Granny Whimsy

Today the kids and I went to visit my granny and dear old papa. Here's a couple peeks at her back yard, which has always captivated my imagination with it's whimsy, clutter, and my granny's amazing green thumb. I think my kids like it too. Sure it's got it's eyesores and she's got more whosits and whatsits galore than Ariel's Grotto, but amidst the random chotchkies, you really do wonder if some of them come to life when you aren't looking, or if fairies live there...

This (above) is a tree in between two other trees that create a canopy of green.
See? Whimsy. She has another chandelier that matches this, along with several different ones, and more angel figurines than I can count.
This is such a pretty tree. But it needed something. So these are tree earings. (Hmm...Maybe my I inherited my attraction to long earings from my granny...)
Meow. I love this cat. Everyone needs a green paisley cat.
Jamsey on the wind chimes. Just beyond him is a pond with some goldfish, and of course, some more goodies.
