Let's Talk About Flowers

Have my recent posts been negative or what? Well, let me take a break by showing some more pleasant views of Ye Olde Academy:


Roses are red...


Hydrangeas are blue...


I just hope these monster lilies
Don't eat you!

Have a good day, everyone!

  • You say that now, but wait until they put you in charge of the General Gardening Steering Committee.

  • Very few of us would remember the signicance of "Talking About Flowers."

    I agree with Snabulus, you should avoid showing too much interest in things where you might get your hands dirty. And let me remind you what a fiasco it was when you decided to work on your own garden.

  • I had nothing whatever to do with the planting of those flowers. I just enjoy looking at them.

  • I always thought lily plants are not as tall. Monster, alright. Nice. Are the roses red? They look orange to me. But then again, I'm 50% weird. lol

  • Lovely. Momo's gladiola blossomed yesterday, very pretty. To think I almost pulled it up while weeding...

    In addition to the flowers, I think that campus is very nicely landscaped.

  • Lrong, Happy, Eitan
    I've never seen them grow quite so tall before! Lilies get planted in the campus flowerbeds from time to time, but these are amazing!

    Oh, and Happy, you're right. Those roses were pink some days ago, but recently they've been shifting toward orange.

    The hydrangea doesn't look nearly as blue in the pic as it does in real life.

    I'm glad you didn't dig it up. I've already done that a few times...owing to the in-laws' penchant for "random gardening".

  • My mom always goes to her garden when she is feeling down, sad or unhappy... she said that looking at flowers helps her to feel better, as for me, I've my own way which makes me 'huge,' you know what I mean :P

    What a tall monster lilies... and it has a sign of the name there.. nice.... :)

    It was needed.

    Welcome, and well said!

    Just be careful that you don't get too "huge" or you may not be able to get back to normal again!

    That sign actually says, "Health and Fitness Committee - Planting Team".

  • gorgeous flowers... i especially like the hydrangneas. do you put anything in the soil to get them blue? i used to grow them, but had to add different elements to change the color, w/ most of them being pink. i think you have to add zinc to get the blue color... but i forget.

    anyway... great flowers.
