Quote of the day~



Don't judge each day by the harvest you reap,
but by the seeds you plant.

-- Robert Louis Stevenson

(Does anyone besides me seem to have a lot of weeds in their garden?

Just wondering...)

Get you a few dozen heads of cattle hun - they will eat the weeds!

Trust me they mow my yard well!

Hope you guys have a good weekend - do not do anything I would do!

weed in my garden?
i'm not saying anything more without an attorney... unless you're an attorney, mayden

cora-it's hard to pull the 'weeds', isn't it? but this time of year, this year, anyway, it seems to be getting easier..(HUGS)

if i had a tradtional garden, it would most definately have weeds.

but... i have a limited pot garden (not like smokin' pot, like plants in pots)

currently my miniature rose bush is despairingly dead. and so is my in-house orchid (i am a habitual orchid killer).

my impatients for some odd reason are thriving - they've no right to though.

and though the potato vine is lusty, avids have attacked again. argh...i have tried lady bugs and then nuclear sprays - but those avids keep a'comin'!

my sister puts fake flowers in pots on her patio when she gets too busy to garden. i'm not that bad

yet.

i am looking for fake weeds for her garden though.

Baron- If I told you the story of how I begged my parents to let me milk a cow...every summer that we went to Indiana- you would marvel at that fact that I DON'T have one of my own.
I LOVE cows! :)
I did finally get to milk one- perhaps I should tell that story some time??? :) LOL~

Ummm- between you and me and the cows- if I could choose between you and Daniel- I'd pick you :) But seeing how I have NO choice in the matter- we'll just pretend that I'm Miss Moneypenny- ok? LoL :)

/t- I so wish I could see you in a hat! :)
About those weeds of yours...if they make you happy- I'm happy :)

Libby- Yes...they are easier to pull when they seem to die out- but it's all a big joke, because no matter how good the flower bed looks - weed free- in Feb- they ALL come back in April!!! :)

Bird- I love it! Fake weeds! Only in California...fake boobs, noses, chins...and now weeds! (I'm teasing!)
All I've got growing on the deck is a pot with rosemary in it- and I need to plant it somewhere this spring. I put the Hibiscus in the garage (it's taller than I am- which isn't much actually)- and it did well last winter in there.

I like the fake flowers idea :) I might just go that route when all the garland on the deck comes down :)

Schaumi- Thistles and thorns...ouch! Hope your garden is free of those- but we all have a few, don't we???

Any weeds? Just a little crabgrass.

This post reminds me of Johnny Appleseed. My grandmother's property used to have a tree originally planted by him. (Actually, I should re-word that. The tree's still living, the grandmother isn't).

Anyway, it's kinda interesting that a man who sowed so many seeds could be partly responsible for great apple pies a century later.

X. Dell said...

BTW, I'm an admirer, although not a secret one.

SJ said...

Seeds ! Seeds! R.L.Stevenson said "seeds you plant" not weeds :)

puerileuwaite said...

I seem to have a lot of d**kweeds in my garden (of Eden). But I think they deserve more of a certain finger than a green thumb.

I'm kidding of course.

None in my flower beds, and the ones in my grass have hopefully been killed off by the granular Scott's Fall Weed and Feed I applied a month or so ago.

Or were you speaking metaphorically?

Oh, and I'd like to take a shot at your Mack Velvet question, if I may. Obviously the last time you partook, a knife of some sort must have been involved in the soiree.

This is why my rule (more of a guideline, actually) is to no longer drink brown liquor with blondes.

However, drinking blonde pilsners with dark women remains a weakness.

puerileuwaite said...

BTW ... I have a quote as well.

"Don't judge each Saturday night by the harvest you reap, but by the seeds you plant.

- Pug

puerileuwaite said...

Oh, I forgot the closing quotation marks of that quote. I hate when I do that!

"

There. Better.

boneman said...

Got plenty of weeds, but learned from a local farmer to let'em go fer a bit, then till 'em into the earth.
Free nitrogen (and other nutrients) blast.

Unless yer speaking of "weeds" other than the growing type outside.
My goodness, I do have some weeds in my mind, but, I try not to focus on them too much.

Mayden's Voyage said...

X~ I imagine that the cavemen were making apple pies of some sort long before Johhny came along :)
But I love the idea he left some seeds at your grandmothers place :)

Thanks for the admiration...it goes both ways :)

Pug- Mack the knife had nothing to do with it...you are SHOWING YOUR AGE!!! I assumed you were younger than me...now I realize you must be older! 39 and holding perhaps???
LOL!
ANd you have a yard? Dude- you are mid 40's and not a minute less :)

Boneman! Where have you been??? I peeked at your blog yesterday- and no sign of you! Glad to see you here :)

Baron Ectar said...

Hey Hot Stuff - just stopping by to wish you Happy F day - oh I fell out on the floor laughing - you are so on time with things!

DykesDog said...

Yes, yes, yes. Baron told me to read what you put in his comments. I was laughing louder then he was!

kate said...

how about all that <3 OMG!!! hehehe

clever and romantic. hummm perhaps a keeper Mayden!?!

Weeds... idk I live in a freakin jungle... its more like vines and fern... laced together with snakes and geckos! OHHHHHHHHHhh you meant my LIFE... yea that too! *wink

Mayden's Voyage said...

Lux- yes...I know. Weeding mine too~ and some of those roots go deep~
Hugs- and Merry Christmas :)

Baron- All we need to do is come up with a date and a line of greeting cards! LOL!
I may work on this just for fun- once the holiday is behind me! :)

DD- glad you got as good a laugh out of it as I did :)

SJ- I missed you! I'm sorry! Yes- seeds, not weeds...I just got focused on something else! :)


Yes dear Kate- that /t is a keeper- wish he wasn't SO far away! LOL- and he's way up over Montana- so...go figure!

To be sure- the grand affair of my life will be nothing but "text" :)
(This idea might make a good book!)

LOL...yes I was talking about life- and my flower bed out front. It's a disaster. We should trade weekends- one weekend you come up here and help me- and one weekend I'll come help you! :)
Heavens- we'd just sit around and drink...which would be more fun anyway~ :)
Hugs friend! You leave soon- don't you...you are in my thoughts as you travel :)

I got one of those hats, but my son took it, just like my Chicago White Sox hat. Well he can't have the Chicago Bears.


There goes Baron again, not appreciating the finer things in life. I got Daniel Craig on my sidebar too.
