From another day:

All little league games have been rained out and rescheduled so far this spring!

Sizing up the competition at little league picture day! All the rain is great for the garden, not so great for baseball. Lots of games to come for the Spy!

And back in the garden:

Hope the peas climb up this trellis before it gets too hot for them! (after the peas, planting beans)

Moss ball close up

You can see some of the black zip ties sticking out and the areas not yet grown in with moss. But this sphere has perched atop the fence post for a week, persisting through heavy rains, some strong wind and hasn’t really dropped so much as a clod of dirt! So it is a pretty sturdy growing/living garden accessory. The moss should continue to grow and all the chicken wire will eventually be invisible. I’d like to try making some other shapes (kind of like topiaries).

I asked the Spy, “Now that I’ve made a ball I really could make most any shape. What do you think? Maybe I should make, say, a life-size baby giraffe garden sculpture in this same manner? Or what other shape or animal would you want?”
The Spy replied “You garden too much.”

Hahahahha
