NOTHING TO SAY

Finally the peppermint Hibiscus has bloomed. I gave this to mom last year for mothers day 08' it was beautiful I had bought it at a nursery for her and it had blooms everywhere...then nothing, nothing I tell you till yesterday. When I walked out for the first time I could hear music playing softly then I spyed her there she was in all her glory :-) so I thought I would share her today.

golf any one?
these are the coolest mushrooms to me
(click the picture blow it up to see)
I lost a follower last night as I laid sleeping. I am sorry I did. I remember who you are. I am have been around people and reading...sometimes I just don't have a witty comment to come back with so sometimes you might not know I was there...but I was. I am sorry for my lost of a follower, (I understand because I know I am boring because I am NOT a writer...mainly a picture taker and stalker is all I am.) Truly did not mean to upset anyone...
I apologise if I have :-)
Happy Sunday to everybody!
xoxo

I'm sorry you lost a reader :( That just means that a better one will come along!

darsden said...

Kathy- thank you, the mushrooms do remind me of a golf ball.. It's okay and I appreciate it hope I don't lose anymore...I might cry :-(

otin said...

Why are you so down on yourself? Your blog is fun! Especially in the comment section with the replies to your comments.I lose followers sometimes but usually get more right after that! Just because someone stops following does not mean that you are a failure, I personally love your blog!

dar - i am so impressed that you knew who the folower was. I lost a follower last night, and since blogger changed the widget thing for followers, I have a hard time with it. I don't know who stopped following me last night, but I know how you feel. I love it here so keep up what you do.

And, as always, love your photos. Makes me want to run to the nursery and buy some flowers.

PEPPERMINT MICHAELS????!!! YUUUUUMMMMEEEEEEEEEE!!!

Course, now you're gonna have to explain the michaels, Dar, or everyone will think i'm nuts....

Wait....

Or not...

♥ Braja said...

Oh well I got the better bargain cos it only took me three hits to get that comment up. Jeez, have we imploded Blogger's system or what????

darsden said...

damn blogger is eating my comments

darsden said...

otin-thank you for your sweet kind words I appreciate it. Yes, the comments and tag teams are great

darsden said...

PHST-it took me a moment but I finally figured it out. I appreciate your kind words too.

darsden said...

otin-I wasn't through but blogger was...the pressure of so many funny funny talented writers out there...man the pressure LOL commenting is great especially the tag team comments...love it.

darsden said...

PHST...wasn't through...again blogger booogers.
I appreciate you coming by too and everybody else that stops by...makes my day :-))

darsden said...

Braja-LOL I know peppermint :-)) I will have to do some explaining ... Blogger has given me grief all day. eating my comments...not posting them..then posting them...I am so confused.. ;-)

almost like the michael thing..peppermint, hot biscuit thing...LOL :-)

IN reference to blowing it up...just show me the button I will take care of it!

Suzy said...

I print out my followers about every 2 months. If they depart, then I depart them! I just lost 2, didn't know it and then immediately got 2 new ones. Not every blog is for every person. People have different tastes and that's ok.

darsden said...

Suzy that's a great idea..good way to keep up. I have done research all day on this cuz it did upset me...what I see is she is missing on everybody elses blog roll too...sooooo not so personal now...I am more concerned now!

SweetPeaSurry said...

Oh it's lovely that your Hibiscus flowered. I have the most horrible time getting things to grow. I really should give up, but NO NO NO ... I'm going to keep trying!!! The Hibiscus is really lovely!

blessings!

darsden said...

SweetPeaSurry-thank you and Never give up, everybody has a lil green in their thumbs. Thankyou for coming by today :-) Blessings to you too!

darsden said...

SweetPeaSurry-blogger decide I was through with my comment...but I am not. I wanted to thank you and tell you how much I appreciate you signing up on the side bar over there.
Com'on back anytime sit a while and visit :-)

otin said...

You know that we are all dying to know who the lost follower was!

darsden said...

otin-I am dying to scream it...but I won't. I care too much about her to do that to her so I will just not point fingers and say...I am sure others will start noticing soon. I have looked everywhere I know to look for her and she's not on anybodies blog roll I can see.

Reddirt Woman said...

You have some of the most beautiful hibiscus' that I've seen. Wonderful.

Helen

Susan said...

Those mushrooms are so cool. After enjoying them for a few hours though, I wouldn't be able to resist hitting them toward the fairway.

darsden said...

Reddirt woman-Helen so sweet of you to say. I have been waiting over a year for this one to bloom again...(after what I paid for it from the nursery about damn time all I have to say)
beside thank you to you :-)

darsden said...

Susan-they are pretty cool looking and believe me after a couple of days I pretend to be Pele' and kick them but they explode into a brown dust they don't go anywhere. Bunch of brown dust and thats it. But they are cool to look at for about 4 days. Maybe next time I will try my 9 iron LOL

Jeanne said...

I lost a follower this weekend, too, also a known quantity. However, I don't think it was my slipshod visits/comments that caused his defection -- I suspect my libretto for "Blogging, The Musical" didn't jibe with his religious beliefs.

I'm actually surprised he stayed around as long as he did....

Twisted Fencepost said...

And a very pretty one she is!
The mushrooms are cool, too. I enjoy taking pictures of them too. I like to try to get the camera under them and take the picture looking up. It's not easy.
No one upset here! But I do miss you when I don't hear from you. But I'm okay with it. Cause sometimes I don't have anything witty to say either.
I'm not a writer either. Sometimes I wonder why I blog at all. Not so sure that people really want to hear what I have to say.
I consider you my new friend and if I only hear from you once a week, I consider myself lucky. That's more than I hear from the friends I see face to face. Sad, but true.
And by the way, you started blogging almost a year after me, and you have more followers than I do. That has to mean something.

blognut said...

Oh, honey. Don't ever worry about a follower. I find that I occasionally tick off a follower and lose one, but I always get a few more and we can't make everyone happy, can we? Let's don't worry about it or obsess over who it was if we can help it. So long as you keep the ones that you know are loyal to you and won't disappear over a difference of posted opinion, you'll be fine.

And your flowers are beautiful - as always!

XO

darsden said...

Jeanne-sorry you lost one too!

darsden said...

Twisted Fencepost-she took forever,actually over a year to bloom again. Yes, trying to get under this golf ball would be a challenge. I just wanted them to know I knew they were gone. I appreciate everybody so much taking time to say hey and make a comment. Didn't want them to go unNoticed! Girl I try to stay on top of you read all and make sure no spider has taken you off..LOL I consider you my friend too Becky and I appreciate your kind words very much.

darsden said...

blognut-your so sweet I appreciate your kind words too. Like I said I didn't want them to think I didn't notice or care. Cuz I do, I appreciate all of ya'll very much. The whole point of comments is the variety that you get..good, bad, doesn't matter they are all great.
Thankyou she took a long time to bloom again!

Eternally Distracted said...

Don't worry about the follower situation - I somehow recently deleted EVERYBODY that I was following, not sure how (I am new!!) but I think I have managed to build it back up again ... This could be a possible explanation for the loss on your blog and the fact they have also disappeared from others.

darsden said...

Eternally Distracted-thankyou and a very good point made. Now I am going to make sure I am still on your too..LOL :-))

Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) said...

Those flowers are breathtaking and that mushroom is incredible! I thought it really was a golf ball at first glance! :)

Blogger and Google have been acting up lately - so I wouldn't stress about your lost follower...I double check when I'm on a blog to make sure I'm still following, and sometimes it's showing that I'm not, so I have to re-follow...it can be annoying sometimes... ;) I like Suzy's idea, though, to print and double check... (grin!!)

Hit 40 said...

Your blog is great!! I love your flower pics and your a great commenter!!! I hate it when I lose a follower too. And, I can never remember who it might be. So, I look where ever I go to see if I can figure out on their profile if they dropped my sorry nerdy blog.

darsden said...

Stacy-thank you very much. They do look like golf balls big time until you zoom in on them.
Yes, I have heard blogger is acting up..not taking it personal. JUST realized I wasn't following you...sorry will correct that!

Hit 40- you are just too kind you menu holder you! I bet you are a hottie just like Michel! According to Otin ya'll both are ! YOU don't have a nerdy blog I love your blog...even when you are stealing puppies and kitties it's a cool blog ...love the comments! love tag team comments too :-))
