Re: was Cyclamen / now Master Gardeners


Daryl,
Sounds like you've had a tough time of it.  I remember when I had a car
accident and damaged my shins - couldn't kneel or squat for a couple of
years.  But at least my situation was temporary; yours is not.  I think the
people we are scoffing at are not people with any disability or even
discomfort.  The "gardeners" we don't understand are the ones that won't
(not can't) dig because it might ruin their manicure.

Kitty
