Who opens all those flowers?

Mayapple bud
Garden fairies here!

We are garden fairies and we know the answer to the question "who opens all those flowers?"

We do. Yes we garden fairies are responsible for opening every single flower in the garden.

And we are near exhaustion at this point because this is spring, our busy season.

And it seems we are busier every year as someone keeps planting new flowers.  We barely get one flower open before it is time for the next flower to open.

Sometimes, we just want to relax, for just a minute, and admire the flowers as we open them.

Some kind of trillium
But there is no time for rest. It's spring. The busy season.

Did you read that?

The busy season.
Phlox subulata
It's a wonder we garden fairies have any time and energy for writing on this blog.

But we wanted everyone to know we are still here, we are just busy with the spring season.

Now, if you'll excuse us, we need to open that mayapple bud in the first picture,  stop the viola painting fairies from making good on their threat to paint the trilliums and then admire the phlox.

Because if we don't admire the nice striping on that phlox, some garden fairy is likely to get all huffy.

No one wants that.

We are garden fairies.

  1. Dear Fairies, you are doing a good job with flower opening in Carols garden andn also in my garden. Thank you very much.

  2. Love following this blog. Always a moment of good humor, and truth be told.

  3. The fairies have been busy...here too and the blog will have to wait. Here in Houston a long hot (unbearable)summer await so there is plenty of time to reflect then. Happy spring!

  4. What a wonderful job you are doing! I couldn't have asked for a more glorious spring--thank you!

Comments are to a blog what flowers are to a garden. Sow your thoughts here and may all your comments multiply as blooms in your garden.

Though there is never enough time to respond to each comment individually these days, please know that I do read and love each one and will try to reciprocate on your blog.

By the way, if you are leaving a comment just so you can include a link to your business site, the garden fairies will find it and compost it!
