There were the live variety, too, but I steered clear of them. They had a lone gosling in their midst and looked ready to defend it.

Umm, yeah, I think I would have preferred this little goose over the real one, too.
This fence is gorgeous with the roses.

I think I know why it’s a statue
It’s such a perfect setting
Must’ve thought it’s “arrived” 😛

Michaela, Vimal, thanks for your comments 🙂
Amanda, you would have loved the real garden – it is truly for the romantic! And I just have to tell you… remember when I went to Jondarayan and raved about a lady I met who asked us if we were homechoolers, and invited us home for a roast turkey dinner? Well, this garden lady was just as lovely. Truly, the kind of person you leave feeling as if you have been friends for years.
I met the garden lady almost as randomly as the turkey dinner lady. Our farmer friend told me to drive around there and photograph the garden. He said just tell her the farmer sent you. (Scary way to show up at someone’s house, and so not what we do in the city!! 😯 )
As it turns out, not only is she a clever, wonderful, generous lady, she is a lifelong friend of my turkey dinner lady who lives four hours drive away, and her brother works for us in town. Isn’t that weird? A beautiful, delightful, to be thankful for kind of weird, and I’m sure God meant me to know her 🙂

Wow Mrs BB, that is just the most amazing story!! What a small world we really do live in… or perhaps the Lord has a greater plan hmmm?!
Love you and thank you for the picture of the rose… it looks glorious on my blog. Had to make it smaller of course, but it still looks beautiful.

Thank you, dear one. Somehow, call it my perceptive nature perhaps, but I don’t think I’ll be able to tempt you with the one I posted tonight. 😉
(though every garden needs a little wildlife 😛 )
