I found this and wasn't sure to post it with the flower humour so I thought I'd start a new thread-

Two older ladies were sitting on a park bench outside the local town hall where a flower show was in progress.
One leaned over and said, "Life is so boring. We never have any fun anymore. For $5.00 I'd take my clothes off right now and streak through that stupid flower show!"
"You're on!" said the other old lady, holding up a $5.00 bill.
As fast as she could, the first little old lady fumbled her way out of her clothes and, completely naked, streaked through the front door of the flower show.
Waiting outside, her friend soon heard a huge commotion inside the hall, followed by loud applause. The naked lady burst out through the door surrounded by a cheering crowd.
"What happened?" asked her waiting friend.
"Why, I won first prize for Best Dried Arrangement."

We call them "Hezzie Tators."

I heard about people talking to their plants so I went out and bought one.
I haven't watered it for a week now.
Oh it'll talk. Eventually.

Why do potatoes make good detectives?
Because they keep their eyes peeled.

I'm a gardener and I'm OK
I sleep all night and I plant all day!
I dress in grubby clothing, and hang around with slugs.
Oh I'm happy in the garden
With dirt and plants and bugs . . .

Q: Where did the vegetables go to have a few drinks?
A: The Salad Bar.

Q: What do you get when you cross an onion with a donkey?
A: 99 times out of 100 you get an onion with long ears. But, 1 time out of 100, you'll get a piece of a$$ that makes your eyes water!

1 - gotta stay clean, washing is definitely a necessity..

2 - I've found that when you try to talk to people about your passion for horticulture, if they are not interested they probably won't listen and will quickly change the subject. I have made the attempt to talk to friends about my "wonderful plants," and they are like, "yea, sure, how bout that weather we've been having?"

3 - wearing your garden boots into a restaurant, not cool at all.. I'm usually headed straight to the shower after serious gardening, unless I'm tending to my indoor plants, in that case, garden boots aren't needed.

4 - I don't even talk to my own plants, I'd probably be more inclined to talk to friends plants because I'd be asking the plant if it wants to get out of this "abusive relationship" LOL ... cause we all know how some friends don't halfway take care of their plants ... I've rescued many abused plants from friends over the years.. actually kidnapped a few...

5 - gotta keep it clean ..

Lol, I haven't kidnapped any plants yet but I guess I could do it if I noticed a plant that looks unhappy:p
Call me crazy, but I talk to my miniature roses all the time, I compliment them every day:D

You're not alone, lots of people talk to their plants and it's said to be good for them. I've never been able to bring myself to talk to my plants. One reason is because they seem to do quite well without me saying a word to them, and another reason is that it would just feel a bit too weird. One thing I do though is that I do pet my plants, and stroke them from time to time, for some odd reason they seem to like it. I suppose it would be the equivalent of giving your family pet a belly-rub. You know once you start to rub a dog's belly he doesn't want you to stop, I get a vibe from my plants that they don't want me to stop admiring their beauty and stroking the very healthy leaves.

I joke with friends who ask me do I talk to my plants and tell them NO, but in about 20 years, if I've not re-married, and my kids are on their own, I might start talking to them then..

I'm always tempted to pet my roses too but I rarely touch them - I do this only when I'm washing their leaves. I'm too afraid that my fingers are too warm for them or something, I don't know, maybe I shouldn't worry about it. When I talk to them, I always make sure that no one is in the room:p . My family already think I'm crazy so I don't want to give them any more reasons to criticize me:p

A small boy is helping his grandfather dig up potatoes.
"What I want to know" he says, "is why you buried the damn things in the first place."

That's pretty funny. Best Dried Arrangement. You could have posted it with the flower humor. I put all kinds of gardening jokes in that thread, even vegetable humor.
