Congrats on the picture use! A very informative post it was.

Is that your golden? It's so cute!

Love chive flowers.

(I said that in a whisper so as not to disturb the silence.)

I love that tree, whatever it is. That dremel-looking tool looks like something that might be used in the "gulagg" - is it used to crack the seeds so they'll sprout?

Ha, I've used my dremel for the seed knicking thing too. Usually ended up with most seeds flying all over the place:)

Ah, flip-flops time is here! I've already got tan lines from them on my feet. The rhodie standard is magnificent. Yours? You've earned some recognition, getting your pics selected. I'm happy for you!

A little pickin' and a little back porch sittin'. Looks like a perfect weekend.

I would name the first picture "Pickin" and the second picture "Grinning" :-)

Ms. Tina: Thanks, and no, he's not mine. Murphy is a neighbor's dog.

Ms. Mary Sharpe: Thanks for the whisper. ;~)
Stop by again.

Ms. Teri: The "tree" is actually a manicured rhododendron. And yes, I use the Dremel to scarify hard cased seeds, and to torture prisoners in the gulagg. ;~O

FD: Sorry about your "flying seeds." Want me to send you a pair of pliers like what I have pictured? ;~P

W2W: I thought that was a very unique pruning method, most rhodies here are huge and magnificently flowered, I wish they lasted all summer. (Show me those tanned feet. ;~))

Ms. Skeeter: Great suggestions for captions. Which actually gives me an idea for my "Say Nothin' Saturday" postings. ;~)

Do I sense a contest coming on? "Supply the best caption and win some scarified seed" would be excellent, TC. I'm not very good at torturing those things. Only about half the Nasturtiums I sowed came up. I guess a nail file just doesn't cut the mustard.
