This morning, I was bemoaning the fact that my cantaloupe plants had lots of vines and flowers, but no fruit. This afternoon, I was thrilled to see that the melon fairy had stopped by to leave me a present.
I swear this cantaloupe wasn't here yesterday! It seems to have appeared while I was at a garden bloggers' get together. Seems like hanging out with Austin garden bloggers brings good luck! Now I just have to keep the possums from nabbing it.
What magical surprises have you found in your garden?
