See what I mean about an odd little dot in the sky pretending to be our SUN ?
Even more eerie when little flakes of snow are whirling around in front of it ..
Bare tree tops reaching towards it as if they might warm their bony finger tips to encourage buds possibly ?
Again with the quaint little scene ... wintery .. harmless ... wwaaahhhhh ! like it is the beginning of winter instead of near the end ?
Dave and the boys are deep in resignation .. just trying to get each white day behind them to work on the soon coming green days ? .. and I am not talking St. Paddy's day either .. I mean true GREEN anything days ?
So what is a gardening gal to do ? .. buy gardening magazines and DROOL big time all over them saying "I want THAT !" .. or " I am going to do that too !!" or "how did they know I needed THAT ??" ... then there was that impulse buy at Home Sense .. we are still waiting for the famous Lowes to be built here in Kingston .. I'm disappointed it wasn't built during the real winter months because it would have been so nice to see their garden center with plants and garden art .. I can NOT wait !!
So .. anyone knowing me and my thing for frogs won't be surprised I had to go the way of the FROG with this little accent piece .. are they too cute to believe or what ??
Sophie had to give everything a once over to make sure no cat treats had fallen on anything .. by mistake .. double checking is her middle name ?
She thought she might just be able to sit in the bowl of this little goodie .. just trying it out ..
Then .. by some amazing chance I saw Nan Ondra's name in one of the magazines I was reading and thought how nice is that ? I actually have had the pleasure of reading her blog and commenting .. so I know some one famous : ) I had to take the picture !
So .. this is what I got up to in the past few days .. still working on getting better and most certainly working on garden ideas and ... another contractor is going to set up a time for a consultation .. that has a HUGE smile plastered on my face and I am one happy gardening gal !
