Garden fairies here.
We are garden fairies and we are noticing an addition to this blog page which we believe we should call attention to for the sake of those how may not be so astutely aware, so attuned, to actively watchful as we garden fairies are.
We are watchful, though for the life of us, we cannot figure out how Carol let a common, fading, chive flower photo-bomb her picture of Clematis ‘Rooguchi’.
She should take more time with her pictures. Really, she should.
Anyway, once Carol isn’t looking, Ol’ Tangle Rainbowfly intends to take one of those clematis blooms and make a new hat for himself. He claims it has been years since he had a new hat but we know that’s not true because he’s been strutting around here with a red tulip for a hat for the last month.
Now, where he got that red tulip hat we don’t know because as a general rule and by strictest policy and order and decree across the garden, Carol does not generally or with any intent or foresight plant red flowers if she can in anyway avoid doing so. Whatever. She has a container with a dark red geranium on the patio right now.
Anyway, all we know is Ol’ Rainbow has called dibs on the Clematis ‘Rooguchi’ or at least first right of refusal of this bloom for his new summer hat.
Meanwhile, we have lost all track of what this post is about. We promised ourselves we would stay focused and get right to the point and use as few words as possible because when we ramble along we think folks get all antsy and “hey, get to the point”. So that is what we will do.
The point is we garden fairies would like to announce here on this very blog that Carol has added a silver emblem denoting she has received a 2014 Silver Award of Achievement from the Garden Writers Association for an e-Newsletter Article she wrote back in March 2013, “Tips for Hiring a Garden Designer“.
We are garden fairies.

Congratulations Carol! And I'm sure Ol' Rainbow really needs a summer hat to replace his spring hat…

Wow, Congratulations Carol!
Congratulations. Isn't it a delightful feeling to know that your work is appreciated.
Congratulations. I cannot think of anyone more worthy of this award – and many others. It seems to me I remember that Carol once was designated the gardener they would most like to live next to. I second that. Again.
