  • Wait until she shows up on one of the PBS organic gardening programs. Her family certainly has the uncomposted manure.

    Yes, the Elephant-in-chief's could fertilize many a garden, indeed.

  • I don't suppose anyone in the family would know its origins (as previous residents of their house did), but gardens always make me think of "We have much to hope from the flowers."
