The plants are loving this rainy Thursday morning,
in the Nations Capital!
Speaking of plants, you need
to check out our diverse selection!
In addition to our magnificent selection of ornamental plants for your garden, we are living true to our word, and expanding our selection of edible and native plants!
We’ve got a huge selection of herbs and veggies,
and we’ve got a truckload of fruit trees, and tons of natives are on their way!
Blueberries, asparagus, tomatoes, basil, zinnias, pansies, begonias, Japanese maples, organic compost, perennials for the sun & shade, pottery and much much more….
LIKE, local, organic compost and potting soil from
Chesapeake Compost Works
(Frank is thrilled about that!)
You NAME it, we’ve GOT it!
(And if we don’t, we’d be happy to try and order it for you!)
Ella Wheeler Wilcox
1850 – 1919
I am the voice of the voiceless;
Through me the dumb shall speak,
Till the deaf world’s ear be made to hear
The wrongs of the wordless weak.
From street, from cage and from kennel,
From stable and zoo, the wail
Of my tortured kin proclaims the sin
Of the mighty against the frail.
Oh, shame on the mothers of mortals,
Who have not stopped to teach
Of the sorrow that lies in dear, dumb eyes,
The sorrow that has no speech.
The same force formed the sparrow
That fashioned man the king;
The God of the whole gave a spark of soul
To furred and to feathered thing.
And I am my brother’s keeper,
And I will fight his fight,
And speak the word for beast and bird,
Till the world shall set things right.
