A slave to the Goddess Flora shares his garden adventures.
Hilarious! What a great way to handle the awards "chain letter" thing. I just might put a list on my profile page for reference.
I know they're kind of silly but I love them and think that everyone who wants them should just drag them onto their blog!Bless Sally Field's heart, she's given us years of laughter with her "you like me" acceptance speech!
Found you by way of Obsessive Neurotic Gardener. Love your site. =0) The Kale post is beautiful!!!!! And the leaf one- spectacular! I always admire shots of fall- here in Austin we don't have a whole lot that changes color. I will add you to my list so I can start following you. Cute post today.
Glad you found me! It's nice of John to have added my blog to his blogroll. I checked out your blog and it looks fabulous! Do you love running a nursery? I'd imagine that, like everything else, even though you love it, some days it's just a job. Austin seems like a great place to garden!
I do - it is different every day. Yes, some days more fun than others... but all in all I love it. Austin is a great place just in general- the lake, hill country so close at hand, beach not that far of a drive, Austin is city without being to big of a city if that makes sense.
"I like you" too! so you have 4 dogs in your house, too many. Congratulations!
Thank you! Four dogs is a lot but they're fairly small so they only take up about as much space as one big dog.
Congratulations on your award, gotta love an Outlaw Gardener! May you continue to sing forever :)
Thanks Rosemary! Hope you are keeping warm up there!
Yea!!!! good for you
Thanks Deanne! Happy Wednesday!
Only 4 Poms? If you count by the pound, that's not even one Sammy! We do really like you!
I know right? I think we could have more but the DH disagrees.Aw gosh, you're so sweet. I thought of you and your koi this morning when I looked out my kitchen window at my pond. A few days ago, I unplugged the electric fence to wade in and do a little tidying up. I forgot to plug it back in and this morning there were two racoons frolicking around (hunting for breakfast) and the water level had gone down by a couple of feet. Yikes! I'm thinking that the water level might be the result of goofy racoons playing around the little waterfall area and causing the water to divert out somehow. It's hard to tell because everything is so soggy outside this time of year. Anyway, I should have grabbed the camera as it would have made a fun blog post but I went tearing out of the house yelling at the little buggers. The pond is now refilled and I still see some of the fish but think that others are still in hiding. Once the water clears, I'll be able to see if anyone got eaten.
Here's hoping the wet-pets are okay.
Congrats Peter, 4 dogs, no I'll just stick to my one. Have a nice day, Best Wishes Karen.
Thanks Karen! Don't you think that Sir Benjamin would be happy with a little friend with whom to romp through your flower beds?
Congrats, Peter. And don't worry, Sally Field is in the public domain.
Thanks Jason. And thanks for the fun idea!
Congrats...and I'm with you on flying...ugh!
Thanks Scott! My new friend is Xanax (Alprazolam.) I'm able to sleep through the flight which is a nice change from the whole white-knuckle experience that I have without the drug. It might be helpful for you too.
Ha! Thanks for the giggles. And I like you even more now that I know that you live with a pack of Pomeranians. As a fellow dog-loving gardener I'd love to hear what you do with all the doo. Hmm...maybe a blog post on the subject is in order?
You do that doo doo that you do so well? We tend to pick it up, put it in lovely plastic bags and throw it away. Lots of it just vanishes into the lawn & I used to throw it into flower beds until I heard that that it can contain bacteria which is unhealthy to humans. Don't know if I believe that or not.
Thanks so much for taking the time to comment! I love to hear your thoughts.
