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 photo name


  1. I never heard that little tune, but it's cute and suits the time of the year!

  2. 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 gotta pea too!

  3. You always make me smile. Happy Friday!

  4. Never heard that one lol
    But isn't that strange - 1 little pea???

  5. Diana, You crack me up :) I love the copper potted geranium. We have found tomato plants that the birds have planted.:) They plant mulberry trees everywhere. I hope you have a fun day. xoxo,Susie

  6. Beautiful plants and flowers and even better was starting my day with a smile and a chuckle..


  7. 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.

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

  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!

  11. 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 :)


  12. oh that is a good one Di girl. Pea but Peee.

    Happy Day it is Friday.

  13. Thanks for the morning smile!! So cute! Your flowers are lovely, really like the hostas! Mine are struggling this year.

  14. The tune is new to me and I love it!

  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.

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

  17. Lovely plants, Diana! Never heard that little song before, but it sure is a cute one! xo Nellie

  18. 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.

  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.

  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.
