Staying Cool…

On hot, dry days at Rolling Green Nursery, overhead sprinklers can buy us a little time in the morning until we can get the hose on plants that flag first in the July heat.

  1. I think a shrink would have me committed if he heard me talking to my plants, my dragonflies, my fish, my frogs, my birds, especially the hummers and catbirds who seem to really be interested.
    Recently a painter of ours was on a 40 ft ladder, looking down puzzlingly, and asked, “…..’Scuse me…..who you talking to?” I told him, and explained it was therapy….and it kept my plants happy too, as I walked about with my spray wand.
