1700TH Post and the "Boys"

Well .. this is my 1700Th post so I thought it would be fitting to have the "boys" as it's subject even though I am in mid cabin fever and NEED to garden but the snow has me at bay!!
The boys have always been my constant coaches ? They cheer ? aka egg? , me on no matter how gloomy the situation as in a favorite plant up and died on me or what not .. so to show my appreciation of their constant effort to keep me going ..
Here is to you "Boys in the 'Hood" ... now be good this year !!

My wife has a collection of garden gnomes that appear to sit still. While we are looking that is! Their personalities range from impish to sillier. The eyes are affixed and they either look at or away from everyone!

Hello Ralph : )
These "guys" have a life totally on the other side of the mountain? LOL .. that is why they are perfect for the job I gave them here LOL

Hello Meems and thank you !
My guys love being in the limelight so they are perfect subjects to celebrate this post : )

Joe I only 'say" I am sane ... some how the "guys" know differently and tweek my nose a LOT about it ? ;-)

Thanks EG : ) loved those doorway accents you shot !

Pat said...

Have no clue what my first pic is.
Thank goodness the boys are back.
With you changing your blog so often ...seeing these guys tells me IT'S JOY. so cute but has no first name or does he?
Always liked Dave but that's just Dave.

Christine said...

1700 posts is a LOT of posts, Joy. I am in awe of your staying power. Here's to (at least) 1700 more. And here's to spring!!! And NO SNOW!!!

Northern Beauty Seeker said...

I think TG is dreaming of spring - he has that Mona Lisa smile on his face lol!

Hey Harriet said...

Haha! You're so funny! I like your little gang of gargoyles! And a great big congrats on 1700 posts! Wow! Here's to another 1700! :)

Unknown said...

Congrats on 1700 posts, Joy! I can't begin to imagine all the work that has taken. Now, do your garden gnomes hire themselves out? Because I'm thinking it's gonna take gnomes, fairies and assorted other helpers to tame my garden this spring! (PS it's melting here and I have snowdrops and witch hazel and heath blooming...we're going to pull through...)

Linda aka Crafty Gardener said...

The boys are back in town!! Woohoo, it's great to see them all together, perhaps they are discussing the updoming season and ways to "egg" you on some more. Have a great weekend.

Hootin' Anni said...

I love gnomes in my garden, and my dear man really likes this is a perfect photo share for me. LOL

Those guys definitely have character!

I was proud that my next post will be my 100th. Obviously, I need to start posting at a much higher rate!

CanadianGardenJoy said...

Patsi girl you just inspired me (kicked my butt) to spotlight the boys for this post!
WG was my first actual gargoyle . I only have one gnome ..
Dave is a bit too competitive so I worried about gnome wars .. but maybe I can sneak one more in when he isn't looking ... as for first names for WG and TG ..they are very secretive about that .. must be because the names are too funny ? wink wink
Can't wait for Nurse Jackie to start again!!

OH Christine girl ;-) I so wish Spring would smile here .. I got up to seeing it snowing this morning .. I am getting DISCOURAGED .. I may have to buy more plants ?? LOL
Thanks girl : ) it has become second nature to keep this blog rolling on ? wink wink

Ms S : ) I think yo are absolutely right about TG's smile it is very much a subtle and mysterious one? Being of the concrete nature he is a "heavy" thinker ?? LOL

Tracy girl thank you very much .. it is hard to believe I have done that many too .. time flies by in the garden season but winter drags every toenail like nails on chalkboard ??? LOL

Thank you Jodi girl (it really doesn't feel like work .. it is fun .. most of the time ? hehe ) My guys .. well, they have to fly first class so that is what turns off most potential customers .. plus Dave has a slight drinking problem that turns up with mowing down flowers instead of grass and a few other unmentionable events like peeing in peoples fountains and ponds .. oops .. I guess I mentioned that ? I am totally jealous you are in bloom with some wonderful plants there ! We have snow flakes falling this morning .. BIG sigh !
Take pictures !!

Linda girl they are very bold as brass and ready to rock when the snow finally disappears .. which is when ??? We has snow falling this morning .. have you ?? eekk!!

Anni girl you have to be fair and share the garden with gnomes and gargoyles .. they really can behave .. most of the time and work? together .. snore together more likely ! haha Love hearing from other G&G fans : )

RP : ) I am a bit red faced for not dropping by more often .. life got in the way ? is your snow melting at all ? I have to come over and see what is going on !

Marguerite said...

1700! Congratulations! that deserves a party, which I'm sure you're gnomy friends are probably planning as we speak.

Rose said...

Good to see that Herman has been accepted by the boys! Congratulations on your 1700th post--wow, that is amazing! I hope your snow melts soon, Joy; you'd think the boys could scare off Old Man Winter:)

CiNdEe said...

Congratulations! It looks you celebrated by giving the boys a polish.

CanadianGardenJoy said...

Marguerite you SO know the boys already ! of course the night before we heard a party ging on without us on the deck .. but boys will be boys won't they ? hehe

Rose this is one stubborn winter even with the boys "BOO'ing" him he is holding on tight !! But some of the snow has melted .. then it snows again ? jeez !

Cindee no worries about warmth .. they sneak into the kitchen and make hot toddies for themselves!!

Hello Joan and thank you : ) can't wait for the REAL Spring to show up!!

Yes Sandy girl the boys have had a bit of a tidy up .. they are glad to be out from underneath that snow !!
