Garden fairies here! We are garden fairies and we barely have time to write this blog post, but we feel it is our duty and responsibility to make clear what we lament. What we lament is the lack of notice that there would be tree trimming going on in our garden. Now, we are not talking about the tree trimming that Carol does, which is rare, infrequent, and to us, inconsequential, except sometimes when she makes a boo-boo and saws off a limb she regrets cutting off. It is at those times … [Read more...] about Garden Fairies Lament the Lack of…
Garden fairies here. We are garden fairies and once again, it is apparently up to us to save this garden from, well, Carol.

No, we cannot and will not tell you what those subtle clues are as that would reduce their effectiveness—their magic—if people knew about them.

Garden fairies here! We are garden fairies and we cannot be left behind. We would like everyone to know that we followed the breadcrumb trail from Blogger to Wordpress, and here we are! Did Carol think we would find this new location? Did she think for one fleeting minute that we'd never post again? Was she going to go looking for us if we didn't eventually show up here? All good questions but now that we are here, they are moot questions. We are garden fairies. The only relevant question … [Read more...] about Garden Fairies Find the New Location
