IS) Boyle Hum-Dams Art Work of the Gardner Ry'Ilal Boyle. NEW YORK (AP)—The season of airy madness is upon us. II is the time to find • a home on the loam and begin a begonia. With bulb and seed the spring gardener : goeth forth to sow Ihe good earth in his backyard, and he cometh In at eventide, racked by his own growing pains and covered with top-soil. , . And to save my life this is one class of citizens I cannot understand. I have a dim appreciation of why', people become birdwatchers, and my soul knows a sense of syni- psthy for hgrseplayers, • butterfly collectors and that strange kind of fauna that gets up before dawn to prowl beaches in search of the better senshell. -i^ , Passion for Pursuits •picir passion'for these strange pursuits I don't share, but at least I can sense what makes them what they are. But the spring gardener —there's an odd one beyond my crass comprehension. What primordial urge each spring sends him out to duel the landscape, convinced that this year lie can conquer crabgrass, gladden the heart of a gladiolus and grow a five-pound strawberry Why does he want to anyway? All I can see he docs is annoy the balance of nature. There he stalks, this man without _, a .hce, givinj hormone shots to geraniums that don't want them, ambushing innocent potato bugs with'deadly spray guns and Interfering "with the home life of robins. '.Yes sir, from the minute 'the spring gardner sticks.his big green thumb into the backyard there s no rest for bird,'bug, tree or plant until snow flies. ;. By aii^umn he wrtj^ total,up his Jj^tpries and fmd t he* hns" raised ifllhit S25 worth of vegetables To do .this he will have spent about $500 in fancy tools—hS needs more equip- ment than a paratrcop battalion— $50 in doctor bills, sunburn lotions and liniment, and about sion in la- tor. This is figuring his time at a nickel an hour, which may be more than it is worth. - "Slay In Bick"' AH this wouldn't be so bad if these frustrated farmers would stay in their own back yards. But they bring their small triumphs and major disasters—a pea plant that podded,'a rcse that bllghtod—into" the office. All they'll talk about is whether they should have, banked the pzaleas with peat mos= and lime, or just good old-fashioned hyp«r humus, whatever that is. They prattle endlessly on the supposed merits of the outdoor life, the fine exercise' they get, and how much better they sleep at nights. I guess that's hyper humus, too. Anyway. I don't want any of it. All I .w?nt to do with the good earth in Ihc wonderful season of spring is to wander across it or lie upon it. and read a. poem or listen to the birds call. I don't hate the worm, and if a bug doesn't bite me I won't DDT him. Nor do I have any dcsjre to hurry the grass—or currj' it either. And I think It would be a fine thing if all spring gardeners at thi> magic time would either go climb a rhododendron! or quit bragums: and grow srmethine really Inipresive— say a redwood tree.
