Meet Stinkweed, Buttercup's Gloomy Twin


There are days I'd like to be Stinkweed, Buttercup's gloomy twin. But I fight that impulse, sometimes minute by minute. And despite the fact that I still haven't heard from either Martha or Rachel -- who are both missing out on a great audience guest -- I am not giving in to gloom. I will not, as one dear and gentle blog friend suggested, put a potato in the exhaust pipe of either Martha or Rachel. Stinkweed is sorely tempted, but not your Buttercup.


No gloom tonight. I am celebrating September, the glorious weather we are having and the fact that I found summer yogurt flavors of cantaloupe and watermelon at the grocery tonight.
Here's to sweet September, to the last lingering moments of summer and the joy of welcoming the beauty of the fall. Here's to autumn leaves and pumpkins, chrysanthemums and cranberries.
Wishing you all the richest bounty of the harvest.

Oh Buttercup, I just love Stinkweed! Please let her come out and play with the turnipy Olde Dame sometimes...!!!

September always makes me think of my college years, and how clearly the chimes would ring out in the chilly air! We had the Westminster Chimes on our campus....*sigh*

HI BUTTERCUP!!!!
You are far to sweet and nice to be a stinkweed!!!
I love fall too only here in the desert southwest we really do not have a typical Fall season, no falling gold, red and orange leaves, But I do vision it often!! Fall is my favorite season, I say that as we don't have it!!!! We can drive 2 hours north and see fall, so we usually do that!!!!I do love pumpkins, fallen leaves, cool morning air and coffee!!!!
Have a blessed day, your e-mail or call from Martha and Rachael are coming, I jsut feel it!!!
I will Pray about that!!!!
hugs,
jamie

Good for YOU for keeping that stinkweed out of your buttercup garden! I am constantly fighting briars trying to choke out Lilly!
Martha? Rachel? What is your problem? You NEED a buttercup in your audience!
May be in Jersey in 2-3 weeks, depending on how the hubby is feeling. Plan on spending at least 2 days in NY...maybe we can finally meet~
Have a wonderful day!
♥,Lilly

So is your birthday in September? I agree with you - life is a choice - chose to be happy - it's healthier.

Ah, Buttercup, I too have a twin. Sadly she is often worse than gloomy. Apparently she isn't nice to the color purple either.

But I think she may be hiding and I am enjoying the coming autumn!! I love fall. As you look at the city, I'm visiting the cornfields for a long weekend. What a contrast.

Hope your weekend is joyful!

Julie

Just as an experiment...you could use the potato method to the road of happiness.
