Scavenger Hunt Sunday

(One from the archives - Grandchildren July 2008)


(Another archives - December 2010)

Trend or Trending  
A trillium found in the woods in 2007 had 5 petals;
Below, in 2008, it had 4 petals;
 Below, in 2009, it had 3 petals (as it should);
 In 2010, it had 4 petals;

Again, in 2011, it had 4 petals.
 And in 2012??  We shall see!  :-)
 (Are you noticing the distinct change in markings, also?)

(If it's in print, is it not real?)

The Plastic Shredder and Gobbler!
Without which I could not cope with All the Leaves here!  :-)

Love the gingerbread houses, trillium, and donut seeds.

well this is my first experience of scavenger hunt sunday. Interesting and very quirky. I find the trillium photos and info fascinating, not sure if it's got some sinister deeper meaning or not (lol), the cakes look very funny all laid out like that and makes me want to eat a wall or roof. Most importantly though, your grandchildren look happy and gorgeous.

Hi Monica! It's a gardener's challenge, is it not? Donut seeds? ;-)

It's good to see you, Catmint! I've participated in this meme for several weeks now.. it's fun and a good challenge. :-)

Lovely flower the trilium...donut seeds? let me know if they work. And sweet grandchildren...always a great subject for love...Please consider getting rid of your verification marker, painful to try to read.

Shady Gardener said...

Thank you, Clint. I've just signed up for your give-away. I wish I could create a post, just now, but I'm not at home...

Shady Gardener said...

Hi Deanna, I'm glad you're enjoying your visits here. I just found out how to get rid of the new verification marker. I agree that it is "painful." :-)

Great interpretation of trending - my husband loves watching plants grow like that.

Lea said...

Great photo of the kids!
I thought Cherrios were donut seeds!
Have a great day!

Hi Shady,
I enjoyed looking at your posts on the way to here. You had a nice assortment of subjects. I am glad I got to see your trilliums coming up. I am sad that the one a friend gave me last year doesn't appear to be coming up. I'll have to look again.
