Garden fairies note changes

Garden fairies here.

We are garden fairies and we have decided to post on this blog at this unusual time, in the middle of the day, because there are certain events, changes, and goings-on here that we believe readers will want to be apprised of.

First off, we are garden fairies so we would be remiss not to mention one of our very favorite beloved clematis is blooming. This one is called 'Pagoda'.  We know Carol also posted a picture of it but we are garden fairies and when we post, we do so without regard, respect, or reverence for anything Carol posts.

That's just the way it is.

And speaking of the way it is, it is not the way it is any longer here. There is a change here. A big change.

We garden fairies caught wind of this change awhile back and henceforth have had many discussions, dialogues, and discourses about it to determine how it will affect us because we are garden fairies.

We have determined, using all the information we could gather in a short amount of time, that this change should be for the better, or at least we've decided to keep an open mind and assume it will be for the better.

How could it not be better for the gardener to not have anything else to do but garden? And possibily write about it?

Yes, that is the big change in these gardens. Carol no longer leaves the garden every day to go do whatever it was she did during the day. Now she stays here. All the time.  Honestly, it is just starting but so far, we have no privacy anymore. No quiet. At any moment, she can fling open that back door and there she is in the garden.

We are going to have to keep a constant watch, a vigilance, one eye open especially when we are sleeping during the day to see what Carol is up to.

This is could be good, as we noted, or it could be bad.

We'll go with good for now, until we see evidence to the contrary, because we are garden fairies.

P.S. There are peas waiting to be picked. We assume she'll be out soon to pick them so we are going to hide amongst the weeds. At least there are many hiding places amongst the weeds right now, though we realize that could also change.


  1. You poor garden fairies. I know just how you feel. When my DB retired I too found that I didn't have any quiet time, no time for myself by myself. You soon get used to it. It will all work out.

  2. Carol, you will wonder how you got anything done before retirement. enjoy the time! I know you will love it!

  3. Ah, retirement. I sense those garden fairies are going to be sprinkling some special fairy dust on your lunch to make sure you take an afternoon nap and give them a break....

  4. I've been wondering how you fairies were doing now that Carol is retired. I suspected that she would be out in the garden all day every day. I hope you can find a quiet, secret place to rest during the day!

  5. This made me smile.
    You are lucky to have these unseen companions. Maybe you can train them to lighten your load :-) ?

    Happy retirement.
