Botanical studies...

Mother Nature had some things to tell me
this morning during my weekly tree watering. 
She said I need to listen carefully, 
because she had no intention of shouting,
or spelling anything out.  

Just because you get your feathers singed, 
it doesn't mean your goose is cooked.  

There's a time to work and a time to rest.
Know which is which. 

Sometimes, the fruit of your labor has thorns.
Proceed with caution.

Always clean up one mess before you start making another.

When times are hard, being tough is more useful than being pretty.

You don't accomplish as much when you go it alone.

The grass is greener over the septic tank for a reason.

Sometimes wonder is the correct response.

Being called a weed doesn't make you one.

Take nothing for granted.


  1. How true, how true! I love the way you presented these wise words, Jan. Words of wisdom! love it.


  2. What a great post!
    Have a wonderful weekend.


Thank you very much for stopping by.
