Mama Zen said...

So, THAT'S what my garden needs!

Jessie said...

Okay Galen ... I just discovered that today's post (10/9) was filed in the wrong month. I have corrected the situation.

So, if there's anyone out there who has stopped by earlier, and would like to take a turn-about and return ... well, it would put a smile on my face (it's been gone for the week) ...

MIke Kilgore said...

THIS is why i don't garden!!!!!Well done G...Mines up

Missy said...

It's the month for such shenanigans

As usual, a great 55 with a "kick-ass" ending, as you would probably say yourself.

I'm taking a break for few weeks. I spend way too much time blogging and have ignored by house, paperwork, correspondence, financial matters, my husband and the cat. I have to do some freelance art work and digital photo retouching and take care of a few matters for my 95-yr-old mom ---all time-consuming tasks. So I'll be back flashing 55s in a couple of weeks.

Connie said...

You have a way with words.

Here is mine.

A rose by any other name.......

Good one G-man. :)

secret agent woman said...

Maybe any true gardener should end as fertiizer?

pheromone girl said...

Loved it! I owe you mine - but you'll have to wait *cough* 'cause I'm sick.

Go wash your hands :-)
