Caught in the Act

 Recall if you will, just the other day when I came home with some ill-gotten goods--a grocery bag full of pilfered plant cuttings, to be exact.

So, Tom sees my ill-gotten goods on the kitchen counter and says, "You just took these? Didn't anyone stop you?"

In other words, why was I not caught in the act and hauled off to pilfering jail? Why would anyone stop me? Not like they care. They are abandoned annuals who had served their purpose; to look nice during summer and autumn until frost came to kill them off.
Abandoned sad.

I just took a snip here and there. I mean to say, I didn't actually dig up entire plants, roots and all....although that would have been a good idea. But no! Just a few cuttings is all I took. You wouldn't even know anything was missing. What's wrong with that?

Hmm, maybe nothing wrong, you may be thinking, but what good is it? Why did I bother to snip those cuttings and bring them home? Ah! I was hoping you'd ask that!

I have plans for these cutting which involve my hanging baskets. If you will recall, my hanging baskets were a dismal failure this summer. Why? Cuz I planted seeds, seeds which didn't bother to germinate as I instructed them to do and what did germinate...well, let's just say it wasn't pretty.

I'll show you. I didn't get caught in the act of snatching these cuttings away, but I'll be darned if I fail at the hanging baskets again. More on that next time.


  1. Ahem. Your hanging baskets failed because you could not reach to water them. Don' forget that this is your reading audience you are trying to bamboozle here! :0)

    And why is that butternut squash abandoned? Why this is awful!

  2. I have a folding chair on the porch which I stand on to water my high up planters, so I can reach them just fine, thank you very much!

    1. Oh, and the butternut is not abandoned. I was waiting for it to ripen a bit more.


Whacha think?
