The gnomes have been busy!



Three more mystery plants, that I did not plant, in the gnomes gardens. The bottom one is like a small violet, light purple in color.

Alert! Alert! - a hidden bit of bragging. One of my NILs is a college football coach. His last two jobs he signed up to be an assistant coach and then, out of the blue, the head coach scappered. NIL was thrust into the head coach job. The first college, WS,  made all sorts of promises and then fired him anyway. So off he went to SS, moving family and household and dog, and the head coach did the same run for the hills maneuver. Once again NIL was head coach with no time to adjust. THIS WEEKEND SS played WS and BEAT THEM!!! NIL was gentlemanly and gracious and refused to talk trash about his old team but we, his relatives, were high five-ing, dancing around and yahoo-ing all over the place.  :-)

Bravo for NIL!!! I hate it when I see sports personalities trash-talking. Very unsportsmanlike.

How do you suppose they grew there? Fly away seeds, or sneaked in by them? Surprised there are no pumpkins yet in the patch.

We try to stick to a rule of no Halloween, pumpkins, etc until October 1 or as close as we can stand it....
