Plants, Gargoyle and Me

Hi Everyone ;o) I'm back! LOL ;o) I can put pictures up using Interent Explorer and not Google Chrome? I don't understand?
And, the postal strike is on now! Canada post locked out the employees!

Ok, let's get on to some fun things ;o) My first picture is of my fushia hanging plants. Great for hummingbirds ;o)






The next picture you see, is little purple flowers coming up from the ground. They grow from those red and green leaves and I've seen the stem grow 6" to 8". These plants are called bugleweeds. There are many different types. Very hardy plant and they spread! Also, they bring in the hummingbirds too ;o) And butterflies like them as well ;o) Just to let everyone know, I plant bugleweeds, and clover throughout my lawn ;o) I will take a picture of that sometime. It's fantastic and you can run the lawnmower right over them. It will cut the flowers off, but as I said, bugleweeds spread and so does clover. No more seeding! They take care of themselves and the lawn looks so pretty, purple and green ;o) My neighbours think I'm nuts, but that's ok ;o)








The next picture is of my Gargoyle! I love him. He is my protector of my garden. As he looks through the tall wild grass ;o) Doesn't he have a cute smile ;o)








Oh, the last picture is of me and my green hemp gardening hat! ;o) I love my hat!! LOL ;o) Keep on smiling everyone ;o)

  1. Fuschia are so gorgeous, I didn't even think to get some this year! Your lawn sound very colorful and lush. Did you see Rue's post the other day about gargoyles (on Rue and Hyssop blog). It was full of info, and now I am obsessed with getting at least one. You have a great one! And I love your hat!!

  3. Well aren't you cute as a button in your smile and hat!! Cute as a crow girl gets !!! Your flowers and gargoyle are nice too!! Thanks for your email!!! I appreciate what you wrote. Us crows have to stick together. Oh and if read the book The Return of Merlin there are some cool crows in there plus most of Charles de Lints books have the Crow Girls in them.

  7. I love your plant pictures and your gargoyle but my favorite is the one of you, little crow girl, you look so pretty and happy in your gardening hat!!!!Hey guess what, I had trouble getting Magaly's button for the witchy campaign onto my site. All I got was a tiny square and no pic. I just thought it was me being dumb but maybe it was Chrome! I sooooooo wanted your little baby witch crow with the frog jumping on it!!!! Hey Donna, what is The Return of Merlin? That book sounds familiar! Toooo da loo!!!

    Oh I love Gargoyle's I remember (I think) I fell in love with them after seeing an old Donald Sutherland/Julie Christie movie called "Don't Look Now" it may be a bit dated now but SPOOooOKY, anyway, set in Venice, when I got to Venice (Italy not Beach) years later I was blown away by how FEW they had, seemed like I saw more in Scotland LOL anyway, love the little dudes, & look at yours, obviously doing his job in the garden because it's a blooming delight!!!

  32. you have such an infectious smile Stacy, it's great to see you smiling at us :-)
    we have such a short season, it's nice to enjoy all our plants. Fuschias are among my fave, but I've yet to see any hummingbirds around them.
    have a great day!
