I Gotta Pea-I Gotta Pea

Want to know what ELSE I got?
(yeah- I know- poor English skills!;>)

I have mostly perennials this year .
I only got around to planting a few
annuals.
This one is in an old copper wash tub.
Yep- It needs deadheading.
Want to know what ELSE I have?

I have some gorgeous hosta plants.
I have some BLUEtiful Columbines.
I have some plants waiting to bloom.
Phlox, I think.
And....You know what ELSE I got?
I gotta PEA!
One lone little pea plant.
Where the heck did THAT come from?
So, when I rush into the house saying
I GOTTA PEA
everyone scrambles to clear a path
so I have a clear shot to the 
powder room.

If you don't know WHY-well, if
you live long enough you WILL know.

Remember the kid's song?
I got a carrot
I got a yam
I got a green bean fresh not from a can
Got a potato and as you can probably see
I also got a pea.

I got a pea, I got a pea
Why is everyone laughing at me?
So if you find a little pea
On the Floor after I leave
I think it probably belongs to me.

Yeah- Got it now?
Have a great Friday.
See you LATE today-
still working at Ruth's house.
We're finishing up the kitchen today.
WhooooHooooo!!!!

  9. Gotta pea? There's a fix for that, but I'm not sure I'll tell you what it is - it Depends. (Get it? Sorry, couldn't resist it) :-) I wish I'd planted more annuals too. Oh well, there's always next year, right? Have a great weekend.

  10. I wonder where the one pea came from, could a bird have eaten one somewhere else and um, pooped in your yard, (sorry) a little graphic but if you didn't plant it,,,,,,
    thats such a cute rhyme I haven't heard that one, have a fun day, I know you will!

  15. That's a new song to me too. Could it be a sweet pea? One lone little sweet pea? I think your garden looks great. I love the idea of the copper pot with the geraniums. Great idea.

  19. Hi Nana Diana! I am visiting from A Vintage Farm Wife.

    I love my hostas. I always say hostas and cockroaches will be left at the end of the world. You can't kill those things! And I know why you ran to the bathroom girl, I'm a Nana myself :)

    Celebrate that pea! Great to get to know you, and a happy 'joiner' of your blog.

    Happy Friday!

  42. Hi Diana! I've been away much too long and missed your wonderful humor! I love the I gotta pea song...never heard it before, or else my pea brain has misplaced the memory!
    I have a veggie garden this year and plenty of weeds to pester me! Keeps me busy, but I can only do a little at a time...still having health issues, but trying to ignore them doesn't work so well.
    Hugs,
