Episode #25... The FairyGarden

Willy's Place » The Further Misadventures of Wild Willy
by Wild Willy on September 12, 2006 10:01 AM
Last Fall I offered an autographed packet of Wild Willy Columbine seeds to anyone who donated to the Cancer Society.
After sending out the majority of the packets, I realized how foolish I would feel if I heard that there was any problem with the viability of the seeds so I chilled a packet and started then this Spring.

 -

Now I was faced with the dilema of what do do with 60 Columbine plants. [dunno]
All of my gardens are overflowing already.....

You have those planted in a nice "S" shape...

...and what's the story on the fork... [lala]
...a subliminal message? [dunno]

I like the deer! [thumb] [grin]

The garden looks great Bill!

What about the "Summer Sanctuary" since that is where the pool is, and also cuz of the 's' design of the Columbines. Willy and all his cousins can hang out there in the summertime, sitting by the pool, taking a swim every now and then, relaxing under the shade of the trees, and sunbathing on the rocks.

Wow, your Columbine garden looks terrific, Bill! [clappy] Beautiful job! [kitty] It looks like that bed is getting a lot of sun for Columbine! Geesh, I have all mine in dappled shade, maybe mine should be getting more sun! [dunno]

I really like that curled shape, Bill!
It's all so evenly spaced out too - well done! [thumb]

Are those solar lights in that garden too?
I bet that looks really nice at night.

Do you know if I can sow some columbine seeds here now, in zone 6 for next spring?

While Bill is here landscaping me an area like his Bus Stop (don't forget about that, Bill [Wink] ), he can, also, do me up a garden like that! Love it!

[thumb] i agree, the fork should be called cindy, and the garden should be fairy something. 'cause it is good enough for one.
by afgreyparrot on September 24, 2006 10:57 AM
I hereby declare that the fork is named Cindy then!
I am so proud! [grin]
(...can I officially name Bill's fork?) [nutz]

Hmmmmmmmmm..... The Fairy Garden.... I like that! [grin]
I Googled "Fairy Garden" and most of the sites said that F.G.s need herbs. I'm not planting any herbs! [Frown] So.... what else can I do to turn this into my Fairy Garden? (Plants, statuary etc.)

"Moon Glow" solar lights! They fade from twinkling red to blue to green. It does look great at night. I have them at The Bus Stop as well.

Although flattering, the fork asked me to inform you that he is a boyfork. His name is Forkimer but his friends just call him Forkey.

I think (and hope, partially), that "Forkey" has been moved after almost 2 months... as much as I would like to believe he's still there...
