I’ve mentioned my cute little colloquial name for this plant before. The real name of this particular pink type is ‘Purple Plum’. The sign accompanying the plant also gave it the common name Tailflower.
They make it too easy.
SO happy I found you! Now I know I’m happy I also added you to my homepage……you knowhow to catch a girls eye…..great job…I love, LOVE your blog!
LOL! You could also call it the ‘Pink Potty Tail’ flower (honest to God, that was my parent’s term growing up, amazed my brother wasn’t scarred for life!) Thanks for the chuckle!
lmao!I love it , it is alot prettier than the real thing.
Pahaahh! Too funny! I did a double take when I saw the post title on my blog’s sidebar!
I’ve been reading your blog for over a year now, and I almost started screaming “I read this!” to the random person beside me when I saw your blog mentioned in this month’s issue of Better Home & Garden at the Dr’s office the other day. You go, You Grow! ;-)
I don’t quite get why my first comment was edited re: penis envy (cactus) as a possible spam but that is not important. I am just happy to see that you had the coutersy to respond to me!
Jennifer: You first comment was not edited. It was deleted. I explained, via email why it looked like spam. It wasn’t until subsequent comments came through that I could see you were a person and not a spammer.
Hahaha! I’m glad I’m not the only one who calls them penis flowers!
