HA! I thought I was the only one to garden with tough love! I used to joke about threatening my plants when they were not doing well!!!
I look forward all week o Daris' column. He reminds me that in a world where nothing in public life makes any sense at all, there is still kindness and humor to be found in a private life.
My grandma had a Hoya vine that would not produce flowers, to her great disappointment. Then one year she’d had it, “If you do not flower this very year, I am pulling you out.” She declared.
Time passed and I went to visit. I stepped into her porch and sniffed. It was such a lovely smell. Her hoya was not only in bloom, but the most fragrant and delightful blooms, too. That is the year I learned flowers do talk.
