To start the New Year, here are some funny garden sayings that I've found online:

"Annual" really means disappointment once a year.

The lawn is always slightly bigger than your actual desire to mow it.

Whatever garden tool you want always seems to be at the back of the shed.

The only way to ensure rain is to give the garden a good soaking.

Weeds grow at precisely the rate you pull them out.

Nothing ever looks like it does on the seed packet.

Autumn follows Summer, Winter follows Autumn, drought follows planting.

The only way to guarantee color year round is to buy a garden gnome.

However bare the lawn, grass will always appear in the gaps between the paving stones.

"Evergreen" is a misnomer, they almost always turn a shade of brown in the Winter.
