August’s "Down on your Knees"
Picture This Photo Contest at
http://www.gardeninggonewild.com/?p=7067


                              Cattail Sparklers.Typha latifolia
These fluffy, white seeds were once used for stuffing blankets,
pillows and toys. Native Americans would put them inside
moccasins and around cradles, for additional warmth,
but don't talk to me about additional warmth
right now!

Very cool photo, ESP! What a unique angle. And I love seeing wee people enjoying your garden. So many garden blogs lack that essential human perspective. Yours, never.

Hi Pam and thanks. This shot reminds me of an old 70's album cover somehow? It is amazing to me already to read some of my earlier posts and see just how much the hobbits have changed. A blog is a great way to capture a time-line.
Cheers Pam, ESP.

Thank you Kim, we had a fun day messing around with these cut cattails. The ground was covered in a blanket of their seeds.

Oh yeah, that's a good one for the subject. I really enjoy the photos of your garden with your kids playing in it. With a lawn, kids just play there. With gardens the kids tend to learn things while they play. They will know later in life just how lucky they were. Bob at Draco

Hi Bob.
My daughter is already asking for a small plot in the patch to plant her "flowers". She gets annoyed that I never buy the "pretty" flowers..."Why don't you like flowers?" she sadly asks! I find it really funny.

Thanks Bob and I hope so.

Thanks Sylvia. I am really happy the picture did well. I have a handful of images that I really like and this was one of them. It fitted the criteria for the competition perfectly. Do you have a blog?
I hope you will visit me at my new WordPress location.
Regards,
ESP.

Thanks.

I am not sure how fabulous my garden will be at the end of this unrelenting drought and summer here in central Texas. It may resemble a full English breakfast rather than a garden at the end of it!
A rather worried.
