Fruits of the Watering Man


Dr. M is a menace with the watering can. I shouldn't really say menace since everything seems to be thriving quite nicely. We might even get some vegetables out of the deal! But we do joke that the plants are begging him to go on vacation soon & leave them alone.

For some reason, when I looked at the pictures just now this nursery rhyme came to mind. In case there's any confusion, Dr. M's name is not Mary. Heh.




Mary, Mary,



quite contrary,


How does your garden grow?


With silver bells,




and cockle shells,



And pretty maids



all in a row.

  3. Beautiful garden. I wish ours was behaving as nicely! My petunias are so sad. Do you think I should sing to them?

  4. I wish I could borrow him. I tend to forget that with these 96 degree days, my potted things need a wee bit more water and tending.

  9. I am kinda surprised he has felt the need to water with all the rain we've had lately!

  10. Gee, how many times have I heard that rhyme? :D
    He looks like he's doing a good job! When we went away for a few days last week, middle son obviously didn't water the plants like I had instructed, but they're coming back to life!
