Using Words in the Garden

Be wary of words in a garden.  


Welcome?  Don't have it in a 'word', say it with your front door, paint color, light fixture, door mat, plants, & etc.
.
Let 'words' in your garden be subsidiary focal points, amplified in the song of your garden.

I love little signs tucked away in the garden. Like greetings.

Yeah, I put a Welcome sign on the fence to my backyard and I had to take it down. It just didn't feel right. Plants speak better. Don't get me started on plant markers. Grrr.

My writing professors always told us, "Show, don't tell." I think the same thing applies here. Show that your guest is welcome instead of just announcing it.

I love using words in the garden, farm, yard...gives me a smile every time I see them.
