Twisting vision.

The point

A death spiral intercepted?

Arms of a savior or a lover’s quarrel. “I’ll hug you to death”. “Leaf me alone!”

Maybe something less decay oriented.

A green pair practicing tango for Dancing with Under the Stars

A naturalist’s version of a Swan Lake

Fresh take on the Elizabethan drama of “Lettuce Elope, Juliet”

What does this stem from?

Selfless leaf to leaf recitation.

An analogy for post hurricane Harvey week

“Lean on me when you’re not strong.”

“You ain’t heavy, you’re my brother.”

Well rooted.

    What a great capture. That’s clearly from your yard. Like you, your leaves like to get to the point. 🙂

      Odd, right? That plant is always trying to grab attention with some antic. Thanks for twirling by to comment. (My neighbor’s headed to Victoria to help friends there so we’ll get an eyes on account from there soon)

    I love your mind leaps…

    Thinking there’s another song “…don’t leaf me lonely….” — maybe a 50’s girl group? will have to keep humming/trying to remember. Glad to see the recovery underway. Did that kamikaze-wannabe palm frond spear anything (yet)?


    • philosophermouseofthehedge / Sep 6 2017 10:56 am

      Oh, yes, I remember that…as well as “Please re-leaf me or let me go….”
      Gotta love green. HAHA Thanks for planting a comment

    I’ve got you wrapped around my pointy finger…

    Great dialogue …. and a subtle reminder of Harvey when subtleties aren’t needed.

        Trying to get back in the swing! Then again, my issues are minor compared to those in your area. Hope all is well.

          It’s all relative. Human issues can be as shattering as earthquakes to those in the middle of it.
          Here, we were very lucky and are high ground. A few blocks either way and it’s very bad. Florida, the Carolinas – nobody needs dealing with this destruction. They are starting schools where they can so maybe the kids can feel a bit more normal – and the parents have time to do what needs to be done. (Way behind on reading, but working to catch up – it is difficult to get back into the swing of things!)

    That’s a great the analogy for post hurricane Harvey week. I’ve read it before but always rings true
