Green Man

When I mentioned him yesterday, I was intending to fashion him out of the chair parts. After posting, I walked out of my office into the living room, where the green batts jumped me and smacked me on the head. What was I thinking? Of course a green man on this place should be felted.

I experimented, and came up with him. He looks like a gargoyle. A bit grim, with a look of discontent about the mouth. If I ignore the mouth and the bushy old man eyebrows, he sort of reminds me of Little Sprout, the Jolly Green Giant's nephew.

I put him on the side facing the garden. I hope he brings lush growth there.

It rained all night, so I just went out and looked. Nope, still the same. Woohoo!

I like the green man.

Were you really up at 4:30 AM posting this? Ah, the life of an ALZ caregiver...

I agree - He does look a bit like the "Jolly Green" family! Glad that he made it through the rain as well! :)

Yep, Robyn, so now my internal clock is all confused. I got her to go back to bed around 5:30, and I did too. When I got up later, it felt like a whole day had passed, so it feels like tomorrow.
