In honor of your inner gardener on the first day of spring, here’s a photo of First Lady Lady Bird Johnson’s ceremonial garden shovel and trowel. Our Presidents
In a remarkable coincidence, the above picture of Lady Bird planting pansies appeared on the internet on the very day that your blogger Suzette bought a 6 pack of pansies from the garden section of Home Depot. Lady Bird and I are in tune.
BREATHLESS GARDENING UPDATE! After YEARS of searching for just the right kind of watering can and coming up with only crappy base model plastic ones or ridiculous metal ones at the same cost as an iPhone, suddenly the kind I want is everywhere at a reasonable price. this is the one I’m going to get:
I am totally willing to spend $25 bucks on a watering can because the rose is made of metal. Also, I love that big round handle like a steering wheel. Can you not just see me flooding out a Mexican turtle every morning with that thing? Start swimming, El Cabron.
FYI – I would never be friends with a woman like the one pictured holding the watering can. Too intense. Probably has her bathrooms cleaned every day by 8am. Not my type.
