Eat your Hearts Out II

A few folks have suggested that the garden photos I posted were not actually my garden.  Some even suggest that I have betrayed a sort of sacred trust that is the Hippocratic Oath of bloggers.  Some have cried journalistic malfeasance.  Picky, picky, picky.  I’m going to put these doubts to rest with my next set of photos — our topiary garden.  If you look very closely at each little tope, you’ll see a little Richard (not Little Richard) carved into each and every one of them.  Seeing is believing. 

Okay, I just had a Crime and Punishment moment.  Guilt, you rascal.  These photos are not actually my garden, although I did take the photos, which should mitigate something.  They’re actually Longwood Gardens in the Brandywine Valley an area that straddles the Delaware/Pennsylvania border.  We were there for four days this Spring which means I should get seven or eight posts out of this.  Next Professor Plum in the Conservatory with the knife.

    And I was SO sure that my difficulty in seeing the Little Richards was a function of my failing eye sight…not! 🙂 The pictures are great though…and you’ll always be Big Richard in the eyes of your readers (even if you do have a thing about laying claim to gardens that aren’t your own)…

      I’m sorry that I misled you and caused you to doubt your own eyesight and tried to make you believe in things that weren’t true and lied about gardens and probably other stuff too. I’m a bad, bad boy.

        I’d put in time out, but last I looked none of these qualify as punishable offenses..

      You can get there. It’s practically in your backyard. And thank you for the compliment. Oh, you said pics not pecs.

    I am shattered and shocked, but I’ll get over it – in time.
    Okay, I’m over it.

      I would have been upset about your consternation, but by the time I read about it, it was gone. Whew!

    RIP OFF! You had me fooled! BTW, I’m originally from Delaware County…south west Philadelphia, to be precise…and I have visited Longwood Gardens many times. It’s a lovely place.

      I’m sorry. I have been taken to task for the deception, and I’ll never never do it again.
