Gardening: Scenes from Gardens Past - Garden Residents 2006

This is Jill. She lives in the garden. This portrait, and the one below with her car, were taken in 2006.

When we bought the house, the garden was dotted with toys belonging to the child who'd lived there before - and perhaps children from before that. As we found them, we repositioned them in safer places - the back of the potting bench, up high on the fence support, on a windowsill, or, in the case of Jill, in a nice big pot.

Jill moved out of the pot when it cracked in a winter freeze. She currently lives in the vegetable garden with Jack, another member of the Playmobil clan. Jack's apparently a little camera shy - I don't seem to have a picture of him at all.

Photos: Mine.


  1. I'm glad you found a friend waiting for you to move in :D Especially such a happy looking friend!

  2. Thanks. :) She does make me happy every time I go out in the garden and see her sitting neatly on the slope with Jack, watching the scenery. I assume that their picnic basket is around there somewhere - probably in the car.
