Guest Post: Garden Fairies Discuss Time and Whodunit
We get an extra hour.
That's right, we are garden fairies, and we get an extra hour on Sunday because Carol is going to turn the clocks back one hour. Just for us garden fairies. We are garden fairies, we appreciate these kind gestures.
Wait, we are garden fairies. We do not use clocks or watches. We don't really care about time. For us it is either dusk, night, dawn, or day. That is it. Our days have those four parts. Well, we do sometimes divide the day into short shadow time and long shadow time, but that is about it. So this "falling back" one hour matters not to us.
What matters to us is that there was some kind of critter, most likely a chipmunk or maybe a squirrel, who dug in one of the containers Carol had on the front porch and they left a big ol' mess.
Oh sure, we do stuff in the garden just to make Carol wonder but we never just make a mess like this. This is amateurish. No, we do not do this type of stuff because -- say it with us -- we are garden fairies.
We plan to organize a meeting of all the critters here at May Dreams Gardens and see if we can find out who did this. Then we are garden fairies, we will make them clean it all up. Oh, yes. We will. Because that is how it is done.
Now, when we have meetings, we follow our own rules and protocol. We will explain those later.
In the meantime, we are garden fairies and we are done with this post.
