Quietly, Quietly... See for Yourself!

I've not yet set out a plate for Cookies.
('Anonymous' predicts it might be Keebler elves
behind that door!)

As I rounded the corner with my Camera,
(Always on the lookout for whatever might be
living behind that door...)

I happened upon a wee fellow with a Cart,
(It appears as though there's a fellow gardener
residing behind that door!)

At the very most, I must admit, he's Cute...
(I wonder if MMD would join in this asssessment
of the resident behind this door?)

And what are YOUR feelings of this small Cousin
of a fellow we might love to hate? FYI, I'll be watching
this little squirt that lives behind the door!

I really think he's sort of cute, and too small to do too much damage -
don't you think?
Plus, if it's carrots he's carting... he won't be bothering mine!

You might consider this
a 'shady' subject! ;-)

I think he's very cute! He doesn't look like he'll be bothering your plants, he must have his own garden hidden somewhere. I wonder if he has a family?

Shady Gardener said...

Hi Catherine, They'd be a tiny little bunch, wouldn't they? ;-)

Gail said...

Shady, Hi! You are having too much fun teasing MMD!...she will love that! Cute bunny and really cute door! I probably shouldn't be commenting it is way past my bedtime and I may not be making sense! Gail

Lisa at Greenbow said...

Tee hee... a cute little fellow. It will be fun to hear about his antics.

Monica the Garden Faerie said...

Love the fairy door! (Remember my post on fairy doors in Ann Arbor???) I think fairy doors on trees make more sense than in shops, though, hooray!

Rosemary said...

Love the whimsy. Got me thinking, will have to look carefully, might be missing the fairy in my garden.

Salina Inzaghi said...

that's so cute...although i'm more interested in looking behind those doors ;)

Shady Gardener said...

Hi Gail, It was past my bedtime when I did this entire post. It was a bit silly! ;-)

Hi Lisa! :-)

Monica, I was hoping you'd enjoy this. I'd followed your previous link to see the doors, and now I've finally been able to visit your post!

Rosemary, Either you have a fairy you haven't discovered... or perhaps you're thinking your local fairy may have found a home here? ;-)

Salina, I'm curious, too! ha. Who knows what might happen?

Anonymous said...

SG~~ I think the two of you can coexist just fine. There's enough garden for everyone and he looks like he might make a good friend.

When my kids were small I always wanted to create a fairy garden but it never materialized. I'm thinking now that my two garden cats were too big of a threat. :)

Shady Gardener said...

Hi Grace, Thanks for being patient with me. I just couldn't resist. :-)

Kathleen said...

aahhh, he's adorable. You make me want to go out and spruce up my fairy land a bit. I haven't done anything else since first posting. Keep that camera handy because you just never know!!

Shady Gardener said...

Hi Kathleen! ;-) You may want to do a little prep work out there! ha.

Sorry, not cute enough. It may be tiny, but I still wouldn't trust that rabbit. I've seen only 1 rabbit statue that I'd consider putting in my garden, and I've posted a photo of it.
That said, the door & Toadstool are cute.

Shady Gardener said...

MMD! I tend to agree... who would want a whole LOT of those little fellows underfoot? ;-)
