Cucumber Folklore

Hi everyone I have some fun folklore for all of you. According to folklore you need to have a naked man plant your cucumber seeds on May 1st. I think a couple days is plenty of time to find a fellow to help you out! Happy May Day!

Toadshade or Trillium Sessile is a magical springtime flower. Also known as a wake-robin is a native perennial. They will slowly multiple over the years and are worth the wait. They are one of the first wildflowers to bloom and their mottled leaves are amazing toad like. Every Haunted Garden needs some.
