Following the advice of WHO and in solidarity with the lovely people of Italy, I am in self-quarantine until, of course, we run out of gin. So today, I’m inviting you to my house ….
Come a little closer; I won’t bite …
This solid wood door was originally a dull shade of beige but then I discovered Beet Bonanza Delight. The Jade plant to the side has endured all sorts of torture, including lack of sun but is still holding on. Amazing. The figure greeting you at the door with the ears and the antlers is a reindeer, of course, left over from a Christmas long ago. He actually provides a good place to hang wet garden gloves, tools and umbrellas.
Swinging from the lamp is Guard Toad First Class, Edmond Von Petty. He has ESP.
If he senses that you have a black heart or want money, his chimes begin to quiver in warning to Greta Gecko who wishes to keep her rank a mystery.
Since you all have golden hearts and want no money from me (I hope), you may press Greta’s button without fear of being zapped.
Have you brought your card? Well, there’s always room on the fridge.
Yes, I’m one of those crazy people who tacks everything on her frig.
I also planted an Australian fern right next to the front door because I love ferns.
Unfortunately these ferns can reach 16 feet high and wide. He’s also very affectionate and so watch out as you leave!
Sorry you have to go so soon but I know you have other doors to check out over at Norm’s Place. Come again.
