Gardening 101

I went to a gardening enrichment class the other night and learned quite a bit!   But I thought I'd take this opportunity to share what I have learned from gardening on my own.

1.  Don't mistake hundreds of little slivers with leg hairs.

2.  Rocks are stronger than gardening shovels. 

3.  If you buy a big bag of assorted bulbs from Wal Mart, it's possible that some of those bulbs are very pretty hydrangea.

But it's also possible (and just as likely) that they're onions.

P.S. Shave your legs please. :P

Maybe you could make some hydrangea soup.

So they really were onions? HAHA! At least you got some food out of it! Here is a comment about the tea party:
I thought you were trying to say that you were the lady in the blcak dress. I was a little confused. That would have been funny. Your signs look great.

Just an FYI so you don't ever embarrass yourself on a quiz show about gardening, it isn't a hydrangea, that is a beautiful bush that has big full blooms in a similar color, what you have is a hyacinth, which smells heavenly.
I'm a gardening nerd. I admit.

I was about to say that, yes, hyacinth. I think I may have led you astray. Sorry. My mom gave me some bulbs last year and I'm sure she called them hydrangea, so I told you that's what was growing in that spot. They came up hyacinth. huh. I can't believe you planted onions and hyacinth. Way to go Wal-Mart!
