Rain, rot and giggles

I went out this morning looking for signs of life in my little gardens but all I found was lots of rotting, mildew covered plants and the rain keeps falling..

This poor little wagon I drug it back and forth to shelter all summer but the rains finally won .
I have now moved it to my shed in hopes of saving something.

The Mandavillas are about the only things that seems to be enjoying all the rain ..
see that gray sky that is the way it has looked for way to many days in Savannah this summer...

and for the giggles how about Mr. Turtle I think he is so cute ! He has a metal tail but I guess I missed it.. He is in one of the gardens at the Botanical gardens here in town. He is made out of an old wash tub, sheet metal and that is some type of a bolt for his eyes . Time I saw him I thought about Miss Cindee over at Cindee's Garden She does some of the neatest garden art I have ever seen ... Go look for yourselves .. I promise her blog will make you smile and giggle or at least it made me smile and giggle on this gray morning ..

Happy Friday ya'll, hugs Cherry


  1. I am wishing we had some of your rain! Its so dry here! We are sick of the hot dry summer and you are sick of the rain(-:
    Thanks for the sharing my blog(-: Glad to make you smile(-: Laughing is good too!!!!

  2. It's always hard to beat the rain with planters with not enough drainage. I love the manderville plant and Mr Turtle.

  3. A wet and dark here too, Cherry. I'm glad for the break..good day to relax and catch up on blogs...lol. Ooh, hope your succulents dry out ok.

  4. Yeah Cherry I had to bring all of my cactuses and succulents inside already due to so much rain. Have a great weekend!

  5. Oh, my gosh. Those plants look about to float right out of the little wagon. Hooray for the pretty mandavilla and I like it in white. Mr. Turtle made me smile. Thanks.

  6. I'm sorry to hear about the rain, Cherry. Hope Mr Turtle can cheer you up. He's very cute and he is smiling. Have a lovely weekend, Cherry. Hugs from me to you.

  7. That turtle sure put a smile on my face!

  8. I have a radio flyer wagon planter too. Looks like you need some sunshine around your place.

  9. Can't the rain go from state to state evenly? Is it so difficult? I bet it will be here in the NW all the time starting from October!
    Love the turtle! Simple and great!

  10. I hope it stops soon!!! that mandeville looks wonderful!

  12. Cherry, I'm sorry for too much of a "good" thing as far as the rain. :(

    Oh my gosh, Mr. Turtle is just too darn CUTE! *grin*

    Love that touch of fun in the garden. I will love coming to visit your blog. xo

  13. I think you are getting some of our rain! We've gone without for quite a long time--almost all of August and now into September. Send some our way! I can't believe how full your wagon was with water! I bet if you had a rain barrel, it would be overflowing!

hugs, Cherry
