Yellow gladiolus - my photo challenge topic of flowers. I had removed nearly all of my gladiolus bulbs to re-do my garden this year. When these glads came up, I was delighted that they were YELLOW, one of my favorite colors.
I have joined in with Vanessa at A Fanciful Twist for her Mad Tea Party, and my party cohort is Mad Hatter Muffy Vanderbear! Here is a link-back to the Mat Tea Partiers Mad Tea Party 2012.
Also, for those interested, I am hosting a photography challenge for the month of August. Fun, light-hearted topics to finish out the last month of summer.
How to Treat Elves
I met an elf-man in the woods,
The wee-est little elf!
Sitting under a mushroom tall --
'Twas taller than himself!
"How do you do, little elf," I said,
"And what do you do all day?"
"I dance'n fwolic about," said he,
"'N scuttle about and play;
"I s'prise the butterflies, 'n when
A katydid I see,
'Katy didn't' I say, and he,
Says 'Katy did!' to me!
"I hide behind my mushroom stalk
When Mister Mole comes froo,
'N only jus' to fwighten him
I jump out 'n say 'Boo!'
"'N then I swing on a cobweb swing
Up in the air so high,
'N the cwickets chirp to hear my sing
'N then I play with the baby chicks,
I call them chick chick chick!
'N what do you think of that?" said he.
I said, "It makes me sick.
"It gives me sharp and shooting pains
To listen to such drool."
I lifted up my foot, and squashed
The G** d**n little fool.
