My first book review by me; "I found Diary of a Wannabe Gardener to be a delightfully funny, intelligently written love story between garden and woman. I could not wait to jump feet first into a gardening project after reading Mrs. Guyton's finely spun work of humor and mystery. I was left with a renewed sense of hope in God, man, and nature after reading this masterful tale. I look forward to future works by this fresh new talent."
Wow! What a review! It is my first and it is so flattering. I hope all of the other reviews that I receive in the futhure are just as wonderful (hint! hint!). I will post them for you to read as I get them.
Feel free to post a review. I look forward to all honest feedback. Even the fertilizer reviews will help me to grow.

It is muggy and my petunias have gotten leggy. I heard on the news that my rich homey from Kosciusko (Oprah Winfrey) is sponsoring Obama. Well, things are getting interesting. Pray for peace for 2008 because things are going to get out of hand. We are witnessing history people. CAN WE HANDLE HISTORY!

Hello, it's me. This is me in my garden in 2003 when I actually wrote "Diary of a Wannabe Gardener." Yes, I am in my sleeping clothes. It had to be about 7:00 in the morning when this picture was taken. As you can see, I have changed just as much as my garden has. Some of the changes that I have undergone were of my choosing and some were changes that God had in mind for me. Either way, I've changed from year to year for the better or worse.
The plant to my right is a magnificent dinnerplate dahlia. It reached over 6 feet tall that season. I have not had another dahlia to perform that well in my garden since then. The picture was taken in early spring before it became too hot. The garden is not in full bloom. Can you identify any other plants in the picture? In my book, Samantha has difficulty identifying alot of the plants in her garden and just names the plants after people that she knows that the plant reminds her of.

I sprinkled some Epsom salt in my garden. I guess I will be on damage patrol for a while. The one bright point lately is that I have not spotted any snakes in the area. my neighbors horses had been dining on the few sprigs of grass in my flowers. I fixed them with a nice wire barrier.
I am most thrilled that the proofs of my book "Diary of A Wannabe Gardener" arrives tomorrow. I think I will just have some alone time with my book for a while. I will caress it, gaze at it lovingly, just like I do with my other flowers. I will post some more pictures soon. I know there are people visiting me! Why don't you say Hi! Don't be shy. I don't bite, I only torture (smile). If you know of any blog sites of interest, let me know. Later.

I am a yankee doodle dandy. I'm a veteran of the Army that had the opportunity to fight in a war. I can't stand people that encourage fighting. Humans have higher intelligence and should be able to settle things without being physical. Do you fight your wife, children, friends, employer, when they threaten your well being? No! you find some solution that is favorable to your livelyhood and safety. I think we should have the freedom not to go to war so quickly. If the draft was instituted again, many arm chair pro war soldiers would shut up. I am glad that I served my country. and all pro war people should be enlisting now to give our other tired soldiers some rest from war. They have done their duty. Let the politicians fight some now on the battle field. Even Samantha has a comment or two in "Diary of A Wannabe Gardener" when it comes to war. Any vets out there! I am proud to be counted as your peer.
