Okay, this was just super! I've just begun gardening but I know how you feel about Bob. What an incredible husband. He may not know about Salvia, but he does know about the relationship of woman or man to tool!

Delightful story. He could have bought a new shovel but he helped revive the old! Lovely insight.

Loved it! Very fun read!
Great work! It is wonderful when those who love us take the time to discover what it really is we want or need rather than taking the easy road. A very fun read.
I laughed out loud--that was great!!!!!!!

This is one of my favorites of the week. As a gardner and a sentimental person I enjoyed this very much. Great job!

Simply great, full of wit and wisdom. You have a fun, easy-reading style that demands an encore. Congratulations on your win, and keep submitting!
This had all the heart of an artichoke. Skilled in an earthy sort of, "name-inanimate-objects" sort of way. Seems like I read somewhere that if you write about verbana you really should know that tomatoes do not like Evian. Nicely crafted piece with just enough guilt to get me out to the garden, where Bertha waits for me to till the soil - one shovel at a time. Congratulations - may Bob serve you well long after the preserves are preserved. -- Ben :o)
