Garden Friends -- Things in a Row -- Two Questions --
These guys are tin grasshoppers. They look more intricate than the turtles so of course they will be $$$$.
And now for my Thursday Two Questions: (See Thursday Two Questions by Self Sagacity for more reading. You could also make your own by checking in at this link.)
Last week 's post was about mushrooms and things growing in your yard. You can go back (May 10th) and check on responses. Also I wondered if your dog shared your interests.
My Two Questions for this week:
1. What 'pretty' things do you have in your garden or yard? Or if you don't have things now, or to update, what would you like to add?
I would add a fairy garden with a few little fairies here and there. I first discovered the fairy gardens in the Isle of Man when we were peeking in at my roots.
Besides personal fairy gardens they are placed on the side of the road. It will help your luck if you will place a note to the fairy of this garden asking for her assistance.
2. Do you like turtles and grasshoppers?
I love them, especially turtles! Adi likes them too!
2. I would love them both. Turtles more than grasshoppers. I love dragonflies too.
Bonus: I've not had turtle soup. I don't think I ever will either. Escargot fine, but turtle soup? I don't think so.
Have a terrific day. :)
I have some old tin containers placed around my garden as planters. They have a little age on them and look really pretty when the flowers are blooming.
I do like turtles and grasshoppers and butterflies, bees and most creepy crawly critters.
I've never tried turtle soup but I have had frog legs. The soup I might try if the opportunity presented itself.
I have a miniature water feeder of ceramic for the birds and also a much larger one.
I love turtles, frogs and fairies but don't want to try turtle soup.
I have never had turtle soup but do eat turtle meat, the water turtles. They are very tasting but difficult to remove from their shells.
Grasshoppers made good fish bait and the chickens love to eat them.
I did not know that grasshoppers can change their color to match the surroundings. These grasshoppers are in the States or where?
I don't have a garden since I'm in a condo, but I just potted some beautiful plants in a redwood planter that has a yellow cala lily in the center surrounded by orange gerber daisies, some ivy, and alyssim.(Don't know about the spelling of any of those!)
In my dream house/yard, we'll have the richest top soil making flowers and grass grow so lusiously that Better Homes & Garden will beg to photograph our place. lol
I think a little fairy garden would be adorable. I would love to have a gazebo in my garden, too. Perhaps, a little garden pond as well. Oh the endless possibilities!
We have grasshoppers, but turtles and frogs I don't see too much. Skinks, we do have, though.
I like fairies too. I would love to have some fairies in my garden. It would be nice to have some butterflies too. I used to have some dragon flies, but they didn't keep well in the rain and have since faded and broke.
I like turtles better. I can see having a few as pets. Grasshoppers are fascinating to look at and there are so many different species, but I can't see having them as pets.
I do not have a garden, but I think if I did I would want fairies in them, too. That's a really cute idea.
I'm not the hugest fan of grasshoppers, but I do have an admiration for turtles. Except snapping turtles. Snapping turtles are actually one of my biggest fears.
I've never even seen turtle soup. I would have to see it before I decide if I would eat it.
1. I don't have a garden, but if I do have one I'd love to have all kinds of flowers in it.
2. I don't know if I like them or not..I haven't had much experience with them up close.
3. I've never had turtle soup...not sure how I feel about it, but foods are good to try.
Have a lovely weekend!
