Shut Up and DigUncategorized Botanical Interest Soap–We Have a Winner By Garden Rant - June 2, 2010 4 Facebook Twitter Google+ Pinterest WhatsApp And it is the people's choice vote! Laura Bell, you win the Botanical Interest soap not only for your comment, but for the number of enthusiastic votes you got after it went live. Here's her winning comment: I was new, barely two. The day was wet, the earth was goo. Frilly-dressed, Curly-tressed, "keep clean !" Mama stressed. Shouldn't ought-er, but dirt & water called even then to this daughter. Sit in the puddle – in the muddle ! – happy toes in a muddy huddle. Cherub-chubby, head-to-toe grubby, "Come see our girl !" said Mama's hubby. Somewhere in my Mom's collection of mementos from my childhood is a frilly yellow dress, size 2T or so, with impossible to remove Alabama red-dirt stains all over it. She cried then, but now she laughs & says she should have known I'd be a gardener.
