You never get enough of it, it's touch is satisfying,
and the product of that little word is very gratifying.

It offers life to oh, so much of which you can behold,
Purple, red or green or orange, blue or pink or gold.

You 're getting close, can't think of it?
Now don't you frown or scowl,
Go find your favorite garden tools,
and place in hand a trowel.

Neither Barb or I guessed right, our brains were frozen and we kept saying why is it we are here. Betty is lots of fun to be with and Barbara did a lot of work getting all the plants together and labeled.

I hope you too did something today that was totally goofy. It's always good to laugh at yourself. Happy Saturday.

Happpy Saturday to you! I sure would love going to a plant exchange like that. It is very windy and cold here with a little rain now and then but thankfully no snow yet anyway!
