Here's mud in your eye....oops!!!

Garden quotes for you from the website:

*  If you have a garden and a library, you have everything you need."  -Marcus Tullius Cicero

* A garden is a grand teacher.  It teaches patience and careful watchfulness; it teaches industry and thrift; above all it teaches entire trust." - Gertrude Jekyll

* A book is a garden, an orchard, a storehouse, a party, a company by the way, a counsellor, a multitude of counsellors. " - Charles Baudelaire

The Garden Dance  - by Marilyn Panton

Look at you my dirty child
Your jeans, your shoes, your shirt
You've dug and plowed and planted rocks
Your clothes are made of dirt.

The garden mud is on your face
Your garden gloves all grime
You've tickled worms and battled weeds
You've had a great, great time!

Pull off your shoes, drag out the hose
A soapy dance you'll do
Good-bye mud, hello clean
Happy Garden Dance to you !  (c)
