Oprah does gardening
So I'm home on my lunch hour and flipping channels while I'm eating and stumble across Oprah. I rarely watch her show but she caught my attention with this hunky gardener who had apparently made over her neighbor's balconies. I had never heard of him although her website claims that he is a big star in Australia. Anyway he's welcome to come weed in my garden any time. :) It was obvious though that Oprah knows nothing about gardening. She had never heard of a mother-in-laws tongue, for heaven's sake! I will give her two thumbs up though for her show today. Everything she touches turns to gold so maybe she'll inspire more people to start gardening. Her show gave a huge plug to Lowe's - the store's name was mentioned in every other sentence. And, at the end of the show, she gives all the audience members gift boxes (supplied by Lowe's of course!) to start their own window boxes and they scream and yell and act like they just won a million dollars.
