Teasing you with more GJ.

9bark(6 semi-desert)July 7, 2011

Hello! I have a few more things to share!

I had to move my Sun Power hosta from where it was (bleaching). I think it will look better in the partial shade!

I love love love drift wood and only had a chance to find a few pieces before the Thompson river started to rise. The black widows seem to enjoy them too!

The only painted gnome I own who has a love for clean teeth and plasticized beetle keychains!

Last but no least a zoom out of the corner of my shade garden. The brown bottle is very oddly shaped like it was melted. Found it under an abadoned trailer years ago. The green lantern saved from someone's trash! Mmm Hostas!!

Oh your Hosta's are looking wonderful! (I need to move my 2 Sunpowers also...lost the big Maple tree a few yrs bk & the Hostas don't do as well).

anyway, I think your driftwood makes the best GJ ever! I love it, too! (but you can keep Ms. Willow)! Ugh!

Like how you've added 'glass' in your gardens...w/o doing totems or flowers...looks great just sitting among your plants! TFS! Jeanne S.
(oh, that gnome is a cutie, too...I also own only one...they get in too much trouble!...but this guy is pretty laid back!) LOL!

I loved your gnome, had me laughing out loud with his toothbrush. Too cute. The melted brown bottle is neat. I like odd bits of glass things, and love driftwood tho don't find much around Phoenix. LOL.

Your gardens look neat.
hugs, Karen

Your plants all look so healthy! Love all the GJ additions, that bottle maybe got too close to an incinerator! Great shade garden! I don't think I've ever had a Hosta. I do love driftwood! TFS Jan

what a great garden. Driftwood and glass looks very nice the way you have it placed. And of course the gnome to save the day!!

We live below you in Washington state. Your gardens look a little like ours. I love the gnome. I don't have any, but I get such a kick out of them in other people's yards. I love driftwood, too. For nearly 30 years we lived in a community with a private beach. Can't beach comb there since we moved unless I'm with a community member. If I go to a public beach I'm fighting the crowds.

Gotta love hostas! I love your bottles and lamp in the garden. They look great scattered among the flowers. And I have a weakness for driftwood too. Being handicapped, it is hard for me to get down to the shoreline of Lake Michigan to look for driftwood. Walkers don't do well in the sand! lol But you can keep those black widows! I think I'll stick with our garden spiders.

WhooHoo! Another BC Gnomie Homie!!!heh heh! I just started collecting gnomes last year, old cement ones, on their way to the scrap recycling pile at the Recycle depot...hauled them out, been giving them new noses/hats/legs/whatever they need, painting them and they are good as new! I have 2 that should be holding something...I will have to make them hold something "intersting" now....heh heh!
