Bit of Wisdom

Here is a quote I came across today. To own a bit of ground, to scratch it with a hoe, to plant seeds, and watch their renewal of life--this is the commonest delight of the race, the most satisfactory thing a man can do.... The man who has planted a garden feels that he has done something for the good of the world. Charles Dudley Warner
If you believe global warming is happening, than indeed you are doing your part. Plant a few natives and you will also be helping to balance your little eco-system.
