Inch By Inch, Row By Row

Health issues have kept me from feeling much like gardening and the foul weather made yard work unpleasant at best so far this summer.

I scattered a few flower seeds and put in 2 hot pepper plants and two tomato plants, but that was pretty much the extent of the "gardening" that has taken place since last summer.

That became very obvious when I looked over the flower beds and noticed the height and breadth of the weeds!

This morning the Tiny Prince and I set to work weeding.

Only Daddo was awake (he took the pictures) so we filled up the big yellow bucket with Stuff That Doesn't Belong Here a couple of times and sang The Garden Song.

The Tiny Prince loves music!

(Surprisingly, there is no poison ivy, though it used to abound in this part of the yard. Perhaps it has migrated elsewhere.)

Once the weeding was done, the Tiny Prince decorated the front porch with original drawings depicting the history of Western Civilization as outlined in Wikipedia.

He will be submitting photos of his chalk renderings for inclusion.

Sadly, the artwork will probably remain only until the nightly thunderstorm rolls through.

If it's on schedule, that will be right around dinner time.


Wish I had a little prince like that to help me weed my garden.
Awwww...what a cutie!
Ann, the Tiny Prince is so adorable, and so talented too!

I had my own Tiny Prince over today and I'm exhausted.
He is growing so fast! Seems like just yesterday you were waiting for him to arrive. Hope that your MRI went well. Let us know how you are and remember we care!
I am really really hoping that you will be able to help me. For a few years now I have been the entrusted guardian of a very special (knitted) penguin. Unfortunately, and very traumatically, I lost it recently and would really like to try to redeem myself a little by knitting a replacement.

I saw your photo of a penguin who looks very similar (2005 02 01) and have indeed bought some on ebay that were identical (but the seller didn’t have the pattern) so I know that a pattern exists somewhere but have been unable to locate one so far.

Please let me know if you have or know where I can get hold of the instructions for making this.

Yours, in great anticipation


PS I have a photo of him if you need.
