Stuipid Gardening

You gotta love an 8-year-old who reads history.

You gotta love an 8-year-old who brings history to his backyard.

In the words of his dad, Lloyd Rang:

Cameron read that the ancient Romans would insult basil to make it grow better. So, out of love and concern, he put up this (somewhat ironic) sign:

Now excuse me, I’m off to swear at my #$%&ing peonies.

Cameron’s writing has appeared here twice before. I can’t help but adore this kid even though I’ve never met him. Please check out a touching post, How Our Kids Re-Write Us, and a hilarious one, When Kids Try Hot Sauce.
