Breaking News!

In an unexpected move that sent shock waves reeling through the gardening community on this quiet corner of Katy, the Head Gardener tendered her resignation today, leaving behind
her badge of office, her trademark shock of platinum hair, and an as yet undeciphered (and reputedly incomprehensible) letter of resignation.   Rumors of HG sightings are now running rampant: while some rumors have her stalking off to the west while singing an off-key version of Aloha Oe, and others have her lurching towards the east tunelessly humming fragments of New York, New York, all sightings include a bottle of Piper-Heidsieck champagne in one hand and a pair of Felco 13s (that appear to be freshly sharpened) in the other.  Gardeners in all directions are advised to be on the lookout.

Thanks for the heads up. If she starts heading north toward Indiana, I'll try to get her to go back. MCOK just won't be the same without her! Oh dear!

What could have driven her over the edge? She's managed drought, freeze, heat and mosquitoes. I hope this is just a bout of temporary insanity.

Spring fever? In any case I think I'll go lock the door.

Melissa said...

If I spot her here in NY will send her back.

An APB has been issued and reports of sightings are being investigated!

She picks April the First to run away? Hmmmmmm....
I think I saw her hitchhiking along I-10. She kept picking wildflowers instead of getting a ride.

Personally I will keep her after seeing what her influence has done to your corner of Katy. Hee Hee

There was a report of an HG sighting here in LBB. I believe she was visiting the Buddy Holly Museum.

Man, she really got around this time. Lloyd knows what she'll do next. Y'all will be relieved (more or less) to hear that she's back where she belongs.

I don't believe you. She could never leave her corner of Katy. However, if she does show up here, I'm going to put her to work with those Felcos. I've got roses to cut back. :)
