The Gardener’s Greeting

Be content with who you are and all that you have. Accept that, and the whole world is yours.
Music – no-worries

Who would have thunk it?
Useless facts until you need useless facts.

Try not to be too alarmed about having a messy garden lawn – you support the bees.

Bees provide one of every three bites of food. They provide pollination services for most of the food we eat.

Songbirds consciously control their calls.

Crazy Cat Lady labels are a myth, and it is a scientific fact that those who keep cats are less likely to be anxious or lonely and find it easier to form beneficial friendships than those who do not own any pets.

Emoji users who plant these cute symbols into their dating profiles have higher success ratios than those who do not. Emojis are crucial to communicating their desires.

Spiders hatched in rugged and stormy environments tend to display more aggression than those hatched in milder climates. They are calmer and more laid back, while others are more prone to stress and keener to bite.

I know, right!
Who would have thunk it?

Honey, grab some pollen please—
It’s time to feed the baby bees.
Honey, don’t forget your comb;
You should reflect well on our home.
Honey, we need a larger nest—
A hollow tree would be the best.
You’ll have to build it all yourself
Cuz I’m gonna sit here on my shelf
Being as queenly as I know how…
Honey, did I hear a bear just now?

      1. I have another poem of yours coming out this Saturday Eugenia on a new Saturday series.

        I have decided to stop the season of The Garden Dawdler till l can dedicate more time to answering responses.

        I have a small series called Saturday Greetings starting to act as a stop gap 🙂

      2. Thank you for letting me know. I understand how a popular prompt like The Garden Dawdler can become overwhelming as it grows. Sometimes, my weekly prompt seems very time consuming.

      3. It’s actually easier if readers currently respond in the comment section where l can answer directly, but l also understand and welcome external postal publishings, but l am very aware at times at time restrictions and l feel guilty if l am taking up to two to three days to respond. So for the time being the Dawdler will finish the season, at least until we get the main bulk of the seedlings into the ground and can afford to take a breather.
