Weekend Reading: The Strange but Beautiful Things Edition

I don't have time for a long list of links this week, but I have two things to share.

First, the words and their histories in this article from Mental Floss delight me.

Second, I came across a picture I took of one of my gardening failures. I think I meant to post it but never did. This is what happens if you forget to use your green onions.


It also delights me.

Happy weekend!

  1. Ours have a purple tint. :) Though I don't think of it as a gardening failure at all.

  2. Yeah, not really a failure. There is a whole class of ornamental alliums (onion and garlic family). I planted chives as much for the flowers as the greens.

    Think of it instead as "letting it go to seed" for next year's crop. :)

  3. Wow. That makes me want to stick my green onion in the ground!

Sorry for the CAPTCHA, folks. The spammers were stealing too much of my time.
