Garden Sayings

There are so many different types of gardens, and they are all unique to the gardener that created each of them. Just as the inside of our homes is a reflection of our personality, so it is in our gardens.
In my gardens you will see several different signs that I crafted from old barn board. Each one says something different.
Over the years, I have collected several other sayings and have kept them in a file for that special gift or project. I thought that today I would share a few of them with you. Perhaps one will touch your heart and you can make a piece of garden art to put it on....if you do...I will expect to see a post about it!
