Planting Gardens

It's almost time to plant gardens, or at least be thinking of doing so.
I came across something to remind us to nurture our daily garden of living. I thought you might like to read it.

Plant three rows of peas:

1. Peas of mind
2. Peas of heart
3. Peas of soul

Plant four rows of squash:

1. Squash gossip
2. Squash indifference
3. Squash grumbling
4. Squash selfishness

Plant four rows of lettuce:

1. Lettuce be faithful
2. Lettuce be kind
3. Lettuce be patient
4. Lettuce really love one another

No garden without turnips:
1. Turnip for meetings
2. Turnip for service
3. Turnip to help one another

To conclude our garden, we must have thyme:

1. Thyme for each other
2. Thyme for family
3. Thyme for friends

Water freely with patience and cultivate with love. There will be much fruit in your life garden because you will surely reap what you sow.
Have a blessed weekend!

Perfect Garden of life. Love this post. Thank you for sharing this.
Thank you for stopping by too and letting me know how your knock out roses did. I am already enjoying them so much. They have bloomed constantly since planted last weekend.
It turned real cold here today, no working outside this weekend.

See you again soon.
Have a great night.
Hugs, Celestina Marie
