Did I Say I Was Also 'The Careless Gardener'?!

Clueless in Bizarre Gardening Accident!

Who knew deadheading could be so deadly? While yakking away, I was busily shearing off the gone-by flowers on my groundcover thymes when suddenly I snipped off the tip end of my index finger. Excitement ensued, with a trip to the ER, a two-hour wait to be seen, with me all the while clutching my finger and holding it above my head! No flap of skin to be saved, who knows what happened to it, now the finger is all wrapped up, and I am anxiously wondering if my fingerprints will have to be adjusted down at the FBI.
This will put a crimp in the garden chores for the time being, and you have no idea how many corrections I've had to make trying to type this! Not to mention how stoop, stoop, stoopid I feel! D'Oh!!!!

A Selection of Cane Toppers!

These are such fun. One way to alleviate the drudgery of staking my peonies is to decorate the thin bamboo poles with these cane toppers. Also, when bending over to weed, these make the garden safer, in that I won't gouge out my eye! These are from the vendor stalls at the Chelsea Garden Show. One wooden acorn, and the rest are terra cotta. Try them!
