The Professor & Her Garden

Good soil. Good students. And maybe some decent English peas.

Blogging 101 Assignment of the Day: Mess Up a Good Thing (aka “try a new post format”)

1 Comment

So today our ever-present and gifted Blogging 101 Grand Poobah Michelle wants us to try something different with our posts.  The directions of “post format” seem easy enough.  (Famous last words!)

Okay, for “different” today, I decided to pick some random quotes about gardening.  And because my blog is The Professor & Her Garden, I decided I needed to find quotes that used gardening to speak to learning or were written by smart people I admire.  So, without further adieu, here are my gardening quotes as part of my Blogging 101 Assignment:

“If you have a garden and a library, you have everything you need.”  –Cicero

“Weeds are flowers too, once you get to know them.”  –A. A. Milne

 “A garden is a grand teacher.  It teaches patience and careful watchfulness, it teaches industry and thrift; above all it teaches entire trust.”  –Gertrude Jekyll
“No occupation is so delightful to me as the culture of the earth, and no culture comparable to that of the garden.” — Thomas Jefferson
“Gardening is learning, learning, learning.  That’s the fun of them.  You’re always learning.”  –Helen Mirren
And this is why I’m a professor.  And why I’m trying gardening during my sabbatical.

I'm a professor of Journalism and Mass Communications at the University of South Carolina. I am passionate about rowing, I'm mostly scared about sailing (but I'm competent), I love to cook when I don't have to, and I have some fairly strong opinions about journalism education.
