Along Every Good Fence

Is something showing off 
just hoping you'll rescue it.


All along the fence is something begging to be seen.

Please join me at Pahl's Market.

"Oh, the Thinks you can Think!" Dr. Seuss

It is the nature of garden centers to attract people, 
so we may return home and fill our unhurried spaces 
that are aching to be reclaimed.

It goes without question that every flower garden 
must interrupt the quietness for birds eager to visit.

"A garden is a grand teacher. 
It teaches patience and careful watchfulness;
 it teaches industry and thrift; 
above all it teaches entire trust." Gertrude Jekyll

"So plant your own gardens and decorate your own soul, instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers." - Jorge Luis Borges

Oh, I almost forgot.  Below is one of the sweet, edible hopefuls I brought home.

Places like this are so much fun to visit. Lots of great things to see. I think my favorite here is the large rose metal sculpture.

Does the cat in the hat like to eat fresh green grass like our cats do?
