Introducing Sideshow Bob

Hi all,

Recently I was reading an interesting blog, (unfortunately I can't remember which blogger to thank), showing pictures of beautiful indoor plants. This reminded me that purchasing an indoor plant was on my to-do-list so whoever you are, thank you.

Whitesnake and I decided on a Maidenhair Fern as I'd managed to raise one to a decent age previously, (usually my houseplants die a miserable death). Anyway, we took him home and re potted him ( my houseplants are always male) and sat him in the corner.

Later in the evening, my hubby began chuckling to himself and asked if the plant reminded me of anyone.... now his name is Bob. He's named after Sideshow Bob from The Simpsons. Can you see the resemblance or have we finally lost the plot?

Have a great week

Love KB, Whitesnake and Bob

That is sooo funny, and yes, it does. I do not have luck with houseplants but am forever telling myself I'll try again.

I am not good with indoor plants but they do better staying outdoor in semi shade.

Hello KB, the Fern is beautiful and the cartoon is funny:) Thank you for your comment, and I was thinking it would be fun to join All Seasons. Because almost any image works, since it is about the experience of your season (you are now going into Fall, I know because there are 2 from Australia and one from New Zealand)
Will try to explain it below, and if you are not sure, don't hesitate, I'll try to explain it another way. The link is open from Sunday thru Friday noon California time, so still enough time:):)

First read it all through because it's probably easier to a) get your perma link of your post (explained below)
b) click on the CLICK HERE on the All Seasons post.

1) When you have CLICKed HERE at the bottom of the All Seasons post, A NEW PAGE of the Linky list opens up to fill in.
Only need to explain the first line with the perma link.
2) Fill in your perma link, (for blogspot that is probably below the title and has your url, date, and title of post, when your post is in edit mode)
COPY AND POST the perma link of your post and on first line of linky list -
3( fill in the rest of your info, then click WEB or File - the photos of your post will show up. Choose and wait to crop the image, click again and Voila you are done:) Hope to see you there:)

Sorry, a typo: it needs to say COPY and PASTE

Colleen Looseleaf said...

Ha Ha! Imagine if it was a woman named Fern!

Phil Slade said...

We have troubles keeping houseplants too. Fingers crossed for our orchid that's doing well for now.

Tom said...

...and a great week to you, keep smiling.
