All The Way From Canada...

Please meet Mr. Smiley all the way from Ontario Canada from Joy of Garden Joy 4 Me. Joy was kind enough to trade garden buddies!
I sent Joy, Mista G and she sent me, Mr. Smiley! Isn't he just a sweetie? He was not quite sure of living in Northern California where it gets so hot in the Summer, but I told him on those really hot days he can come inside and sit on my desk! He agreed and decided that he wanted to pose for a few pictures of his new home.

Here he is in all his glory!

In this picture he took on a little attitude...(-:

He is soaking up a few rays and enjoying the evening!

Mr. Smiley will sit next to his fellow garden smiley faces and watch the garden grow! What a great job!(-:

Thank You so much Joy! Rest assured Mr. Smiley will have a great home and will live happily ever after!!!!(-:

Hi Sunita,
Thanks for stopping by!!!! I think Mr. Smiley is pretty happy! He is loving all the attention!

Hi Joy,
I bet Mista G is happy about that! He was probably thinking...snow!!! Yikessssss!!!! He can handle the heat but the cold would probably really put him in a mood!(-:
No one wants a gargoyle in a "mood" lol

Hi Meadowview Thymes,
We had a great time with this adventure!!!(-:

I just looked at the shoe garden. that is a lot of shoes. I used to throw mine in garden in a pile to deter animals. huhh did not work. I even tried to divide grass from bed in a small area with flipflops and others of kids shoes. I planted in a few. and one other idea that's a secret. but I never grouped them so much together. What an impact the idea makes!
People must flock to your place for garden tours.
