Evocative, erotic, astonishing, gorgeous, sensuous, and . . . nice. Quite a string of adjectives. Thaks, all.

I'll add "graphic" and "good" to that list of adjectives, harlot. I find that "but" even more interesting, though. Thanks!

ut oh. now i did another haiku for ice plant. i better call it quits. i need to get back to work ! but it was a worthy idea i should have snatched up sooner. thank you again for the suggestion. maybe i will test it out in future posts instead of just blabbing my mouth off about plants.

Harlot, I think the odd haiku now and then would fit very well on your garden-oriented blog (which is delightful, by the way).

i kind of went overboard, ha ! i said i'd go back to working and lied. but now it's the truth.

some haiku dabbling would be a nice change of pace to some posts, true.

thank you ! i'll toss some in here and there in the future.

I'll never tell, harlot. By all means, dabble.

Arriving (once again) somewhat late, I would add this one to the "string of adjectives" : humorous !

Dianne, your secret is safe with us.

Your adjective has been added to the official list, Monika.
