Garden fairies here!
Woo hoo! Carol has gone outside to chop more ice off the driveway and she left the laptop on. Our turn! We can hardly wait to tell you about our newest endeavor -- Garden Fairies On Ice.
"Endeavor" might not be the right word for what we are doing because that sounds like we are putting a lot of effort into it and we are garden fairies, we do not put much effort into anything except maybe making sure there is enough "fairy water", as in alcoholic beverages, to get us through the winter, and the spring, summer, and fall, but that's another story.
Anyway with all the garden fairy children being out of school so many days because of the ice, we've been doing our best to come up with ways to entertain them and keep them physically active. After all, they are much too young... wait. That's not quite true, garden fairies don't go to school. (Makes you wonder how we have the where with all to post on this here blog, doesn't it? Well, we are garden fairies, we have our ways.)
Anyway, regarding Garden Fairies on Ice, we garden fairies are having the best time with all of this ice around here. Carol's back yard doesn't have any hills or even big slopes to speak of, but with this ice, who needs a hill? We garden fairies just grab a leaf to sit on and then with one big push we can go ice sailing across the lawn in the back yard. Oh, gosh that is a fun rush of adrenalin!
The real daredevils amongst us garden fairies have been thinking about going around to the front yard where there is a slope but we are afraid we would go down the slope, across the street, up into the neighbor's yard and run smack dab into their house. Ouch! Not only that, but they have two big dogs over there. You know we garden fairies don't like dogs and puppies much because they will eat just about anything -- including garden fairies! Oh my!
Anyway, shudder, and put that right out of your minds! We garden fairies didn't grab control of this computer to tell you about dogs and puppies. It's all Garden Fairies on Ice over here. We are slipping and sliding, skating and dancing on the ice, admiring the beautify of this most unusual winter landscape. Why, yesterday the sun came out and the world was just one giant sparkle! We garden fairies live for pretty days like that and might have enjoyed it more had most of us not been sleeping off a night of Garden Fairies on Ice.
But most of us roused ourselves enough to enjoy it. After all, they'll be time for sleeping later on after the ice melts and before the spring flowers start peaking up through the mulch.
In the meantime -- Garden Fairies on Ice -- the greatest winter spectacle you'll ever seen in a garden.
