How does your garden grow?
This week's display chain theme is our interpretation of spring gardens.....
(Note - it really is Tuesday even for me this time around.....)
Sadly, this is our last week of the display chain hosted by Misi from 1890 Gable House Musings. (This week, Traci from York Mountain Primitives is co-hostessing.) Misi and Traci saved a dilly for the last. More than any of the other clever themes, this one has thrown me for a loop, because, as you know, I live in Nod.... And, Lady Spring finds Nod ever so slowly.....I think, with the long, relentless, winters here, she just forgets about us sometimes or loses her way (but don't tell her I said that....I'd hate to be subjected to one of her cruel hail storms ~or worse~ out of spite....)
I didn't think I would find myself apologizing so often for my pitiful offerings, yet here I am doing it again.....but here we go.....
"Mary, Mary, quite contrary, how does your garden grow?
Well, this Mary's spring garden grows quite contrarily, for I live in Nod you know....."
What I see are blank canvases......waiting to be painted with color and life.
Beds waiting for new plants to nourish and roots to tickle their deep dark recesses:
Containers waiting their turn at being useful again:
(Yeah, that's barren and empty too - I told you....things are different in Nod!)
While I say goodbye to these:
And dream of things to come, I am wooed to sleep by the lullaby of my little froggy friends:
And wake to the melodic songs of my feathered neighbors:
I hope you visit 1890 Gable House Musings to find the links to all the other chain gang members' posts. I strongly suspect that Lady Spring plays favorites and has already visited many of them, so there is sure to be color and beauty to more than compensate for my contrary spring garden offerings.....
I also would like to express my sincerest gratitude to Misi (and her several guest hostesses along the way, including Traci and Amy from Bumble Bee Lane) for organizing and hostessing this wonderful thing called the Tuesday Display Chain for as long as I can remember....I know it brought me - and many others - much joy.
(PS - A special thank-you to Linda of Parker's Paradise for my new blog header....)
