I photographed this dragonfly hanging out with the cucumbers at my community garden plot exactly one year ago and wouldn’t you know it I saw one at the garden again just the other day. This must be their season because I have not seen one for the entire year between.
The rings come with fake moss embedded inside but you can put real moss in there if you prefer. The price has gone up a few bucks since I got mine but they’re still very affordable and well made. I don’t like to wear rings that can’t stand up to a bit of wear and tear and mine has survived through some recent rough and tumble. Although, somewhat ironically, I take it off in the garden. If rings aren’t your thing the designer also makes moss embedded pendants.
I’ve considered attaching some HO Scale miniatures to create a little diorama on my finger but I’m guessing that might make the ring almost unwearable through any activity beyond sitting very still with my hand set on a cushion. That would get old very quickly.
And because I’m charmed by beautiful packaging check out the embossed thank you card that came with the ring.
Aren’t these pretty? They’re an adorable, dwarf variety that I fell in love with this year. I bought the plants back in the spring and they have bloomed endlessly for months. They remind me of the David Bowie song, “The Prettiest Star.” I think of it whenever I deadhead them.
I have some growing in a 70′s era flour cannister on the roof and some more in ground over at the community garden. Both sets are doing equally well. Go little zinnias!
