Mary, Mary Quite Contrary....

Mary Mary quite contrary,
How does your garden grow?
With silver bells and rusted nails
And pretty maids all in a row.



Check out my bumper crop of rusted nails! I'm not sure whether
I should can them or make a pie. I'm open to suggestions.


I do really like to garden, but sometimes I am so perplexed by the randomness of it all. Such as my inability to grow zucchini, but to have such gorgeous dahlias.

But seriously, I have no idea how these nails got into my garden in the first place! This is not the first year I have had a vegetable garden, and I have spent hour after hour on my knees weeding, so how come I am finding them now?? Do they drop from the sky? Are they a gift from the squirrels? SERIOUSLY. My grandfather was the person that built my vegetable garden and I know he wasn't THAT crazy. He was an amazing gardener and had "The Knack". That, and the time.

I have neither. But I try.

Totally can comprehend the whole gardening thing. :)

Make them into a cobbler, that's what I say. At least your dahlias are pretty!

Oh my goodness! Those flowers are beautiful, and huge! Rachel is getting so big, I remember when you came over and I cut her roses from the garden. I happy to see that she still loves flowers.

Those flowers are BEAUTIFUL! Maybe they sucked all the nutrients away from the zucchini.

One of these days when we have a house I want to learn to garden. My dad is amazing at it. I am afraid my thumb won't be so green.

Wow! I LOVE dahlias, and what a great picture of Rachel!
