Trying to get away from me...

Another post on why I am not in charge.

I plant things on MY side of the fence.

But they slowly sneak away to the OTHER side of the fence, where neighbors and deer and weeds can enjoy them, instead of me!
So, all these photos are from the opposite side of the fence from where they are planted.

I could get a complex. Are they trying to get away from me?



This little butterfly didn't try to get away from me...well, she did, but not before I got her picture!

I guess they are heading for the sunny side of that fens. Lovely butterfly / gittan

Obviously you aren't as bright as the sun. It is annoying to the gardener when the plants prefer the sunny side of a fence rather than the side we have to loook at.

Diana said...

Gittan - I'm sure they are in a few instances, but some of them are not, so it's confusing all around!

Lisa -- I'm not sure anyone on my blog has told me that I'm just not that bright!!! That made me LOL. And mostly, that's true!

Janet said...

They are just being friendly or rather, neighborly!

Gail said...

You are so wise...we really don't have control over so many things! gail

Diana said...

Janet -- I like that thought -- that they are just being neighborly, as well they should be, right? Nice sentiment.

Gail -- Oh, I am not so wise, I am really just pouting!

I'd be very, very happy to have 'Heavenly Blue' coming over a fence into MY garden, Diana! That's a beautiful, beautiful thing.

Were you the one that said your strawberries have been producing all summer today in the MG seminar?

Diana said...

Katina -- Yes, I was! And it's a total mystery to me. Wish you'd come up to say hi! Wasn't it great? Patty and I used to be neighbors.

Don't feel bad! It's in their climbing nature; it's NOT you!!

Diana said...

Jodi - it is blue-tiful isn't it? It's so rare in the garden, I love trying to find blues to sprinkle around my beds.

Rambleonrose -- Yes, it's their disobedient nature!

That is such a pretty shot of the butterfly on the cosmos.

Diana said...

Thanks, Lancashire Rose. Saw a lovely shot of your garden today in Patty Leander's Fall Veggie garden seminar and she bragged on your rhubarb growing abilities.

You are so funny! You should ask your neighbor if you can plant things on THAT side of the fence. LOL.

Is your butterfly a Queen? It's beautiful! We're supposed to have those, too, but I've never seen one. Monarchs and Viceroys, but no Queens. Yet. I keep my eyes open. :-)
