Soft moss a downy pillow makes, and green leaves spread a tent,
Where faerie fold may rest and sleep until their night is spent.
The bluebird sings a lullaby, the firefly gives a light,
The twinkling stars are candles bright, Sleep, Faeries all, Goodnight.

A Pixie flower??

Hi everyone! This is a picture of the only thing that is growing in my yard right now! My maltipoo Pixie had a grand time playing in our first snowfall of the year last week. I enjoyed the snow but I'm glad to see it go along with those 20 degree temperatures during the day! I am looking forward to Friday and Saturday and the forecasted highs in the mid 50's!


  1. Hi Jennifer,
    Love the title of your blog so witty! You are right in saying gardening is an affliction for some anyway! I just have a small hanky patch front and back and really am a summer gardener when i like colour and lots of it! I tend to let things be during the winter! Pop over to my blog www.talesfromagarden.blogspot.com when you get a chance and sign in maybe!
