How Does Your Garden Grow?
As a little girl, I loved to read Nursery Rhymes. One of my favorites was, Mary, Mary Quiet Contrary . When I asked my mother what contrary meant, she explained that it was a word used to describe someone who didn't do things the way everyone else did. I liked that idea! Being contrary meant you could be different. As the years passed, I realized that Mary was being hard to get along with, she simply wanted a garden that grew wild and free. No neat rows and carefully coiffed hedges for her! Inspired, my garden is a WILD-erness, too! Here are some pictures to brighten your day, along with the poem. Mary, Mary, quiet contrary How does your garden grow? With cockershells and silverbells, And pretty maids all in a row.
