It’s another installment of Blogging Destinations, a place where culture brats, wordsmiths and friendly folk with all sorts of talents gather.
The trees and foliage throughout Big Bend National Park shuddered inexplicably, when they heard the news about Julie coming to town for planting lessons. This was their territory, a place of beauty that would never succumb to the unending verbiage of some incessant rambling plant talker. It was bad enough that six months earlier, they’d had to deal with self-proclaimed Queen of the Plant Talkers, a woman positively bent on making plants bloom, when clearly there’s no rhyme, reason or season to it.
Blame it on Gladys. Everyone blames everything on Gladys anyway! She’s that stereotypical neighbor who never misses a beat. You know? The one who can’t sleep, because she’s too worried about what the neighbors might be doing when she’s not looking! Or worse yet, is trying to keep close tabs on them, so she can tell everyone else what they’re “really” up to!
Big Bend would never be the same if Julie were able to convince park authorities to let her experiment in their bountiful environment. Just when they thought it was smooth sailing, after missing the promised threats of April May Maple. She ran out of time and headed up the coast to taunt the folks in Vancouver, BC, a much more populated space with plenty of specimens to choose from. Sandra was certainly glad April May chose to torment the west coast and leave the east coast alone this year. She definitely had enough to deal with from talking plants in her neck of the woods!
Meanwhile, back in crochet land, M. J. is dealing with lots of crochet stitches, which appear to be multiplying like rabbits. She’s hurriedly spends time joining and linking them, but Ulmus disappeared in the garden again, and recognizing her yellow-bellied yarn skills has come to no avail. Needless to say, M. J. has already fallen behind in a few of her other writing tasks. It doesn’t help that she recently discovered a fabulous group of fellow bloggers over at the Writers’ Post. She jumped right in and is truly enjoying making friends with all the neat bloggers there. Hey, why don’t you check this group out for yourself? It’s a might bit better than risking the plight of becoming a plant talker, if you know what I mean!
