Colors of equality

Those lanterns weren’t nearly gay enough. In celebration of Friday’s SCOTUS marriage equality decision, and in solidarity with all of my friends and colleagues who have already availed themselves of this freedom or who are now able to, here is some rainbow/garden imagery I found on Shutterstock.

Like Susan, I am not at all sure what a “relentlessly gay” yard is supposed to look like; like our commenters, I think that the “hate note” may have been a hoax; and, finally, like many straight gardeners everywhere, I find myself in awe of the garden magic many of my LGBT friends are able to create.

In any case, it’s great to be able to have a nationwide celebration of love, for a change.

    Gardening IS a “social” issue.

    So one can no longer just plant a garden without some PC symbolism attached to it. Seriously?

    Also, you bill yourself as a politically conservative gardener; your objection here doesn’t make any sense.

    YES I AM A POLITICALLY CONSERVATIVE GARDENER who gardens organically composts like crazy……

  • Saurs 24 / 10 / 2016

    No one’s pissed but you, sweetheart.

  • Jan Clark 26 / 10 / 2016

    LOL I love the oh-so-sarcastic tone of the pictures. But the occasion is worth it nonetheless. (worth the celebration)
