12.20.10 ~ Patio
"Even if something is left undone, everyone must take time to sit still and watch the leaves turn."
~ Elizabeth Lawrence, author & gardener

When I purchased my condo in 1999, this little creature was left among the weeds in my patio area.

Several years ago, one of my daughters asked, "Why do you still have that little duck? it doesn't seem like it really fits with the ambience of your patio."

"Well, I can't get rid of it," I replied.

"Why not? just toss it in a recycle bag," she answered.

"It's the GARDEN GUARD-ESS! if I get rid of it, it would be bad "karma" for the patio & flowers," I whispered.

The GARDEN GUARD-ESS sits proudly among the winter greenery...


  1. Of course you can't get rid of her!

  2. She is awfully cute, and what a great story!

  3. Oh, love it! No, I agree, you can't get rid off it.

  4. She is very cute...I love little winged creatures in the garden and I know what you mean about getting rid of her and the karma...I feel that way about some things too.(-:
