I like a good dose of humor just about anywhere and anytime. The garden is no exception. In fact the garden is an excellent place for humor since we often work so hard and things don’t always turn out the way we planned or envisioned them. Humor helps to keep us from getting discouraged and to not take ourselves too seriously. After all the whole garden experience is meant to be enjoyable and fun.
There is no shortage of garden decor ideas to buy or make and many include a garden quote or saying which can put a smile on the readers face. I like to tuck these in and around the garden where they can be discovered almost by accident.
This one always gets a nod. Seems like whenever someone comes over to see your garden, that’s the day nothing seems to be blooming.
This is a cute little sign for the shady corner of the garden.
These two signs often hold visitors attention a little longer because they have to do a little thinking of their own.
WHY DID I BUY UM
PLANT UM Did you get them.?
And then there are garden signs that just welcome your visitors. This one is special to me as my niece made it for me when we first built our garden shed many years ago. It has held up beautufully. She must have put a hundred layers of coating on it.
