Garden heaven on earth

Brenda and I visited the most beautiful garden in Oktibbeha County today.  Of course, it was Shirley Dawkins’. She’s like a fairy godmother to us.  Everything she plants works.

The best thing about Shirley is that she shares.  If you admire something, she bends over and pulls up a start for you to plant.  She really wants to make this planet more beautiful.  She shamed me when she found I wasn’t re-cycling.

  1. So glad to see Shirley’s garden featured here. And she claims that she has cut back. I, too, have many plants from her garden.

  2. Shirley honored me with a tour of her garden many years ago. One of my fond memories of Shirley and Starkville. I have to give my sister, Esther Goodman, credit for arranging it with her friend, Shirley.
