Last night I was laying in bed writing a blogpost in my head.
I suspect this is not unusual behavior for those that write a blog with some regularity. It’s like the people that walk around composing facebook statuses in their head.
I remember that I was going to show you some pictures that were completely unrelated from each other, and that I had smooth transitions (often a rough spot in my writing) and I had a neatly crafted point.
Today, I do not recall.
But I will share some pictures with you that are related.
Remember these guys? From this post?
|My mom had a suggestion for what they might be.
I remember it had “skunk” in the name.
For the record, they do not smell.
I looked for them again about a week ago. And this is what they look like now.
Their leafyness reminds me of Romaine lettuce. Swamp lettuce, perhaps? Swamp salad, anyone?
We’ve gotten a lot of rain in the last week, so I’m curious to see what they’ll look like on a sunny day after all this rain. When we get a sunny day, I’ll go look for them again and keep you posted. Do you think they’ll develop flowers? Or will they serve themselves up in a salad bowl? How do they feel about blue cheese dressing? I don’t like blue cheese dressing. Gross. Jared does. Gross.
Anyway, are these really flowers? Or are they just plants? And why, before they develop leaves, do they have such a tough looking bud/casing? And why was it dark burgundy? Will they grow to be swamp spreaders and take over everything in sight?
Who knows? (This is not a rhetorical question, if you know the answer, or know someone that does, find out. Then tell me). I am curious.
Also, how do you feel about blue cheese dressing?
Oh man, this is how my brain is operating today, and I’m only on my first cup of coffee.
Please send help.
