My confession


Hello, my name is Plant Crazy and I like to dumper dive, take things off of the curb, and go ditch diving. (This is where you are supposed to say Hi back and then announce who you are and the crazy things you like to do.) What you don't understand what ditch diving is??? Well sit right down and let me tell you about one of my favorite hobbies, that I'm sure embarrasses the heck out of my husband, right along with curb and dumpster diving. Yesterday my friend Angela and I visited several ditches, that I found last year, that are clock full of beautiful irises. Like any good junkie, I came up with a couple varieties I didn't have and just had to take home. Since most of the irises aren't in full bloom yet, I mean it's my duty to go back and look again, right? After all, the cemetery right down the road has some of our family plots in it and I'll have to go back to see if I managed to kill the poison ivy or if I need to carefully paint more so as not to kill all the peonies and irises there. Right? I love this time of year! Happy digging everyone!

Hi Plant Crazy and Bug Lady,
I am Toy Truck Maven. I love haunting the thrift shops for construction toys.
PC, I have a couple of arcs of your ill-gotten gains by my front steps--traditional blue/purple ones. VERY pretty.
BL, Although they are not bugs per-se, I LOVE spiders.

Hi Plant Crazy, Bug Lady, and Toy Truck Maven, it is nice to meet you. My confession is that I am related to all of you!

Hi Toy Truck Maven! Good to hear hear about you hobbies. If you like spiders you should ask the Bug Lady about her tarantulas. Now Related to All, I have to say I think that is a cop-out and that you need to tell about your real hobbies like playing computer games and seeing who can collect the most fabric! Hehehe.

OK, I'll try again. Hello, my name is Collector, and I like to collect fabrics and books! Whew, it is so nice to get that off my chest. I think I'll celebrate by checking to see if there are any new books or fabrics that I might need...
Plant Lady, did I do a good job here?
