Yesterday afternoon, I set about planting an azalea adjacent to the sunporch steps in Rockland, and unearthed a treasure.
Okay, it wasn’t treasure really, but I did find it amusing.
On Vinalhaven, we have found lots of treasures in landscaping the yard. Lots of granite that was quarried on Vinalhaven, including a large rectangle piece that was hollowed out, which now serves as a bird bath for the random dirty bird in need of a cleanse.
Deserter? Missing in Action? The story surely needs to be researched…
After getting the aforementioned azalea was planted and watered, the Tim-Mee USA green army man was cleaned up, and now we have an official protector of the azalea armed at the ready.
