One of my favorite things in my succulent garden through the years has been finding green plastic army guys that my son has wedged in-between the rocks and plants for me to find. I never have the heart to remove the plastic army guys, even now, years later when I find them weeding. They have a lot more wear and tear and are less strategically placed around the rocks, but that’s o.k. I love knowing that they were put there in fun. I found this photo this morning and laughed because my son won a whole bag of green army men at our Christmas gift exchange this week. I wonder if he will still use them in my garden in an elaborate battle scene… or is he is too grown up for that now? Time will tell, but this photo brought back lots of nice memories this morning as I wind down from a busy Christmas.
