Why do I garden?

Why do I garden? Simply, it makes me feel good. Strike that, it makes me feel great!

Sunburns, stiff knees, aching back, poison ivy blisters, wasp stings, mosquito bites and a host of related pains doesn't change this. Gardening makes me feel incredible.

So, it's no wonder that whimsy in the garden makes me smile. I just adore finding out that others enjoy gardening as much as I do. The garden owner who put this in her garden told me that it was very theraputic. When ever she ran into this mean woman in her town, she'd come home and dunk this head under the water!

Of course when I saw this bird house I just had to have it. It's been in the garden for four years now but nobody's moved in :-(

I saw this garden swimmer while on a daylily tour. Isn't she delightful?

P.S. Thanks Mary Anne for teaching me how to reduce my images!
