Ohhhhh a new thread, good idea Candee!
Nice arrangement, love the grand scale of your work! Those lotus pods are gorgeous, lovely textures there. I usually see them sprayed gold at Christmas, but much prefer the natural look. Well done!
Thank you for something else to think about, I'm going to search for fakes!

Found them! Orange poppies.

The good thing about fakes is you can bend them and they dont snap!

Bet you can guess my preference on these beauties. Gotta be the last one with the feathery stuff. Although really do fancy that swan one as well. We went to spain once but didn't return with any flowers from our trip.

You haven't faked me at all, I know what you and your sis are up to! Kinda like when I was pretending to be my granddaughter Eva right after she was born. I signed her up on DG and introduced myself with a photo of her as a new member, it was a real hit for a while and joked a lot of folks at the time.

Thanks! `blush`!~ I was just messing around.

That big pumpkin plant I have ion the garden is slowly getting done. I cannot beleive how huge that one vine got and I could not have grown one that big if I tried! The genuine one was the first to come available.

Yano, this is a tough thread to do! I have been racking my brains for fake outs. Teri was good at it!

BTW, where is she???

She went to spend time with her family. I am sure she will return as soon as she is able. Meantime we will keep her in our thoughts and keep that cafe tidy and she doesn't need to return to a mess here! Right?
I'll get more into the fake outs when the weather changes. Only time I spend here now is a few minutes a day from work. When I get home there is just so much to do. I have been trying to cut things back and pot up the tender stuff and just the other day a hundred tulip bulbs arrived from an order I placed that I had forgotten and I don't even have a clue where to put them. I guess I had planned to put them in the zinnia area but they are still going strong so can't get the bulbs planted yet, plus been so dry the ground is hard as cement.
Then there is also the seed gathering.
Hey guess what I found the other day BB? Many years ago I purchased this bikini, yes I said bikini, and I got it from spiegel catalog as it look cute and a colorful pattern. Well the first time I put it on my daughter said, that looks hideous mom. When I asked why she said, "because it has Michael Jackson's face all over it!" I replied what!!! and then I went to look in the mirror and low and behold it was MJ's art deco face all over the suit, on each cheek in the back and in the front and on the bandeau top! Well off it came and I thought I had pitched it. When he passed I said to Tasha, too bad I got rid of that bikini.
Well the other day I was in an old drawer looking for old knee high hose to cover the heads of my sunnies to catch the seed and what do you know, there was that bikini!!!
So guess now it has got to go to ebay, I never even took out the hygenic liner as I didn't have it on long enough! Problem now is who can model it for the ebay photos lol!!!

ROTFLMBBO!

Yeller polkadotted it aint! well good luck on that. Im not much on MJ. The guy freaked me out! He was a wee tad toooo artsy fartsy if ya catch my drift!... Im one of those that likes the Rat Pack generation tunes! Big band era stuff... I dont think I would like MJ adorning my keester either! Or the rest of the story for that matter! LOL!

Well, to solve yer tulip dilema, if you have some nursery cans, stick about 4-5 bulbs in each and plant them in those. You can sink the cans in the dirt later when the zinnias are done and the critters will have a time trying to disturb them. Saves work later too when you need to lift them and divide. I do all my daffs that way. If you dont have any, perhaps your local GH has a cleanup pile in isle 13 behing the shed you can scarf some to re-cycle.

OH gads.. now that tune Itsy Bitsy is bouncing in my head.. Lordy its the voices I swear!! LOL!

What are nursery cans?
MJ wasn't my cup of tea either so you can imagine my shock when Tasha pointed that out to me. I honestly just thought it was an unusual pattern for a suit. Guess it is like looking at the clouds sometimes you see something and other times you just see cloud patterns ! She thought I had lost my mind lol!

Snap...SNAP...wakey wakey, theeeeere you go dear, you wont remember the silly bikini other than an item to go on ebay!

Somedays the magic around here gets a weee bit weird!

Yes dear, the black plastic nursery cans most perennials come in. Well, most of them come in black, some are green, grey and well, I guess the modern world is getting hip to all sorts of colors! Just like the 70'S! ...And they come in all sizes too!

So take your pic!
