He has the knack, and now he's back

March 25, 2004

Hip hip hooray for Robert Smaus.

He is a legend in our house.

When he retired his weekly column

Our garden lives became quite solemn.

The Times informs us that he's back

To keep our garden chores on track.

A monthly tip sheet we will read

Just how and when to plant that seed.

Blessings on our garden guru;

He'll always be our earthly hero.
