National Garden Week and Month

Did you know that our country has a National Garden Week? It began in 1986, but this is the first year I've heard of it (oops).

Gardening is a wholesome avocation that encourages appreciation for nature and concern for the preservation and enhancement of our environment. It prompts a genuine respect for those who work in agriculture today. Gardening, above all, provides a special source of fulfillment when foresight, patience, and collaboration with soil and sunlight finally are repaid by lovely flowers and luscious harvests.

This year's designated week is April 8-14, so it's not too late to spread the word about gardening and birdscaping! Heck, the National Gardening Association says all of April is National Garden Month and offers activity tips, including "birds in urban gardens."

Plant some seeds around your abode and thoughts in your neighbors' heads!
