thought you folks might enjoy this on a monday morning.. my teacher emailed me these : Since many of you are currently planning your gardens, I thought you might enjoy the following (tongue-in-cheek) definitions from "Gardening: A Gardener's Dictionary" by Henry Beard and Roy McKie: "Perennial: Any plant which, had it lived, would have bloomed year after year." "Fruit: General term for a seed-bearing part of a plant that is eaten by birds or worms, drops off, rots, gets funny spots, isn't what was pictured in the catalogue, tastes like a glove, or doesn't appear at all." "Bulb: Potential flower buried in autumn, never to be seen again." and, a personal favorite, "Drought: Weather immediately following planting."
