As I was taking my daily walk around the neighborhood, I couldn’t help but notice the abundance of garden banners adorning front yards. It seems like every other house has a colorful banner proudly declaring their love for all things green and leafy.
Now, don’t get me wrong, I love a good garden as much as the next person. But some of these banners were just too funny not to share.
First up, there was the classic “Welcome to my garden” banner, complete with a cartoon image of a smiling sunflower. Nothing too outrageous there, but it’s always nice to feel welcome.
Then there was the “I’d rather be gardening” banner. Well, wouldn’t we all? But maybe it’s best not to broadcast that fact to the world, lest our bosses get any ideas.
Next, I saw a banner that simply read “Gardening is cheaper than therapy.” I can’t argue with that logic, but it does make me wonder what kind of therapy this person was getting before they discovered gardening.
One banner that really made me do a double-take read “Gardening is my cardio.” Now, I’m all for getting exercise wherever you can, but I’m not sure tending to your tomato plants quite qualifies as a heart-pumping workout.
Another banner that caught my eye simply said “Plant lady is the new cat lady.” I have to admit, I chuckled at this one. It’s good to know that the stereotype of the lonely old cat lady has been replaced by the hip and trendy plant lady.
And finally, my personal favorite banner of the day read “I’m outdoorsy – I drink wine on my patio.” Now that’s my kind of gardening!
All in all, it was a fun and lighthearted stroll through the neighborhood. Who knew that garden banners could be such a source of amusement? Maybe I should get one for my own front yard – “Caution: Plants ahead. Proceed with care (and maybe a margarita).”
