Name That Plant!

I am a beautiful plant with a horrible name.  I’m a “Streptocarpus.”  If I had a dollar for every time that someone asked, “Isn’t that a dangerous bacteria?”, I’d be a billionaire.  No, that’s Streptococcus.  I’m seriously thinking of having my name legally changed to “Stradivarius.”  Just once it would be nice to hear someone ask, “Isn’t that a famous violin?”  It would be music to my ears.

WOW!  That wasn’t a rainstorm, it was a deluge.  I won’t have to apply moisturizers for the rest of my life!  Are you OK?  Here I am going on about hydration, and you could be unconscious for all I know.  Are you OK?  If you can’t talk, send me a message through our stem cells.

You Risk Old Testament Justice

Blue and White Violet

Just HOW did the term “shrinking” EVER get associated with the term “violet”?  It implies that we’re shy, don’t want attention, and would run from danger.  I, for one, am NOT that kind of violet.  I’m an in-your-face, attention-grabbing, high-risk-taking violet.  I eat bugs for breakfast.  Use the term around ME and you risk an eye for a “shy” and a tooth for the truth!

We are the luckiest flowers on the entire planet this Christmas morning, because we were chosen to brighten the home of the Founding Father of this blog.  We are especially special because we were also chosen to wish everyone and every thing a beautiful Christmas and a fresh, vibrant, perfumed, multi-colored New Year.  If the Founding Father remembers to add water, we just might see 2013.

Celeste is spreading rumors behind my back, and her hangers-
on are already broadcasting them.  I’m going to send a
message through the root system that she is taking a night
class in Remedial Photosynthesis.
