|Pass-along Peony from a neighbor in Virginia|
A few weeks ago there was a gardening supplement in the local paper. One article had a main topic as "Five things every garden needs." When I heard the topic I thought I would ask some gardeners what THEY had as their five.
I asked the question on Facebook's page "Soiled Again", a page that is billed as a 'Common ground for gardeners'. I had a number of responses. Many gave serious answers, others were rather funny. One said , "Her and four burly guys". Had a neighbor come see my garden today and seeing my bales of pinestraw sitting along the garden by the water, said that I needed to borrow her yard guy (her husband!). I will get to spreading them (maybe tomorrow).

Look at this pretty bloom!
What would you include for your five?
