Gardens and Meredith with Monarchs

Tom's Garden

Recently I have been seeing post from my blogging friends about how they have been working on their gardens. I figured I probably should post something about my garden that I have!! This photo was taken of my garden in my back yard which does require pruning of weeds. I spend absolutely no time planting any flowers but somehow these flowers always find their way growing in this garden of mine.

Meredith from NBC’s Today Show did a wonderful story on the Monarch Butterfly! I don’t normally post things that I see on tv but this was worth letting everyone know about (if you didn’t see it).  For more info on her visit to the Monarch butterflies wintering grounds, please check out the Meredith Vieira Today blog

  3. Mon@rch–I saw the promo on the Meredith story on monarchs. I agree with Marg–any education is good if it helps people to respect all life.

    On another note–I nominated you for a Thinking Blogger award in my latest post. You have done so much to educate me.

  4. I love forget-me-nots. My garden is overgrown with them and they are in the lawn. I clean them up after they finish blooming.

  7. We once had a crocus growing out from between two stairs. I wouldn’t remove it despite my wife’s urging. The dogs, however, took the matter into their own hands (err, paws), and ate it, so the problem was solved. Strange how those things get there, huh?

  8. Great choice of planters Monarch… looks for all the world just like a sidewalk crack. How’d you do that? (smiling, I am… I have more growing like that than I plant too)
