THE THURSDAY HAPPY DANCE GRUDGE

Posted by Pistol Pete

I’d have to say that of the over 350 posts I’ve done here,yesterday’s may well be the most gratifying.Great comments and,most importantly,the links and the videos folks added.The diversity of our people is what makes us different than left-wing sites.Everyone here brings a unique perspective to share and we are all better for it. 

THIS WAS TAKEN AT A LIBERAL INDOCTRINATION CENTER,BETTER KNOWN AS A PUBLIC SCHOOL

UP YOURS,LIBERALS!!!

Queen Anne’s Lace

Queen Anne, Queen Anne, has washed her lace

(She chose a summer’s day)

And hung it in a grassy place

To whiten, if it may.

Queen Anne, Queen Anne, has left it there,

And slept the dewy night;

Then waked, to find the sunshine fair,

And all the meadows white.

Queen Anne, Queen Anne, is dead and gone

(She died a summer’s day),

But left her lace to whiten in

Each weed-entangled way!

(Mary Leslie Newton )

Mama Buzz snapped and emailed this to me while she was out with the kids yesterday. The text said, “PINK Queen Anne’s Lace?”

I was curious and found the COOLEST web page about Queen Anne’s Lace (Daucus carota), aka, Wild Carrot, Bird’s Nest Weed.

It seems the young blooms are pink. I never noticed that. As they mature, they turn white, with a little purple one right in the middle!

The micro-photography at this site is splendid. I highly recommend a visit.
