A Poetic Thankful Thursday

Hi (Furry)furriends💗



that the Sun was shining today…

and yesterday…

and that the temperatures rose to 21°C…(69.80F)

so no more cold behinie

while I watch the mousies and birdies…

lots of birdies…

Granny is


for the one…and only…


that already was eaten by some critters…

but she still was


that this one showed up…

and she’s


for this whatever-it-is-plant…

that has made himself some fine

artichoke-a-like flowers/vegetables/fruits…

after more than six years that we have it…

If someone of you know what this plant is

we sure would like to hear it…

…I give you an Extra Pawkiss for it…

I think I have to put in some action now

before we all fall asleep in the Rays of the Sun

that’s shining down on me…

So here’s the picture that Angel Sammy and Teddy

brought in

for their weekly Poetry hop…

Granny has one good memory on this one

in her younger years…

so let’s see what she told me…

High school girls bowl (1950).

“One day in the youth of my Granny

she went bowling with her furriends

in the valley

the boy she had a crush on that day

was trying to impurress her

in a very strange way

he picked up the bowling ball

jumped up high

and a made a fall

and that didn’t impurressed her

at all

and she started to laugh

on that strange behavior

and thought

that one will never be my savior.”

😎🌞‍📚Have a Happy Thursday my furriends📚🌞😎

🙏Stay Safe Healthy and Yourselfie🙏

    Hahah… He was never going to be Granny’s saviour! Hahaha
    I am so busy, Binky. I am preparing for the first presentation of ABC of Spirit Talk at a local Inner Health Centre. Such fun!

    That’s a very nice paprika! I don’t think I’ve ever seen one before.

    I love that poem, Binky, and methinks the plant is a bit strange! 😬😻

    I asked Mr. Google about that plant and he said Japanese Camellia, but I really don’t think he is right. It does look like some sort of artichoke though.
    The rain has stopped and the sun is out now, but it is only 10C.

    I tried to identify your mystery plant, but came up with nothing that seemed correct. Do if the plant is a perennial, may be next year a garden professor can help you! That I am not:)

    What a fun poem from a funny memory! My gutter balls would not save anyone either…

    We started our day with plenty of dark cloiuds and rain, but later in the afternoon. the sun shone gloriously! Alas *she* was at her work, so she showed the bright rays to the peeps she was caring for, and they loved seeing the sunshine. It does help their moods/minds a lot to see a blue sky and sunshine.

    I’m glad you’re getting some warm weather, Binky 🙂 I must admit, I’ve never thought of paprika as a plant, just a powder!

    That Paprika is beautiful. Your mystery plant, I don’t know either, just wait and see what happens if there will be a fruit afterwards. Who knows. Enjoy the sunshine!

    HA! Love the poem with the story of your Granny and the boy who tried to impress! Cute – brought back some memories for my Mom too. We have no idea what that mystery plant is – maybe from another planet????????? Enjoy your sunny day dear Binky and thank you for being a “poetry partner” with us!
    Love, Teddy 🙂 ❤
