National Gardening Exercise Day, June Anniversaries

 June is here-- the month of June brides. My parents 77th anniversary is today. I hope they're celebrating in Heaven.

Our daughter Sara and her hubby celebrate their anniversary on  June 10.

Our anniversary is June 14. Thank goodness it's Flag Day too. So when Gardener Ted sees the flags flying on Main Street, he knows it's anniversary time!

Gardener Ted and JQ

Hello and Welcome to the J.Q. Rose Blog

Not only is June the month of brides, it's also a month for gardens.
In fact, today, June 6 is National Gardening Exercise Day. Whether you love gardening to grow 

vegetables and/or flowers. You'll get plenty of exercise.

According to the holiday insights website, "It's good for the mind, body, and soul. Gardening Exercise Day gives us an opportunity to go out and burn off calories and have fun doing it. National Gardening Exercise Day is intended to recognize the important physical health benefits of gardening."

My friend and cozy mystery author, Susan Bernhardt, captured what gardening means to her in her blog post this week. Take a peek at it here.

  1. J.Q. I had no idea that today was National Gardening Exercise Day. I'll mention that on FB and will post a link to your page.

    You and Gardener Ted are amazing. I love seeing photos of your gardens.

    Happy National Gardening Day! :)

  2. Looking at the gardening pictures made me want a salad, lol. I enjoyed all the pictures.

  3. Thanks, Susan. So glad it worked out that YOU had that amazing article on your blog for me to share too.

  4. Oh Juneta, if you only knew how much lettuce we have this week! It seemed we waited so long, and now it's all ready at once. And yes, the fresh lettuce makes a terrific salad. Come on over. We'll share. !!!

  5. Happy Anniversary, everyone. Looks like June is the time of new beginnings. ;-)
