Mona Lisa, Mona Lisa, Mona Lisa . . .
I was walking through the pasture on a windy day when I saw Mona Lisa in my garden! Yup, there she was. I ran to the house for my camera and took this shot.
All the while, I was singing "Mona Lisa," the Nat King Cole version, and hoped that the wind wouldn't die down before I could capture this pic.
We are putting tarps over the new garden area to kill the grass, since I will be expanding the garden next spring. A friend of mine has a shop near a company that puts up billboard signs, and they had an abundance of tarps. The price was right - FREE - and I took as many as I could. We put down the biodynamic preps, some sea salt with humate, and then nailed down the tarps with tent stakes. The wind caught one and laid it over my tall and bushy asparagus plants. This tarp happens to be for some innocuous message ad about smiling. Well, this event certainly made me smile.
