|This isn't really Carol! (Library of Congress photo)|
We are garden fairies and we are taking over this blog once again while Carol sits and ruminates by the fire.
We do not profess to know of what she ruminates, and we are pretty sure this isn't even a picture of her, but it will have to do.
The winds were sure blowing yesterday. Once again, the theme is where was Carol? We are not sure where she was, but we were too busy to look for her.
When winds blow like that it is all we can do to keep all the flowers on their stems.
We did all right yesterday, though between the wind and the cold, the Star Magnolia blooms are done for the season. But we did keep the blooms on these tulips.

Anyway, we are garden fairies and we sure felt the wind yesterday. It's a sign you know. When the wind blows, it brings changes. And it gets rid of stuff, too, like electricity.
The way the wind was blowing yesterday, we garden fairies think there are some big changes blowing in. We aren't sure what changes, but we will be on high alert until we figure it out. There are signs. See above about Carol ruminating.
In the meantime, Dandy Lionflower wanted us to post about how he has been keeping the dandelion flower stems short so when Carol mows, she doesn't mow off the flowers.
At this time, we do want to apologize on behalf of Dandy and others for sowing seeds of dandelions in the flower beds and along the paths in the garden. We know the dandelions belong in the lawn. We will henceforth be more careful. Possibly.
Oh, who are we kidding. We are garden fairies and we make no apologies and we sow where we want to sow.
