keep on watering....

We've got this gift of love, but love is like a precious plant.
You can't just accept it and leave it in the cupboard or just think it's going to get on by itself.
You've got to keep on watering it.
 You've got to really look after it and nurture it"

John Lennon
The above is from my favorite poet.

I love the idea that love is a precious've got to keep watering it.

So as you water your plants in the heat of this very hot summer, just remember that you are keeping love alive. (smile)


Jan's Horticulture tip : always use a water breaker (instead of a pistol nozzle) and remember the roots need the water - not the leaves...water the roots!
