I Don't Know Why They Talk About Us.......

We started installing the pansies at the Big House on Friday, and I have to say they look pretty amazing.  It has become almost a competition amongst the great people who work with me there, to see who has the best-looking finished beds. The latest is that each individual pansy needs to be planteded with its biggest blooms facing in the same direction....honestly, that's THEIR rule, not mine!  After the first thousand or so, we need to find ways to entertain ourselves in what would otherwise be a pretty dull job!

Speaking of entertaining ourselves, one of the houses in an adjoining subdivision was having a yard sale Friday morning, and they were just setting up when we got to work.  They clearly didn't know about Patti's Halloween fetish when they put out a witch's hat for only a dime!  And how can one wear a witch's hat without a vintage fuschia bicycle to match?  Eight o'clock in the morning, and she's riding up and down the street.......


  1. I really got a smile from the hat. I didn't know that about pansy plants. Putting the best face forward, huh!

  2. Very elegant! I applaud Patti, and state my firm belief that if everyone could do this on the job whenever and wherever they felt like it, there would be a whole lotta job satisfaction - and fewer people would "go postal"!

  3. Now that's a girl after my own heart!
