Speaking of the "Twilight Zone" ......


The "Body Snatcher" pods are almost ready ..." doo doo dooo do" ... can you hear the music playing eerily in the background ??

A frog with plants growing out of his back while pretending to be an garden ornament .. come on ! that is Twilight Zone material people !!
I know a few of us have gargoyles in our gardens .. but are they whispering all the time while munching on leaves from your plants .. and ... giggling ?




Sure ... I believe they are seed pods from clematis .. but if you are quick and quiet at night .. you can see them waving their tiny arms about with some kind of code going on to the other plants !
They mean to take over the world people !!! .. starting with us gardeners because we know what they are up to !!!!

It seems like a lot of us are finding spooky things lurking about the house and garden. Tis the season, I guess. Or is it the sauce? ;>}

W.G.'s in a great mood, what exactly has he been chewing on ? LOL
Seems like his green pals are loving the weather big time.

And one more thing, I'll never look at Clematis seed pods with the same boldness. Creepy!

Brenda .. I checked in on your blog .. you look like you are still ok down there .. but wow ! all of these hurricanes .. one right after the other .. a bit much to handle. I'm trying to think of how the tune sounds like to Spooky .. all I can think of is "The Monster Mash" ! LOL

The pod pick looks just like me and my sister when we were young.

I'm afraid the frog is not Twilight Zone material. I can't get the image of Shirley Temple out of my head after seeing your photo. OH WAIT! That is Twilight Zone material :)

I like how you use Creeping Jenny to decorate the frog ornament.

Louise .. Hi ! .. It is actually gold creeping jenny, even though it looks quite green right now. It has a very shallowe root system so it is great to pop in lots of different containers .. thanks for stopping by !

Dear Mr. WiseA** .. I just knew I had a family picture of you some where !! LOL ............ now you have Shirley Temple playing in my mind too ... thanks a BUNCH ! haha
