Not Everybody Hates the Heat

Check it! We have the happiest hydrangea of all time and space! Glorious!



Speaking of plants, I have this plant (as one of three) in my office:


It periodically has these funky, alien, waxy feeling, star cluster blooms:



I like them but I think they may be eating my brain. I don't know how else to explain the work I've been producing lately.

It's totally worth losing brain matter for a really cool looking alien plant, right? So, I guess I should say: I like them and I think they may be eating my brain.

Gorgeous hydrangeas! Those are one of my favorites.

Mine, too. And ours are nice and bluey. :)

If the alien plant starts talking in the voice of Levi Stubbs, please do not give it any human blood. We all know how that turns out.

Brains should be okay, though.

FEED ME!!!! :)

Pretty hydrangeas! And that brain eating plant is quite lovely, too. Perhaps you'd be wise, for the time being, to hang a sign outside your office that says "Do not feed the plant" or something. Just to be safe. You'd probably hate to be the source of brain drain at your organization. I mean, if it's sucking out your brain, there's no telling what it might do to others...

That hydrangea looks awesome! We have one in the front yard that has mainly pink blossoms, but one of my friends said we can adjust the color of the flowers by putting different amounts of lime around the bush. Maybe I'll try that next year. If your brain-eating plant bothers you, send it to me. My brain was eaten away long ago...it happens when you work for the government too long.

J.M.: That could explain a lot.

Bilbo: Yes, I've heard you can mess with their heads by adjusting the soil. Very Calvin-esque (as in Calvin & Hobbes).

You can actually get slightly different colored blooms on your hydrangea at the same time. My dad used to go out just as the blooms were opening up and pour stuff on them to adjust the very acidic soil at our house to something a bit more basic. We'd have a hydrangea with multicolor blooms. Hope he didn't give it whiplash or anything.
