    “The true Southern watermelon is a boon apart, and not to be mentioned with commoner things. It is chief of this world'd luxuries, king by grace of God over all the fruits of the earth. When one has tasted it, he knows what the angels eat. It was not a Southern watermelon that Eve took: we know it because she repented.” - Mark Twain

    Sometimes when I am enjoying watermelon, I imagine that here is the reason a superior extraterrestrial civilization will take over our planet. For this alone the backwater star Sol will be known, for it is the one with 'The Watermelon Planet'.

    You should eat dinner before dessert, Gremmie.

    Xacuti looks pretty tasty to me. Xacuti is a spicy chicken dish native to Goa, India. Kashmiri chillies and other spices go into making the pungent, bright colored curry.

    You had 'Z' Scheherazade, but you haven't chosen a new topic. If it's all right with you and, um, Gremmie and our OP/host Squirrel, can we do flowers? It will be scientific and pretty at the same time. A really winning combo, what?

    Dude... That was unexpected, and caused me to forget dinner. If I wanted to see that, I'd go to Walmart.

    She certainly is a special, precious flower, but beat my fake black big mama? I don't think any one really wins here. :{

    The Crimson Dalia

    Wiki disambiguation???

    Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image!



    Dalia is the goddess of fate in the Lithuanian mythology. She is the giver and taker of goods and property. Dalia is often confused with and hard to distinguish from Laima, another goddess of fate. Sometimes Dalia is thought of as a different manifestation of Laima.[1] However, Laima is more involved in predicting the length of a person's life while Dalia is more concerned with material wealth a person would earn during the lifetime – allotting a proper share (Lithuanian: dalis) to everyone. According to myths, just as a father divides his estate among the children, so Dievas Senelis (manifestation of supreme god Dievas) allots each newborn with a proper share.[1] Dalia is seen more as an enforcer of Dievas' will rather than a decision maker. She can appear as a woman, lamb, dog, swan, or duck

    Edelweiss. Every morning they greet me!

    Small and white, clean and bright: they look happy to meet me!

    Blossom of snow may they bloom and grow, bloom and grow forever!

    Very interesting about the cherry seeds that spent time in space.

    Fuchsias come in so many forms and colors.

    Very nice fuchsias. Gardenias are very nice too. I will try to make my next one a flower that isn't small and white though. I've had several of those now including the cherry blossoms (sakura)

    Sorry Scheherazade. If you want to do a second H that's fine, but I really wanted to get in Hyacinth because I know a good poem to go with it:

    When of thy mortal goods thou find thyself bereft,
    And from thy slender store two loaves alone are left...
    Sell one, and with the dole
    buy hyacinths to feed thy soul.

    -Moslih Eddin Saadi
