Default MMTPT377~October 20, 2015~A Weed is Just a Flower Blooming in the Wrong Place

Welcome to Teapot Tuesday
the Sisterhood of the Traveling Teaparty
and Challenge #377


A Weed is Just a Flower Blooming in the Wrong Place


Note: Anyone is welcome to play! You automatically become a Teapotter the first time you play in our challenge. Also, you do not have to write a story. You just have to be inspired by the teapot or by the story about this week's location! Have fun! If this is your first Teapot Tuesday Challenge, please mention that in your commentary so we can be sure to greet you properly, in pure Teapot Tuesday fashion. Your participation in Destination Station is 100% voluntary and not at all required. Just have fun!

The Rest of the Story:

1: Weeds, weeds, weeds....a gardeners work is never done. Weeds to pull in the spring and weeds to pull in the fall. Mulch to put down, deadheading to be done, new plants to put in, dividing the overgrown ones. Whew!! A lot of work for something sometimes so fickle.

2: Carolyn loved her garden and could be found out back most days as soon as the sun came up (cuz that Texas sun gets hot later y'know) playing and digging, and even some singing to her plants. This year is no different however there is one thing puzzling her and she hasn't solved it yet. While pulling weeds this past spring, she spied a plant that she had never seen before and she was pretty sure it wasn't a weed, didn't have the right leaf form after all. But what kind of plant it was has her stumped so far. The leaves are long, skinny and a littly prickly on the underside with some red along the edges and are arranged in a clump. Hmmmm???

3: She doesn't recall ordering anything that looked like it, she didn't "relocate" any from other gardens that she can remember, so it is kind of magical in it's own way. But what the heck is it? She has been watching and wondering all summer. She has taken pictures and measurements and gone to the library and looked through book after book and found several close but not exactly like it. She even drove to the big city and went to the Extension Agency but no one there had any idea either. She is really beginning to get frustrated waiting for the thing to bloom so she can see what it is.

4: A mystery it is! Ooooh, a mystery, a whatisit of the highest order. Just the thing for the Teapotters to investigate. Surely one of our 42,000 members will have some idear what this plant is.


Challenge Translation:

Ok, detectives....we need to find out what kind of flower this is. Bring your best guess to the teaparty this week. Weeds go out back to the compost bin.

EPEC=extra points for extra cookies:

Bring some encouraging scripture for extra cookies

Destination Station:

This week our cards are going to Texas. If you would like a destination for your card, how about sending it to Carolee. She was brought to our attention by SCSr Maggie (mschoener)



to find out why as well as get the address to mail your card, please visit post 484 in the Teapot Tuesday Destination Station thread. Please remember that just because you participate in a Teapot Tuesday challenge that is combined with a card drive request, it does not mean that you are REQUIRED to send your cards. It is totally 100% voluntary!

Here is a quick link to MMTPT377 challenge gallery


Be sure to you use KEYWORD MMTPT377 in your upload and post a comment here so we can all see your card!

Ever want to get a jump on next week's challenge card? SCS has given Sheri (KSNurse) permission to create an email Teapot Tuesday Cheater Group and email the challenge out on the Saturday before the Tuesday of the challenge so you girls can have the weekend to make your card. Send her a pm with your email address if you wanna be a Cheater!

If you are confused about these challenges, see the first sticky post of this thread for more information. There is also a directory of individual challenges.

I just wanted to post an update on my DD's MIL's condition. Unfortunately, the surgery was not a complete success and she is having to go through more rounds of chemo, but is still hopeful that this will take care of the cancer. I received a note from Carolee's DH regarding the cards she received from you. It reads:

"Carolee has been under the weather but wanted me to respond back to you. Thank you for your beautiful card and for your getting the rest of the cards sent to her. They came at a time when needed; they were all unique and beautiful. Thanks again."

And my thanks to you that sent her cards. You really do make a difference.
