    This past week mine would be yelling...

    ”Hey! Watch where you’re stepping!!”

    As I’ve been tromping through the gardens stringing Xmas lights on my dwarf spruces and shrubs. Oooops...sorry guys!

  • GardenHo_MI_Z5

    I’ll see if I can get some maz, they are hard to capture...

  • NHBabs z4b-5a NH

    “Plant us already! We are tired of being in pots“


    ”Mmmm . . . . Lovely soil”

    depending on whether I have found a spot for them.

    I picture mine as speaking with a posh British accent! Lol!

  • cooper8828

    I live in a pretty arid place, so pretty sure they would say "Water me, and some shade would be great!"

    Here’s a few maz. Most didn’t turn out..

    Front porch

    Snowman in driveway bed

    Newest addition this year..vintage wheelbarrow bearing gifts...in the (sloped) garden of course :)

    I used to decorate across the whole acre lot, but I no longer have the energy so now I just do around the house.

    Wow, I wonder if my plants would be a mouthy lot? How would I react to them offering 'advice'? Mine could chide me on putting shade lovers in as much sun as I sometimes do, especially the trilliums (which actually seem to do well with that, since they're gone by the time it gets HOT).

    I'm sure at some parts of the year, they'd be 'Wow, you got a towel, I'm always wet!', and others 'Why don't you just leave the hose here?'.

  • mazerolm_3a

    @dbarron: mouthy lot?! Lol!

  • Jay 6a Chicago

    They don't speak in an audible voice. It's telepathic. All Life is connected. They say we need them as much as they need us. They all have their own song that they sing!

  • dbarron

    Jay, when the white van pulls up and people get out, go with them. Try on the funky coat...it's for your own good ;) (just joking..I actually feel somewhat the same way, I feel in touch with them)

    I feel the reproach when they wilt because I haven't watered timely enough.

  • sandyslopes z5b n. UT

    My plants would say: This neighborhood is getting crowded! Didn't you believe we would GROW?!?

    The polite ones would say: Excuse me, pull this grass, please.

    What they would say to each other: So how long ya think she'll stand there with those newcomers in pots until she realizes there's no room for them?

  • dbarron

    Sandy, I have to qualify (for my plants which are in the same sitiation):


    'Oh no, more roommates, will he never stop advertising?'

    'I'm working on my phytotoxicity, why don't you help, you marsh-mallow?'

    'I'm trying to put on weight and just crowd them out.'

    'And I'm trying to reproduce here. My sun, the neighborhood is so competitive.'

    'Look out! The trowel is coming, someone is going to go six inches under!'



    Err, yes, it's early in the morning and I had lucid dreams last night.
