I have updated my Factoids page
Another view of the Fat-Bellied Vietnamese Pig that I fed while her owner was away.
Lucky for me she didn’t absorb my Lecture on “Opposable Thumbs” and so she was unable to take a photo of MY belly.
When my friend returned she took a vase of Gladioli and began trimming off the Near-Dead Blossoms. The trimmed Stalks went back into the vase, looking like new.
A Stubby Stalk got to live in its own vase or tumbler.
The dead-ish blossoms were Cannibalized and the portions were nested one inside the other to make three delightful “Glamelias”, I think they are called.
