Dandelions

Thursday, September 24th, 2020

Dandelions are a particular favorite of my bunnies. Thought I would try to grow some.

Today I noticed something wrong with the dandelions. My first thought was ash from the wildfires. When I took a closer look, I realized that wasn’t the problem.

Rooster Ornament, Wisteria Tendril, Brugmansia

Wednesday, October 16th, 2019

When I was a child were given Easter chicks. The chicks were cute and cuddly, but they grew into roosters. That would be the roosters that would lie in wait and attack my legs every time I walked out the door. I grew to fear roosters, still. In an attempt to overcome the fear I have rooster stuff randomly placed in the garden and in the house.

When I saw the wisteria tendril wrapped around the rooster, it creeped me out. First for the imagery, second the fear of needing to remove the tendril.

Found Earrings, But Were They Really Lost

Wednesday, July 5th, 2017

Today I was cleaning vases. When I looked in the green glass vessel,

Green Pot

I found a single earring.

Earring

Not sure why it was there. Rather than climbing the stairs and placing it in my jewelry box, I thought I would just put it in this fun little box.

When I opened the box, I found this–

Earrings

I had been looking for the earrings for the past several months. I was sure that they were together and that I put them in a safe place. Just couldn’t remember where that safe place might be.

Now I know. Apparently, my subconscious believes that the little box with the metal lid is a safe place to store earrings. Well, and a nice needle.

Today our lovely girl died. She lived a long life, but it wasn’t long enough for me. I miss her so much.

Duck

I recently acquired this cup and bowl set.

Curious–is the duck nervous about where the guns are pointed?
