Taste is For Your Mouth

Well, my birthday is coming up and the boys get excited and want to know what to get me. So I’ve been thinking.

I’m in this ‘trying to convert the black to green thumb’ mode still. With not one plant having died, and having to seemingly convinced the Suicidal Orchid to not, I have decided to go forth and continue more planting. But that means I need a new pot…

… and that brings me to THIS! Yes, I want a Mexican colorful frog pot for my garden. It looks so FESTIVE!! Whoo hoo! Some may be rolling their eyes and saying, “Uh oh. Tacky…", but I say, “FUN!” And I’ve asked the kids to have their Dad get me a ceramic colorful lizard for the garden too. Of couse if birds ever find my garden, all will be covered in bird poop, but we’ll cross that bridge when we get to it.

As for the naming of my nemesis, I am teetering between Target as Grau suggested, because I just think that’s damn funny, and Roman as the Romans were Boudicca’s nemesis. I will probably pass on Denny’s suggestion of naming it ‘Eric’, as funny as it is, as I’m afraid I’ll end up with squirrel sex in my yard. Besides, I don’t want to take the chance of a squirrel coming after me with a shovel… Heh.

Frankly, freesias may flourish in the festive frog.

Couldn't help it, sorry. ;)

Denny's idea *is* funny but you'd also have to worry about the squirrel getting into the scotch. And nobody wants that.

Oh - I like the frogs! I have never seen those before. Of course, you'll also need some garden gnomes and a miniature windmill.

No Flamingos!

Pam- Five times Fast!!!

Zonker- Uh. No. My husband would NOT be happy if this squirrel got into his single malt. No. Not at all!

Eric- We aim to please, my friend. :)

Peggy- My garden is so small. That frog is going to be a big part of it. And that frog? He would CRUSH a gnome!

Several years ago, our daughter (Prochein Amy) gave my husband two flamingos for his birthday. We put them in the back yard. My husband didn't particularly like them, but for some reason I thought they were great! It was a sad day when I had to throw them away because they were falling apart.
