Fisherboy in the Jungle!!!

jeannespinesAugust 20, 2010

Back in early May, I posted this pic of my "fisherboy" who sits at my pond & is quite old...we bought him at my DH's parents estate sale some yrs ago:

That wire bucket beside him was a TS find...has Japanese Bloodgrass growing in it.

Well, today (August), I took a pic to share he is still fishing but he's in the "jungle" with Elephant Ears now!

Another view:

Here's a close-up:

What a difference a few hot & humid mos. make, uh! Thanks for lookin'! Jeanne S.

How Cute! I had one for many years, but he finally fell apart. Hmmm...... I need to look for a new one. I have a nice little water plant box he sits by.

You're right....what a difference a few months make! He looks quite at home there amongst the elephant ears!

Everything sure filled in nicely. He looks like he likes it there. My yard is barely alive with all the happenings this last 3 months, no time to garden. We got my dad 4 finches & he can see them out the kitchen window on the counter on the patio. He is thrilled & gives him something to do. He used to have several birdhouses in the yard so this is good substitute.Jan

He's a smart little guy for finding himself a spot in the shade! Love the little lantern and turtle you have by him too.

My Mother had one....My brother got it.
I'll bet it got washed out into the bay
during Hurricane Ivan.
I haven't seen it lately...

I like spring and summer photos of the garden and your little guy seems to enjoy the elephant ears. I have a jungle of them this year along with banana trees with bananas...pretty cool for Indiana.
