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
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
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.

Your hosta looks very healthy, and that does look like a Phlox. I was bemoaning losing mine in my post this morning, so sseing yours thriving just rubs salt into the wound, lol

I don't gotta pea, this year. Have some green bean vines that haven't produced diddly squat, though.
Don't work to hard, see you tonight.

Pretty plants Diana!
Oh I wish I had planted some phlox,mine had to be pulled because of a fungus,

Cranberry Morning said...

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.

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!

Stephanie said...

Oh Diana, there is never a dull moment with you - you are precious! I can always count on you to put a smile on my face :)

The tune is new to me and I love it!

Little Miss Maggie said...

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.

Preppy Empty Nester said...

You are a riot!!! Hope you have a great weekend!

Nellie said...

I have never heard that one, but I do remember, "Diarrhea, uh-uh, diarrhea!!" My kids sing it now. Of course, I taught it to them.

Ceil said...

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!

too cute! I have never heard that song. I usually plant sweet peas and didn't even get them in this year. Next year I hope I can sing, "I gotta pea"! Love those blue Columbines. I want to look for one that color.

Pat M said...

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.
