Hoe, Hoe, Hoe

I took this picture last year, thinking it might make for a unique Christmas card. There were people at work who were egging me on. (They know about my hoes.) I didn't make a Christmas card with it, so decided that this will be my electronic Christmas card on my blog, at least for a few days. What do you think? How about that snowman garden statue? (Target!)

It really is starting to feel like Christmas. I'm finished with work for the year, unless they call me with some kind of emergency. I'm nearly finished with Christmas shopping. Now I enter into what I call the "free wheeling" shopping days, when I just browse around and if I see something someone might like, I get it. Now all my family and friends who read this are thinking, me, me, me! Please see something for me!

I've not commented on the weather in Indianapolis recently. It is unseasonably warm, like many other places. I did not have a chance to take advantage of the warm weather to do anything out in the garden, too much of my day job and everything else going on. Plus it rained. I'm still hoping some elves will do a few things for me. Today, I am going to go outside and see if I, too, have anything sprouting pre-maturely, like others I've read about.

Oh, I almost forgot, the inside of my Christmas card...

Hoe, hoe, hoe. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.


  1. Merry Christmas to you, too, Carol. And if you happen to see anything for me during your freewheeling shopping, I'll be glad to give you my snailmail address. Does this mean some lucky relatives get two gifts?

  2. I love your Hoe, Hoe, Hoe photo ... I just might have to borrow that idea for next year.

  3. Most people are frantically running around trying to get things done, and here you are, browsing., I still say you have too much time on your hands

  4. Please let it be me.....Please let it be me......Please let it be me!!! LOL!

  5. Hi Carol Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your family

  6. Oh good for you, Carol, some freewheeling shopping! I love to do that too but unfortunately the blizzard shut everything down here midweek and now I'll be scrambling tomorrow to just finish up!

    I love your Hoe, hoe, hoe, ... very clever! Glad you used it on us. Merry Christmas to you too!

  7. Hoe hoe hoe... Merry Christmas to you, too.

    Very sweet.

  8. Santa didn't give you a hoe this year did he? You will have to write Santa about this mix-up next year

  9. I just love the hoes...You need your very own hoe museum, you could charge a nominal admission fee, to support your hoe habit. It would be hoelarius (very, very bad joke!).

    I hope you are having a wonderful holiday. I'm off to my garden for a bit.

  10. I have gotten more kicks out of you and your "hoes" particularly the recent You Tube entry. This is a perfect card for those of us who follow your blog ... thanks.
