I love how irises start out male and end up female.

We have pots and pots of amaryllis of red and white and yellow color. They are about finished blooming but one last one is about to open.

And of course all the cactus has bloomed.

Getting ready to self-actualize and subsequently overtaking intangibles aren't naturally synchronized, or synchronous if more liketh you.
The getting ready evolved regardless of what/whom is to become overtaken, the overtaking being the only thing, very much so, thereby necessarily leaving out any individual actors as Althouse has untypically wishcasted here, seemingly outing herself as anti-allium to the untrained rookie eye.

Plants make people sentimous and for a reason I agree with and wish not to alter.

In the short term yes you could make some stupid sports analogy, but the Iris has been around for billions of years depending on your inclusion of ancestors plant-wise in the equation, incidentally most unlike you who had loving parents or worthy idols of a non-blasphemous bent in your unwritten what we can label history accurately.

So any idea any one given factor in bumper-sticker fashion can ignore all that didn't happen and didn't influence in any given short period ignoring the billions of years reality has left us alone marks you as idiotically ripe for manipulation of varying mediums, Google's Blogger not excluded.

I just worry that white people will not be allowed to eat Mexican or Asian food. Maybe we should just stop going to those restaurants so we take no chances.

mockturtle said...

I would let them. Irises are so much prettier.

Guildofcannonballs said...

People who mention others but not n.n are mistaken, and tenacity and effectiveness and divine worth are before he/she eats breakfast.

As the proggies ratchet up their wins, I just hope my emulation is better than nuttin'.

Since I can't fool myself that is the case, I am a guessing I have to do more emulatin 'till it sinks in.

Kitchen sink, fwiw.

My mother's island garden was always on the verge between poppies and allium this time of year. I miss that.

Meanwhile on Montana, our candidate supposedly body slammed a reporter from the Guardian and now it's all over the nets.

So that's like another vote for impeachment in 2018 if Quist wins tomorrow.

No problem. Trump not only bodyslammed the evil Mr. McMahan the President of WWE, he shaved his head afterwards for good measure. What a guy!

A superstitious fat black guy is accusing the President Trump of attempting to implement “ethnic cleansing” through proposed budget cuts designed to shrink the federal government.

"This budget, if I can be honest with you, is an attempt to implement ethnic cleansing in this nation from people of color, but also poor white folk from whom services being but will be impacted the most," he said in lieu of an explanation.

Wild Chicken,

Assuming Quist wins tomorrow, wouldn't he need to win again in 2018? And frankly, if Quist would win again in 2018 we'd likely be looking at massive losses for the Reps. anyway so one vote probably wouldn't matter.

This special election is more important for the various narratives being pushed than for any actual results, although tonight's idiocy will pretty much prevent any conclusive results.

Wouldn't that be likely to 'garner' him more votes?

Christopher said...

Also, as per Decision Desk, 65%+ of the vote is already in for Montana.

FullMoon said...

Trump beats evil Vince and shaves his head !!!

Meade's choice of Iris will define him. There are so many varieties it's like a super-accurate Jungian test.

Fingers and toes crossed it's not some anti-Christ bearded thing, like seriously, only Irises can be horticultural train wrecks.

Post a pic when it's in bloom.

Same of course can be said of tulips. Buying stock bulbs in the first place raises flags, a plebeian mistake usually, or if not that an intellectual botanical disconnect.

It takes a sensitive gardening mind to get over the bulb hype and hit the truth of the matter, like Tulipa clusiana or any of the hundreds of species and good hybrids that ring true and aren't like a zombie quest for decoration.

Looking forward to seeing if there are tulips in our future here.

I've been disappointed in the garden shots I've seen so far. Heck, it's not even my subject.

Earnest Prole said...

Hey, I've got a great idea: on the eve of my razor-close election, I think I'll attack a reporter just to make things interesting.

I would take Ann Magaret, Raquel Welch or Sophia Loren over any current modern-day starlet. In fact, I can barely name a modern day starlet. (Kim Kardashian? Lena Dunham? Katy Perry?)

It's not even close.

The commission, created with the best of intentions by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau after years of indifference from Stephen Harper, has morphed, since its creation eight months ago, into an impenetrable bureaucratic fortress of the type government is so good at creating

I love that kind of writing, utterly free of bias! Had one written it "The commission, foolishly created by Trudeau after years of wise restraint from Stephan Harper.." and conveyed the identical state of facts?

Naah!

Eye see what you're doing there.

Watched a great documentary on Netflix last night Get Me Roger Stone. It relived the Trump campaign and shows how Trump used Stone's Rules on the campaign trail successfully. Including one Althouse would appreciate, Never be boring. He's a weird unapologetic guy. The beauty of the documentary is that a leftist would view it with horror, while a Trumpist would find it laugh out loud funny, just like the 2016 campaign.

Funny how liberals never seem to find bizarre formulations that twist stories to make them more favorable to conservatives. I think maybe that liberals think that "reading comprehension" is the whole thing, some of them anyway. Once you understand the point that the writer is trying to make, you are done, and conservatives tend to think that that is just the first step in understanding the article. Critical thinking, and the application of known facts comes next, including what is known about the agenda of the authors and editors.

That's why Althouse is an honorary conservative.

I just worked Funafuti (T2R) on 40m, I suppose thanks to a coronal mass ejection.

"Hey, stop that woman! She's taking photos of people's irises from within 17 feet using a 200mm telephoto lens!"

Nice try, Althouse, but not discreet enough.

I didn't want to derail the other thread, but I have to applaud some first rate trolling here by ARM.

When you bail out of a DVD for boredom or its supidity quotient, the PC DVD player remembers where you left off. If you're coming back to something you watched long ago and have forgotten the plot, its picking up mid-plot is a clue that this one is a loser. This is a real time-saver.

The decent ones I exit after the end on the menu page (otherwise it picks up on closing credits), as a sign that it's rewatchable to my future self.

Plan ahead.
