A Moon A Frog and .. another MOON !

Well .. this was not a trick question or scenario ? .. I'm still trying to keep up with Cindee and other fellow bloggers that collect moon/sun faces .. I threw in the diving or piroetting ? frog for good measure.
Almost any gardener who can't help themselves but collect garden art .. collects it before such things can actually be put in the garden .. you see something and you just can't help yourself .. you just know it will look wonderful as a little touch among the plants .. right ?
Then there was this morning's moon still hanging around even though I slept in till 7:30 !!
How could I not try to catch it in a good mood ?

I'm a little disappointed today since the "shed-men" did not show up to take down the old shed .. I know it was cold .. but the sun was shining .. and it wasn't too windy .. and boy, do I want things to stay on schedule or what ??? BIG sigh !

Sorry the shed guys flaked out today. I know how you want it to get done asap. Hopefully Monday they will be ther bright and early!

Have you seen Cindee's latest sun? This is going to be a fun spring with you guys out mooning and sunning one another;-)


Sunita said...

I like your sun, moon and stars, Joy. And the frog makes me laugh. Are they plant pokes?
Hope you have better luck with the shed guys tomorrow. I think I should be too used to these unexpected delays happening all the time to let it throw me , but it still does. So I know exactly what you're talking about ;)

I think you like moons just as much as I like sunsets!

Hi Cindee (I forgot to highlight your name when I posted this time .. duh ? ) .. I have some frogs in the garden already but love having more .. I miss having REAL frogs .. they are disappearing from our area altogether. I'll have to check on your frogs !!!

Gail .. that was pretty funny girl ! it is going to be a wacky season this year I think ? LOL

Hi Sunita .. yes they are garden spikes .. to almost hide among the plants but get a glimpse of them for a surprise : )
I doubt the shed-guys will be here today .. it is Sunday .. everyone has to take a day off right ? .. but yes .. I'm too anal about schedules !

Robin .. I think that may be very true girl ! I wonder what that says about us ? some hidden meaning in our character or something ? LOL

Debbie girl .. you need to post that cobalt sun face so I can see it !! .. I love that shade of blue : )

Thanks Linda .. no news yet on "our" camera ??? LOL

I have to fight temptation to buy more and more garden art! Love your celestial choices! I must admit to having a few (art) frogs inside the house, too.


our friend Ben said...

Love those morning moon shots, Joy! They're so refreshing! I have a beautiful copper moon and stars windchime that hangs in my redbud tree outside the kitchen and cheers me up, and a "green man" on the kitchen wall to remind me to get out there and garden! I, too, hope your shed men show up so you can see some progress. Fingers crossed!

Hi Cameron .. the temptation is at its worst before I can really get in the garden and WORK .. I miss frogs .. no singing or peepers around here at all, so I have to have some in the garden ! : )

Hello there "ben" .. I have a plaster copy of a greenman from Roslyn Chapel, in Scotland .. some friends had done a tour there and knew I would love it .. along with a moss rock from outside the chapel (I know .. naughty eh ? LOL)
I can't imagine a garden without some "art" in it : )

Great moon shots, Joy. I love the garden art. I must be an black sheep when it comes to garden art, but until recently I could never really nail down something that I truly like or even love- well maybe watering cans. Then suddenly last year I found I liked turtles! And do you think I could find any...very few, of course! Happy spring to you :)

GardenJoy4Me said...

Tessa .. Happy Spring girl ! Isn't that the way ? .. you finally nail done your turtles theme and none to be found ! .. keep looking, they have to come out of hiding some time !! LOL
