A Guest Post from the Garden Fairies
Where’s Carol? It’s been weeks, it seems, since she’s spent any real time out here in the garden.
I know! I hear she came out a few days ago, gave the compost tumbler a couple of turns and then picked a tomato and ate it.
I saw her with that lawn mower a couple of times, but that doesn’t count, that’s not gardening.
I wonder if she has another garden? Surely she must because how can she go so long without gardening?
I don’t know, but this place is really looking sad. I know she wants it to rain, but I don’t know if it is goin’ rain anytime soon. She’d better start watering!
Yeah, some of these plants look really sad and droopy right now.
Oh, and did you see who moved into that perennial border over there? That’s right, the thistles!
You’re kidding, thistles?! Once those thistles move it, it’s darn hard to get rid of them. Surely she’s not going to let them stay through the winter? It will ruin this place for us garden fairies.
Yeah! And she needs to get that truck over to the mulch store and get a few loads of mulch before the snow flies.
Hey, this is a guest post. Did you take some pictures? A good gardening blog post has to have a few pictures.
Yes, I managed a few pictures, but I hope folks realize we’re garden fairies, so the perspective is a bit different.
Here's some asters in full bloom.
She got these from her aunt, I think.
Oh, I remember, that's when some of those new garden fairies that live up there under the locust tree showed up. I bet they were stow-aways.
Here's the last of the corn.Really, this corn is so far gone, it wouldn't even make a good fall decoration at this point.
Oh, yeah, remember when those raccoons showed up and tore through that corn? We were sure hiding that night and wasn't Carol mad the next day when she saw what they had done?
Here's a nice pepper ready to be picked.
Run! I hear her coming this way. I think she sees that pepper and is finally going to pick it! Oh, and she's carrying a hoe. Maybe it's finally the end for some of these weeds!
