Miscellany Nuts

Just a few miscellaneous things today!
Six Word Fridays

Our family is nutty for Legos!

That's one nutty kitty up there!

"Curiouser and curiouser!"
Lewis Carroll

Green Onion Seeds, in the making.

This particular bunch of onions were
 planted last year and I've let
 others grow another season to mature 
so I can collect the seeds!

Always hang around water when possible.

My oh my, geese are gathering.

My Hollyhock plants are so confusing.  

This volunteer Hollyhock  is blooming well.  
My other Hollyhocks not at all.

"Comparison is the thief of joy."
Theodore Roosevelt

"Who in the world am I? Ah yes, that's the great puzzle."
Lewis Carroll

My generous gnomes have been busy 
inviting fairies of all kinds into
 my gardens as well this year.

Quite possibly even holding some captive! 

Enjoy your day, and miscellaneous stuff!

"That's when the great stuff happens,
when you're not checking yourself
all the time, being critical of yourself
and what other people are doing."
Carol Kane



Terrific 6 word captions. I too love to be near water. NEAR it, not on it/in it.

Ironic that the hollyhock came up on it's own while the ones you planted not doing well. I've always liked hollyhocks...used to make leis out of the blossoms.

And legos...boy have they evolved since my kids were young, long ago.

Volunteer plants so often do better than the conscipts.
Love your miscellany.

Legos are very fancy these days, than the ones I had access to when I was a 'kid'.
I think about getting some, from time to time. I am glad you guys use them for recreation and creativity - great idea, if you ask me.
The Hollyhocks - sometimes look like like Hibiscus to me, somewhat confusing to me.
I love that boat by the dock. Yours?
Have a Joyous Weekend!
Peace :)

I assume with all these Lego's it is hard to tidy up. Projects have to be completed.

Good morning, I love to be near the water too. The legos are a very cool toy, I can see why your kiddies love them. Your flowers are lovely. Have a happy weekend!

So that's a real green onion (I only knew the song). My hollyhocks are doing well, they come back every year.

Ah, the volunteer HAD to survive. It's got to be strong! Lovely photos of a lovely life!
