Updating early as I am ill and would like to go to bed! My family's situation is gradually improving. Many thanks to those who have wished us well.

There's a small departure in this one, as I have incorporated a non-miniature item in the photographs. I've done this only once before, and I try not to make a habit of it. My new house has a flower garden. I grew up helping my mother tend our vegetable garden, but flowers are new to me. I've done a lot of work in it, as the previous owners did not take care of it at all. So far, I have had good results, but I was saddened when something ate my roses. I know everything has to eat, but why my flowers?

And look! Minty uses LJ. ~_^

Of course Minty uses LJ! ^_^
Glad things are stabilizing! Hope everything continues on the upswing!

Feel better soon ((Hugs)) I'm glad things with the family are on an upswing.

Your poor roses...have you made sure Minty hasn't developed a taste for roses?

Good to see that I have something in common with Kimono. ((hugs))

The unexciting part, or the gardening part? ;)

Oh definately the unexciting part.

Sorry to hear about your roses! Maybe this article can help? Or ask at your local garden center, just dont let them sell you something expensive. Asking at a nursery might get you better answers too. Oh, or, if you're lucky like me to live near a nice conservatory, Im sure they'd have resources or maybe even classes that could help!

Thanks for the link! We don't have Japanese beetles here. My roses were attacked by what looked like baby katydids. Some spiders moved in and ate most of them, so now I just have caterpillars to contend with.

Get well soon.

I thought the close up of the rose was a nice touch.

Aha..so does Minty have an online diary, while Kimono's is a real book?

And you know I've just now plunged into the world of plants, so I can't think of a thing to help your roses except spray, spray spray.

Yep! Although Kimono also blogs a little.

I think Minty ate the roses. :)

Too cute! I Kimono's hat is awasome. And I'd liked the real rose on there.

And, where did you found it Kimono on Waterfire's pose? I loooover her!

That Kimono was custom-made. I've made variants of Kimono and Minty so they have more movement. You can see some of them here:

Try spraying them with soapy water, that's supposed to help I hear.
kimonos_house
Apr. 23rd, 2008 05:32 pm (UTC)
I've heard that, too! What kind of soap do I use? And, would it hurt my ferns? My rosebush is surrounded by ferns, and I was concerned about them.

LOL! Minty was hoping for juicy details and got chewed flowers instead.

...I blame Spackles. It was Spackles going NOM NOM NOM on the roses!

Barely a mention of Brightly! Honestly, it's like she knew someone might go snooping... *hands on hips*

If you have a fire place, you can put the ash from it around your flowers. They're alkaline and critters hate it; just don't use it around anythign you intend to eat.

Kimono's diary is sparkly. And Minty's LJ's existence is so delightfully in character and apt for the comic. I love the black-hole concept of journaling about journaling.

And Minty's journaling about journaling gets put into this journal, and then someone links to it on another journal, and then the world collapses into itself. XD

I LOLed. :D Not what I was expecting in panel four. I thought you were going to reveal that Minty or Spackles had been doing the nibbling. :D

As they say on Cute Overload, it would have been the most delicate of cronches.

I would love to see Minty's LJ. It would be so amazingly random, I bet. XD Hope you get well soon, and that you figure out the rose problem.

I thought Minty's blog was on KT's domain. ^_- Woot for LJ, though--it's the center of my online existence.

Rose petals a slightly sweet and water, and have a very fun texture on the tongue . :) That's why. ;)
