Working on the Landscape #Minecraft

I took Dan Antion‘s advice and replaced the boring old daisies in my planters with bright red poppies. Very appropriate for the Christmas season, against my green house.

I’ve had it in my mind to do this thing for a while, and I did it. The path is gravel and goes skrik skrik skrik when I walk on it. The walls are oak tree leaves. There’s an acacia wood door at one end, which I used for a purpose which I’ll tell you about next week. In the center are a flower pot holding a poppy and an acacia wood bench.

Beyond the labyrinth is a garden where I plant all the roses I come across. They’re all alike, alas.

Oh, and guess who’s up a tree now?


I’m posting today at Fatal Foodies about a most delicious vegan casserole I made for Christmas Eve dinner.

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: How is your character’s yard landscaped?




I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    Thanks for the shout. I like the poppies. Of course, after seeing the gingerbread houses, I might like gumdrops instead. Nice place to park a horse 🙂

      All these critters are always hopping around. You never know when you’re gonna find a cow on the top rail of your fence, or a chickduck on your roof. Glad they don’t have deer. Oh, and the pigs will suddenly hop onto a block you’ve just placed and spin around like a top. For why? Because Minecraft, I guess.

    I can’t believe there’s another horse in your tree. For pity’s sake.

    Love the roses 🙂

      I haven’t SEEN any pigs flying, but I wouldn’t be a bit surprised if they did.
