Perennials or Bust

This is about as far as I’ve felt good enough to get with my garden so far this year. Obviously the only logical step to take was to let a seven year old go ahead and decorate it for me. Since the weather here doesn’t know what the hell it’s doing, my silver mounds are not yet properly ‘mounding’ and we’ve been watching for her balloon flowers which are nowhere in sight. So until it’s time, these little guys will light the way for the new growth and I will continue to fight back the urge to bring home that gigantic tortoise lawn statue from Menards!

Be well, Friends

    1. I called them the Little Rummies πŸ˜‚ The tortoise is amazing, it was big enough that my kid could lay on it like a starfish. We bypassed it originally because it was hollow and one good branch falling on it would crack it. But if it was solid it would have weighed 700 pounds!

    1. They were all so cute, it was hard for her to choose. The current fox obsession made some of her decision easier πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—


  6. Sam, you have a faerie garden πŸ’•πŸ˜‚ so good. Did you know Devic folk also like to have a ‘wild corner’. You know, a place where gnomes and goblins can sit and gossip while they watch the babies grow up. If you go out quietly at the full of the moon, just as the day is dusking, you may even catch a glimpse.

    1. I had to look all this up! Now I’m thinking we should expand our fairy’s living space πŸ™ŒπŸ™ŒπŸ™Œ She’s been asking to make one and we finally found a place that sells all sorts of miniatures for it!


      1. YAY!! Go Sam! Your faeries will love you. While you are at it, plant some faerie rings – flowers planted in a circle. Johnny Jump Ups aka mini violas look awesome. They sing and dance in and around them.

        1. I’m still in the process of trying to lure some company to mow my lawn πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Then we can get our fairies and plant some new things! Usually the season is May but its been so cold until now and we’ve had frost warnings so I’m actually right on schedule πŸ€—

          1. I was just thinking about you and the faerie garden you’re planning. It will be so much fun! One year I had my front lawn full of faerie rings. And a reliable source told me that the wild corner in my backyard housed an elf nursery. This inspired me to write about a little elf and his Very Important Mission.
            Your daughter might enjoy reading it – this is the link to a 10 series story about Buttons, the Woodland Elf.
            In the intro there are links also to stories about his friend, Salma Butterfly.
