Happy Plants and Garden Creatures

I am not a serious gardener.  I do not test my soil; have a shed full of fertilizers or a myriad of gardening tools.  And, I cannot wax philosophically about the pros and cons of plant characteristics. I buy plants that speak to me (metaphorically, I am not that crazy – yet) and plant them where they are pleasing to the eye. If they are happy — great!  If not, I move them.  If they survive –good!  If not, I buy a different plant.  If they are a vegetable and I’m able to harvest some food – better still!


I enjoy being outside digging in the soil or relaxing while communing with my garden friends (again, metaphorically… I’m not really having a conversation with the garter snake –yet).



5:30 am

Sipping coffee minding my own business when

“…Soon again I heard a tapping somewhat louder than before.
`Surely,’ said I, `surely that is something at my window lattice;
Let me see then, what thereat is, and this mystery explore –
Let my heart be still a moment and this mystery explore; –
‘Tis the wind and nothing more!”      – Edgar Allen Poe


Or a big fat frog.
