Pulling these from my Twitter feed for Monday morning July 23, 2018:
So here it is Monday morning when a melancholy stroll through the garden is interrupted by #SharkWeek Sharks eating chive flowers, bat face cuphea, sharks swimming thru the lawn.
I tried to run from #SharkWeek sharks in my garden, but they were everywhere. Sharks eating organically grown cucumbers (Sumter), green Paul Robeson tomatoes, and attacking my scarecrow.
Unbelievably, #SharkWeek sharks even attacked my garden fish sculpture and my defenseless garden gnome. Pure garden carnage. What a Monday morning!
With all the #SharkWeek garden carnage this Monday morning, even the Rudbeckia in my pollinator garden was not safe. Though, in the shark’s defense, it did look tasty.
After witnessing all that, I went back inside for some online education in photography, water gardens and pollinators as part of some courses I am enrolled in.
Later I needed to take the dogs out to go potty. Just when I think it is safe to go back out into the garden, #SharkWeek sneak attack at the mailbox on my Passiflora vine as I reach for my mail. The flower just opened today. Died so young.
Beware of lawn sharks and teach your garden gnomes self-defense.
Yours in #SharkWeek gardening,
The Garden Maiden
