Give Thanks to The Garden Todaycomments (0) November 25th, 2010 in blogs
Happy Thanksgiving to all our readers. I hope this finds you surrounded by loved ones, a decimated dinner table and if you are like me, a football game on.
But before I settle into the couch to watch the annual turkey day pummeling of the Detroit Lions, I’m going to take a walk outside in the garden and give thanks for what God has created. We all lead busy lives with different levels of stress, but how many times have you relieved that by going outside and spending quiet time in your own garden?
If you are like me more times than you can count.
The plants simply go about their business of producing flowers, food or a safe place for animals to nest. They wait quietly for us and when we give them that bit of water, or trim that dead branch they reward us with so much more. Like they do with carbon dioxide, they absorb what ails us and turn it into a breath of fresh air.
So sometime today do yourself a favor. Go outside and take a moment to stop and smell the roses. And give them thanks.

Everyone loves roses. If you always wanted to add roses to your garden but were too intimidated by their diva reputation, Roses Are Plants, Too is the blog for you.
Paul Zimmerman has grown thousands of roses for over 15 years and for ten of those years in a sustainable manner. His common-sense approach shows you how to integrate garden roses into your landscape by looking at them as nothing more than flowering shrubs, all the while encouraging you to trust your own "Gardener's Instincts" in the care of these beautiful plants.
You will learn how to prune and train climbing roses, and how to get the most "ka-bloom" out of your shrub, David Austin and Knockout rose bushes. You'll get tips on growing roses organically and trimming them all season to keep their shape. You'll discover the difference between own-root and grafted roses, and more. Much of the instruction will be via videos that Paul produces himself!
Paul Zimmerman ran a rose care company in Los Angeles before moving to South Carolina to start Ashdown Roses. Now he focuses on rose education and teaching via Paul Zimmerman Roses. He lectures, gives workshops, and judges rose trials around the world, and it is this experience he brings to this blog.
Whether you are new to roses or an experienced grower, Paul will open your garden to the vast diversity our national flower offers.
