    Love these! It’s amazing to see the grass with all those colors :) Did someone make those eggs? They’re beautiful. And well, of course I like the fish :) Thanks so much for sharing!

      The eggs are from Russia and other SSRs when they were SSRs. Each egg is carved out of wood and painted. No two eggs look the same.
      The grass was those amazing colo(u)rs. I did a bit of photo editing, but nothing that really changed the image. I’m hoping this fall this display of grasses will turn those rainbow colo(u)rs too.
      The fish are in a small koi pond in the backyard of the house we rent. The owner lives in the “big house” at the front of the property. So, technically, it’s her pond, grass, trees, etc. But we’ve helped out so much during the years we’ve lived here (fall of 2006), we feel like it’s our yard, fish pond, trees, etc of our own. We container garden, add perennials, and trees to help shape future gardens.
      I’m glad you enjoyed all the colo(u)rs. It was fun finding them in my photo archives.!

        Just lovely. In your case I think I’d consider the yard part mine as well. It sounds beautiful what you’ve done to it :)

          Thank you. What I’d really like to do is to turn the front garden into native wildflowers. Leave the “nice perennials”, and make the mulch “garden” into a vegetable garden. Better than container gardening. I’d turn the back yard into a native meadow with heritage vegetables. Dreams you have when you’ve never owned a house but have had some wonderful gardening opportunities.

          Thanks, Jennifer:
          We’d like to do more, but hesitate to over step the relationship with the landlady and her boyfriend. So we guerilla garden. The gentrification of a local park needs some guerilla gardening. Making plans on how it could be done!


I love dialogue. Do you?
