Hi there International Bellaonline!

C'mon, speaking of sayings for wood or stones and so on - how many ways can we say WELCOME TO MY GARDEN?

*** Afrikaans - Welkom na my tuin!

*** Zulu - coming soon!

How about YOUR translation please - German, Dutch, Italian, Spanish, Greek, French, Hungarian, Scots (how would Robbie Burns have written it?) Hindi? Yiddish? More and more and more ... and of course for Russian and Hebrew and Chinese (Mandarin etc.) and many African languages we would have to go phonetic English.

OMG there are so many ways.

And what about some whimsy? Chaucer? Shakespeare? Martian?

Join in, let's have some fun! And then later on we can think of ways to use these too. Ta

Es ist nett, da� Sie zu meinem Garten kamen. (It is nice that you came to my garden.)

I had to look this up to be sure of my spelling.

Bienvenido a mi jardin

Just wrote an article about Spanish-English cognates and "jardin" is one of over 4000 "true" cognates that those languages share. Francine's German one is almost all cognates.

Hey there Everyone and thanks mucho for the response - more more more please.

Welsh Mona - can you and all write a 'phonetic' style pronunciation style guides for us English only speakers?

Ah this is going to be great and while we are gathering them we must think of ways to use them ... written on paving stones, signs of course and more ways for sure.

How else can we incorporate them into or onto things?

We could also do similar things and use short sentences which say the same thing (in case the language next up says it differently) - like 'You're WELCOME here!' or 'Peace rules in my garden!' Or, anything you consider worthy of a sign in your personal space...

Cheers now

Hi Mona,

This is great, thankyou!

Now I just have to show off!

Indulge me please.

A leading property and realty company Pam Golding Properties here in South Africa (and internationally though am not sure about USA) recently ran a 'The best verge competition' in a bid to get the suburbs of Johannesburg looking good and weedless and all and all.

WELL, Lestie (that's me) and her team of two (Sphiwe and Jacob), both my hands and enthusiastic Building Assistants and Gardeners WON THE COMPETITION and won a prize of R20 000 for us and our building AND could nominate a charity for a further R5000 00, given that that charity was one that was growing a vegetable patch of sorts.

A hole in one I tell you - we are thrilled and are waiting for our prize to go and do some serious shopping to fill in the blanks we have in our gardening tools and plants and all and all.

BUT - I will now be able to say to people IN WELSH - Welcome to my garden!

Oh I am grinning! We are grinning! They are grinning! Sounds like a Latin lesson hey?

Cheers now

Llongyfarchion i Lestie a'i th�m!
Congratulations to Lestie and her team!


This is the walled garden of Llanerchaeron in mid-Wales, an 18th century gentry estate, comprising house and home farm as well as the walled garden. The garden is being restored, using documentary evidence and archaeological techniques, to determine what plants were grown there. But we know - surprisingly - that one unusual plant they grew was saffron.






Croeso
