We Need These

Topiaries can be in any shape.
rainbowpainters.jpg
These rainbow painters are topiaries, too.

If we had enough space and money, we’d have all of these ideas in our garden – well, almost all. Some things we want, our Garden Gals won’t agree to include, some just won’t work in our garden, and some cannot be done because they are impractical for our parents’ disabilities. These are all photos of what we would like, and, if you happen to want to give us any of them, we’d be happy to accept them (if our wives say we can. Kehehehehe)

Impossible Dreams

castledoor.jpg
Wondering why we included such a boring garden?

It belongs to this.
castle.jpg
Our summer home.

backyard.jpg
Our dream back yard, complete with fireplace.

smallpond.jpg
Can this little pond fit in a 16' X 16' backyard?

waterfallpond.jpg
We want this little waterfall and brook, too.

It really goes much slower then it looks here.
waterwheel.jpg
We need this waterwheel on our brook.

waterfallpond.jpg
Now can you see how the waterfall and pond can fit into our yard?

waterfallpond1.jpg
Another view to see the mound to set more plants.

Why is he sleeping in the yard?
sleepingbeauty.jpg
We want the landscape, not the crowd.

We want this too,...
centerpeice.jpg
but it would be hard to place it near the pond and creek.

Our garden is purples and blues,...
redsandpinks.jpg
but give us some these, and we'll go reds and pinks.

Add this table onto our pond and were set!
weddingreception.jpg
That floor isn't shiny, it's on a low level pond!

Can you see the pond better?
weddingreception1.jpg
That's a flower arrangement on the table, not a tree.

Give us this, and well do whites and silvers!
entertaining.jpg
This is the tea party table that our daughters picked out for us.

We'd like wisteria, too,...
wisteria.jpg
but it needs something beary strong to lean on.

The wisteria is the purple flowering tree under the candle lit tree. How do they light candles in a tree without burning it up? Our Garden Gals don’t care – they just want this in the corner of our garden.

Can we have this in another corner?
golfing.jpg
The sand trap's for our kids and the putting green is for us

We need this Christmas tree made of flowers.
flowerchirstmastree.jpg
We like the green Bells of Ireland flowers. We're trying to grow them from seeds again this year.

Our daughters want the gown...
prettygown.jpg
and the pretty plant beach balls on the lawn.

You'd think the Garden Gals would want this,..
babydino.jpg
but they don't like dinosaurs, even baby ones like this one.

We'd like these too,...
bigdinos.jpg
but we just can't talk them into garden guards this big.

Would you steal from a garden with these in it?
moredinos.jpg
This is what were talking about!!!

Bonsai

Bonsai are also known as Teddy Bear trees (to Teddy Bears), a’cuz they are just the perfect size for us. There are 15 styles of bonsais, and we have pictures of many. If you would like to learn more, click here, and it will send you to a site that describes each style. Good luck guessing which each style is a’posed to be.

We'll take that container.
bonsaigarden.jpg
If we had the room, we'd have these bonsai, too.

We like the baby bonsai...
biglittlebonsai.jpg
right below the big, powerful bonsai.

It takes decades to make bonsai look like this!
tiltedbonsai.jpg
We're learning how to create our own bonsai - reading books and buying supplies.

A six foot tree is still a bonsai -
bigbonsai.jpg
just a beary big bonsai!

Just a closer look.
bigbonsai1.jpg
Does it look like a broom to you?

The trunk is two colors,...
barebarkbonsai.jpg
a'cuz part of it has no bark, on purpose.

bonsaidisplay.jpg
This probably covers all the other styles of bonsai.

Possible Dreams

garedenpatio.jpg
A nice place to sit and enjoy.

Some of our neighbors have yards this big.
frontyard.jpg
It has so many flowers, some fell in front of the gate?!

If we can't have the sheep and spinning wheel,...
spinningwheel.jpg
Can we have the wooden container back there and the straw for mulch?

And we need fairies...
fairylights.jpg
And mushroom lights like this.

The dog is topiary, like our Teddy will be.
doghouse.jpg
Can we have the doghouse? The flowers are the right level for Mommy, and it's a good fort.

We love this Teddy Bearsized church!
trough.jpg
Mommy wants the trough! We are accepting spare troughs you might have.

Here's a close up.
closeuptrough.jpg
That water pump would be a nice addition to the garden.

Our church has more troughs.
rosetroughs.jpg
This one is so big; it has rose bushes in it.

No window box needed!
recesswindow.jpg
Wouldn't this be a nice window for our church?

jarrock.jpg
We just like this scene, and want the jar for a terrarium.

The perfect gift for Daddy and Mommy!
beertable.jpg
The table and flowers for Mommy -- the 6-pack of stout form Daddy.

This sustainable garden does two things:
sustainableliving.jpg
It uses junk parts to make things and grows only edible produce.

Edible flowers cascading down...
nasturtium.jpg
along side vining vegetables. We think squash.

Carrots below, basil above,...
sustainableliving1.jpg
colorful chard in the background.

This garden has less space then ours, but using recycled parts and wood, plus using the same areas above and below ground, a family can have all the produce it needs all summer. How? Read The Edible Container GardenGrowing Fresh Food in Small Gardens by Michael Guerra. We’re trying our paw at it already, planting spinach above the garlic we planted last autumn. Some times we can get what we need. Kehehehehehe

We're beary thirsty, hard-working Teddy Bears! Would you help quench our thirst by donating a buck to our coffee fund? We'd be furever grateful, or... at least grateful until our coffeecoffeecoffeecoffee runs out again?! Kehehehehehe (Donations are secure and go through PayPal, a trusted website belonging to Ebay.) Thank you!

Would you like your own guestbook?  Blog?  Hit Counter?  We found a cool place that gives you all these add-ons and more (even your own website backgrounds) AND it's free!  Even better (for us anyway), if you click on this link, join and use it, they give us a whole DOLLAR just for sending you (and then you can do the same thing from your den too!)  How cool is this?   Oh, go on!  Please, click the link right below, and check it out!
