Cari, Cari, Quite Contrary…

How does your garden grow??

Well, we’ll see.   Operation: Get a Green Thumb is underway.

A couple weeks ago my mom, brother and sister-in-law came to help me plant flowers.   And by “help” I mean they did it all for me.  My mom researched and bought a pre-planned assortment of plants.

The title of this post obviously comes from a nursery rhyme.  But it also reminds me of my friend’s brother who, when we were about 8 or so made up this little ditty:

Cari, Cari, Quite Contrary
Shave those armpits
Oh so hairy

nice, huh?

  1. your yard is looking good!
    we used to sing to my brother:
    michael, michael, motorcycle,
    turn the key and watch him pee.
    he hated it w/ a passion (which made it all the more fun to say).
