Is that a real flower?I mean, checkered like that?Absolutely beautiful. Whoever took it, thank you for something so delightful.
Yes, it's real. If you look closely, the "checks" are more like spots, but the illusion is freaky.
It looks like a tablecloth at an Italian-American eatery!
That flower looks world-weary. Like a barmaid with a checkered, if not quite fritillary, past.True fritillarianism remains the preserve of the idle rich.
Red flower with large white spotsPut it in my garden and I could kill it insider 48 hours
I could kill it inside of 48 hours
Phil, Your first post was clear enough to anyone familiar with hard Boston accents.
Here's one of my flowers from four years ago. Problem is, I forget the name. It was an annual. I have one idea, but I'm not really sure that I'm right. I can't seem to find a good match when I'm searching online. Any plant detectives want to show off their knowledge?
Freakin' fakin' flower.Who makes a flower look like a gingham dress?
I heard that angry jihadists are buying up all the Roundup from garden supply stores. They plan a mass Flowercide in honor some dead guy. Beware of crazy Pakistanis carrying garden sprayers.
Peter Hoh- that's not delphinium?
Like the "name that tune" gameshow: Put it in my garden and I could kill it inside 48 hoursI can do it in 36. And not deliberately. That would be cheating.
Wow. Great photo.
I watched a good thriller the other day called Coffin Rock (2009).
Glory be to God for dappled things...Beautiful pic,Peter.
It looks like a droopy limp cock.tits.
MayBee, I've kicked that possibility around, but I'm pretty sure that these were annuals, and delphiniums are (supposedly) perennials. I never had much luck with the few delphiniums I planted. Two years, and that was it. Delphinium exaltatum seems like a match, but on my plant, the flower seems to be joined to the stem. Every delphinium photo I look at shows a little stem-type part that holds the flower away from the main stem.
Dave, I've got a soft spot for GMH.
I am a fag and I will have you know that I do not know what a single flower is called.I coud not tell a daffodil from a morning glory.And FUck Off...I just wanted to say that because I see it here frequently.And Suck My Balls Teabagger.And you fucking libtard.thank you and good night.
Titus, You got me thinking about the various prepositional combinations of "fuck."Fuck off: the go-to riposte on this boardFuck up: don't do that, and for sure don't be oneFuck over: that ain't rightFuck around: hell, yeahFuckin: the all-purpose adjectiveFuck out, under, about: linguistic slack!!
Post the pretty pictures of flowers. Althouse, you were in the tank for right-wing propaganda blogs. Those blogs seem rather less than happy that Obama got Bin Laden. What kind of people are they? Why are they so obviously not happy that we got Bin Laden? Althouse won't look too closely because she makes money off them by spreading their propaganda.
I recall when I first started getting trolled off this blog. It was over Obama's comments that we should focus on Bin Laden and be tough on Pakistan (who were quite obviously hiding Bin Laden). I'm glad we now have a President who can keep his eye on the ball. I find it odd that all the right-wing blogs that Althouse is 100% in the tank for are less than happy that we got our man.
What right-wing blogs are unhappy Obama got Bin Laden? Everyone is totally happy Obama got Bin Laden. If anyone at a right-wing blog is unhappy at all is it because Obama didn't acknowledge that he got Bin Laden using the reviled Bush's reviled techniques, and that the left is lauding as heroes the same people they used to deride as Cheney's personal assassination squad.
I find it odd that all the right-wing blogs that Althouse is 100% in the tank for are less than happy that we got our man.Gawd.Even Rush Limbaugh is glad we got the man.You just wake up from a nap? Been reading this here blog much?
I'm glad we now have a President who can keep his eye on the ball.Now if he could only learn to keep his head down and his leading arm straight, he could get his handicap down close to single digits. Then he'd really be awesome.
Althouse is just so smart! She's gonna use her lawyer skills to defend racist birthers! Meanwhile Obama kept his eye on the ball and fulfilled his promise to bring justice to Bin Laden.Go fuck off, and tell InstaPundit to fuck off too.
I recall when I first started getting trolled off this blog. ...Go fuck off, and tell InstaPundit to fuck off too.Autotrolling.
What's black and white and red all over? Drudge.From Sunday's strawberry To today's splash of redThe result of a double tap. Tonight I'm red weary. Tired of the sniping I needed a clean slateSomething fresh. The Checkered Fritillary suits nicely, reminding me of lampshade or better yet, a Royal Wedding Hat.@ Chip...don't forget the all-encompassing Cluster!
Oh, MamaM, if we start getting into noun-fuck compounds we could be here all night.
Rush limbaugh, the hardcore drug addict who committed multiple felonies that have landed many a black man in prison, was nothing but an asshole when we got Bin Laden.It's obscene to see so many folks go to prison for less than Rush did. Why does he get off when other people's lives are wrecked by the War On Drugs? Althouse won't blog about it. Even as grads from her law school prosecute people and send them off to prison for doing less than her hero Rush did. And just what was Rush doing going to South America with a suitcase filled with Viagra?
And just what was Rush doing going to South America with a suitcase filled with Viagra?My first and only guess would have something to do with Carnival.
Argh. On closer inspection, I see that the flowers on my plant are not joined directly to the main stem. Maybe it is a delphinium.
True, Chip S...maybe it's best to play through that hole!
Looks like LoafingOaf has spelunked his way out of Sarah Palin's pussy and graced us with some of his little droppings. Extra points for prefacing his turd squat with a completely disingenuous "compliment" about pretty flowers.
"Beautiful flower picture, you fucking right-wing racist!"
Rush limbaugh, the hardcore drug addict who committed multiple felonies that have landed many a black man in prisonThat particular whine would carry a lot more weight if our current President wasn't a hardcore drug addict who committed multiple felonies without landing in prison -- despite being a black man.Just sayin'.
LoafingOaf said...I recall when I first started getting trolled off this blog. It was over Obama's comments that we should focus on Bin Laden and be tough on Pakistan (who were quite obviously hiding Bin Laden).By trolled off, he must mean successfully rebutted. As for being tough on the Paks, explain why Little Zero doubled foreign aid to Pakistan in the last 2 years.
Consider the checkered lilies, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; but I tell you, not even Loafing Oaf in all his trolling clothed himself like one of these.
I want to thank P & P for not allowing me to get my hands dirty..What would we do w/o you guys.
And Rev and edutcher too.
You know you're venerable when posters wax nostalgic about how they got trolled off your blog.

Apropos of nothing in particular, Canada's Liberal Party went down in flames last night.
"Meanwhile Obama kept his eye on the ball and fulfilled his promise to bring justice to Bin Laden."Yes, Obama went mano a mano with Bin Laden and personally tore his head clean off, with his bare hands!!!L.Oaf -- can you not see what a nasty little troll you've become? And all because of Sarah Palin. Sad. <Hangs head; sighs>
Now that Obama has gotten a taste of Chuck Norris Death Wish Bruce Lee Harry Callahan, can he stop?Or is it like having just one potato chip?In contrast, Hillary's The horror! look suggests she's not into physical retribution. At least if she has to watch.
Okay, party's over.Time to start beating up on Obama again.
Beware the come-hither look of the fritillary; her checkered past is laden with suitors discarded like so many honeybees.
I still can't get over this flower. I was tempted to write, "No Photoshopped flowers, please." It looks to me like half of one of those woven Chinese finger traps.
Wow, we haven't seen the Loafing Oaf in a long time. I don't think he had internet service when he moved next door to Sarah Palin.Welcome back buddy.
Hey did you hear that Osama Bin Laden will be on next seasons Celebrity Apprentice?
Just because we're used to seeing these things, it doesn't make them any less miraculous. I've never thought of God as being supernatural except in the sense that he created what we call nature.
@Chip, fritillaria are quite real, and this is an unusually lovely specimen. I haven't seen a fritillary in years, which is unfortunate. I tried to grow some at my old house, but without any luck. After three or four years I gave up.
