AGardener's Little Obsession...

Gardening is a kind of disease.

It infects you, you cannot escape it.

When you go visiting, your eyes rove about the garden; you

interrupt the serious cocktail drinking because of an irresistible

impulse to get up and pull a weed.

 ~ Lewis Gannit


  1. Oh dear it sounds as though I am seriously infected - love that quote!

  2. funny quote! i sometimes have wondered, while i'm bent over in someone else's garden, whether it's rude to pull their weeds. as guess as long as you know your weeds!

  3. other people's weeds - OPW - are definitely fair game except, of course, if you pull cut down their hellebores as one guy once did to my garden....

  4. Hi Jan,
    I don't know if you interview others for your blog, but I think my story and products would be a good fit for your audience. I’m a "garden junker" artist with a passion for using recycled materials. If you’d like to hear more about my story or would like to interview me for your blog, just let me know. Thank you so much!
