Letter From the Garden

(imagine this spoken in the voice of the rose in Alice in Wonderland)

Dearest Auntie,

We are in desperate need of your tender loving care, your attention to detail in the garden, and your green thumb. Things are in dire condition at this point in time and we're not sure how much longer we can survive like this. Whilst some people (like you) have a special knack in the garden, a talent, a PASSION, it appears our owner has other less than desirable traits (weed aider and abetter, plant neglecter, and TWO brown thumbs...GASP!) and things need to be rectified immediately. We're pretty sure we're on borrowed time at this point; you should see the distateful things growing up around us. I can't express with enough urgency how desperately we need your help...


The plants and flowers in Leah's garden, whom are worthy of far better treatment than they've thus received

PS We're pretty sure Leah would help...We're also pretty sure it's not her fault she's no gardener (she can't help it that it's in her blood!)

PPS Enclosed are some pictures for evidence of what torture we're being forced to endure (Oh, such horror!)

LMAO!!!!!!!! You kill me Leah!

Kellan said...

That was so funny!!! "It's in her blood" - ACK!!! My gardens look pretty pitiful right now too - you are not alone!

Have a good evening - Kellan

Betsy said...

Mine would look that way too, if I didn't live in an apartment with grounds people! lol Good luck with the gardening....

Shari said...

Alas. I am not a natural horiculturist, either. My hubby is the gardener around here. Plants would hide from ne if I were responsible for them. Thanks for the laugh.

Auntie said...

Where were those weeds when I was laying around watching little house on the praire for three weeks while Rosedale D. was flooded. I can feel the dirt under my nails...I want to get YOUR WEEDS! Do we still have the big box of preen in your garage???
We'll need some if you don't.

Ohhhh, you ain't got nothin' on me!! I should post pictures of my "garden"....I don't even know if I should technically even call it a garden. Can you send Auntie my way when she is done there? We have a pool she can use when she is done. :)
