The Faeries Won!

When I went out to chase Tessie and Spike away from the watering tank this morning, this is what I found instead. 

Tessie messed up.  She went into the house and went to sleep... Not a good idea when you are trying to protect something from faeries....

They took over and on top of that, they took my gazebo. Maybe I should have stayed awake too...
On top of that, they hired Gordon Dragon to keep watch whilst they fetched their belongings.

I think that faeries are a lot like a certain witch I know.  Bribery, with cookies and tea.

It works every time. 
Gordon is a good watch dragon.  He moves around the property and pretends to sleep a lot. 

Just don't get too close... He loves fingers...
Here is a long distance shot... I am not risking any fingers. 

Considering that yesterday at this time, the whole thing was a pile of dirt, I am very pleased with what the faeries finished.
Since they finished that, I had a chance to plant a lot of succulent starts in a birdcage and hang it outside the bedroom window. 

I am going to have to put a sign somewhere to remind me to drag the hose over there and water them until they take hold.

I have a few other ideas up my sleeve to compete with the faeries.  I think that they will approve.  It is all to their benefit. 

Back to work.

See you tomorrow.  If the faeries or Gordon Dragon don't get me!

wind. I have thought of making one for inside. I do have a few fairies. And a small

Phyllisa, I'll tell you a secret. The gazebo is heavy enough to stay in place, but can be easily lifted and brought inside in bad weather. So, no problem!

I really like that, I was thinking some of a fairy garden next summer and I want to make all the components myself. Hope you are feeling ok and thinking of you all the time. Hugs, G.
