Life is Often Too Seriously Taken, so for that reason, I'm going to post a silly poem from time-to-time. These first several will each be taken from a small booklet entitled, Lighten Up! 100 Funny Little Poems, compiled and edited by Bruce Lansky.

New Gardener Friends

I went to visit my friends for our first Fall/Winter Garden Club get-together last week.
Look at the group in my car!
(for a better peek into the car, click on the photo!)

You might have recognized Gardener Gladys and Susan Scare-the-Birds in the backseat.
Here's a post about how Gladys has helped me in the garden from July 16, 2009.

Susan has appeared in several fun posts (and outfits). Here are a couple of them "in action!" One from July 22, 2008 - a meme about Garden Whimsey, again on August 19, 2008 and one a couple of days later on August 21, 2008.

Perhaps you remember Thoroughly Modern Mona from a couple of earlier posts: Her introduction first of May 30, 2007, and her questionable gardening abilities in the second on February 15, 2008.

This photo was taken October 20 while we worked.
All three ladies observed and critiqued as we gardeners each began an attempt
at bringing to life more Gardening Friends. :-)

This past Monday, a few more of my friends gathered at my house, some of whom decided to attempt a friendship with a gardener, too. As before, Gardener Gladys, Susan Scare-the-birds, and Mona watched as we worked.

I was sorry I didn't get photos of this second group, but we'll be back at it in a couple of weeks. I'll be updating! :-)

I like the idea behind the gardeners and appreciate the work that went into them, but I'm not very comfortable with them .....I'm sure they're very nice people and all that, but just a little too creepy for me!!!

Well... Mona is a little too realistic for my general taste. I'm not sure what I really should do with her. But the others are really just for fun. Susan stays outdoors all Summer - which is why she's retiring and I need another "head!" ;-)
