Well . . . I have been known to hose down a biker and his damn straight
pipes. They make more noise than a freakin' semi. Thing with getting old
is that it affects your judgement. Where once you'd have held your piece
suddenly, you're ol' alligator mouth. But kids? You bad woman. Nah, I'm
not down with hosing down kids unless it is a very hot day and they
agree. I got me one of them motion detection sprinklers to keep the
"Hounds from Hell" from romping around in the lettuce patch. I always
forget when I turn it on. It's the last thing on my mind when I head for
the tools and, wham. Like I say, not bad on a hot day but we be putting
together a string of foggy morning and, just, comfortable afternoons.
When the kids come back and TP your garden, you'd best laugh with them
because you had it comin';-)

I love those G Scale Trains and the amazing work which goes into the
landscape, etc. One of these days I may get into doing that. This
isn't our final house so it won't happen in this garden, but maybe our
final house...impermanence permitting.
freshly buried pizza it seems. my husband just let wyatt plant his leftover
pizza slice from lunch to see if he could grow a whole "BIG" pizza.

Razzle Dazzle garden: sculpture made from a (discarded in the
neighbor's trash) bentwood end table on a railroad car wheel base
Garden shed: old screen door with sweet peas growing on it.
Various 'artifacts' old garden tools, sprinklers, watering cans
rusty stuff etc (all artfully arranged of course)
Butterfly garden: 2 artificial BFlies, arbor into vegie garden
Faerie garden: garden fairies and a lecherous gnome
Other: Rock turtle sculpture made from 7 large rocks, total

All of this sounds like a lot of stuff, and it is; it is arranged so
of the smaller things are hidden in a natural habitat of foliagerocks,
some 'disappear in summer, and I 'find them" again in winter.
Others are placed so that only one is in view at a time.
