Fairy Garden Inspiration

I’m not talking about the shoes, but about the weather and also my ability to get things done. I have been writing, and one of the things I wrote was an article on Making Fairy Houses. And ever since I keep thinking about putting together at least one, and possibly more Fairy Houses, which inspired me to do some collecting while out on a much needed walk in the park.
If you live in Ohio you know that it has been a cool spring, but on my walk and today it has been actually hot. Hot as in near 70 degrees when I was at the park, and today…. when I should be outside, but have a million computer tasks and indoor cleanup to do… it is nearing 80 degrees. Now, that is hot in anyone’s book. Although “some like it hot“, heehee.
Anyway, I had to rest after walking an hour up an down small hills ( I’ve been a virtual slug all winter… and not up to par), and I sat under a Hickory tree. That meant I could collect some empty Hickory nut hulls; one with moss on it. That kind of thing delights people who do arts and crafts, and is perfect for a potential fairy house thinga-ma-gig.
Back To My Garden
We tilled up the vegetable patch partially until the tiller went kaput. My son actually said he was interested in helping me plant, so I am excited about the prospect of that! Maybe one of my children will catch the garden passion, yet. Even if it is the last one… you know what they say about last but not least!
Well I have strewn this post with enough cliches to load a larder this time around. No- I have no idea what sort of metaphor I’m after… but I have been busy with all sorts of gardening and non-gardening tasks. That is the way of spring, isn’t it? We seem in a waiting pattern all through the late winter and everyone complains about how they wish it were spring, and then it bursts in upon us. Chores and plans to implement all those dreamt about activities sprout everywhere.
Here is me hoping for rain!
Well, because I am off to other things, no pictures or photos right at the moment. You know that is not my strong suit, but I will try to get something up soon so as not to wait as long as I usually do before posting another communication with the few of you still reading my blog.
