I was a bit taken by these seed pod things (if that's what they are) that were part of this large drift of hot yellow and orange coloured lillies.


There's nothing terribly scrotal about them, but I remember thinking they kind of look like green, slightly spikey, testicles.

...and there we have an insight into the curious landscape of my psyche, gentle reader.

No, I see that too. I agree.

I love them. They're canna lilies and I used to plant them every spring. I find the scrotal association a stretch, but I love that, too.

Whew, glad I'm not the only one.

I love canna lillies and I guess I kinda love scrotums too. Only one of them is pretty though.

and next you'll be saying Georgia O'Keeffe has vaginas in the flowers?

lol to the O'Keeffe reference ;-)

TOA, you're really not alone, I've always thought they looked kinda scrotal... but I never shared. heh. I have Cannas up the back near the garage, the darker-flowered varieties have dark bloody red seed pods and they look... well, like little red scrotums!

Do these get shown at the Flower Show? Talk about 'looks on their faces of trapped terror.' Do you smell them or lick them?

But seriously, did you ever see the bloom of the split-leaf philodendron monstera? So very rude. I will post a photo soon.

Nature is so, like, sassy.

The Other Andrew said...

MG, I know! I heart nature.

Kenyo, post your plant porn! I for one want to see it.

Speedy, you've got "Cannas up the back" - ooh err missus, sounds a bit rude!

yeeeaaarrrssss TOA, I was wondering how that would go down... errr so to speak... oh dear. I might as well just shout 'bumsex' for good measure and pretend the Smurfs are around, eh? ;-)
