I’ve been so busy with other projects this season that I didn’t have time to make my own plant markers, so I nicked these from this guy who won’t be needing his anymore. Guess he used to do a bit of gardening himself – had quite a big green thumb, I’m told.
Since they’re a bit over-sized, I had my own l’il sprouts, Lady Sweet Pee and Mr. Seedling, help me place them.

I laughed, I cried… and I laughed again.. and am still laughing (as is Rick).

OK.. now I have to steal this idea as well.

Yeah, it started as a lark, figured I’d re-use the boards on something else, but I kinda like’em. (And steal away; imatation is blah-blah-blah…:-)

your muscles must have been aching from holding in the laughter—you mentioned them when you posted the “weeds markers” but kept it a secret. You must have been laughing and laughing as you waited to post this.

I have indeed been sitting on this a while – had the text written over a week ago, and found the JGG grave pick, but didn’t make the things until Saturday, or snap the picks until Sunday. I work well under pressure.

I figured someone, likely you, Debbie, would pick up on the excessive use of “real” in the weed marker post. Can’t say you weren’t forewarned, eh?

looking again at your markers, I’m thinking about how I can use them in my gardens as a bit of sculptural interest. And I had a thought. (oh I love it when that happens. Rick – not so much hahaha)
Rather than marking “plants” I think I’ll mark my little garden areas.

To make conversations easier around here, I have a little garden area that is called “The Blowing Wind” (because of a sculpture located in it) and there’s the “Tipi” of course, and so on and so on… I might use your marker idea to label the garden sections.

Well, I’m no Jack Benny, more like Rodney Dangerfield – don’t get no respect.

They were messing around with the shrink-ray I built in the attic, even though I told them not to – kids these days, they never listen…
