A Little Snobbery On The Sedum?

A few weeks ago, when the sedum flowers were still pink instead of the very dark rose they are now, the little ladies in the neighborhood decided to all get together for an afternoon of friendly chit chat and a little snack.





They were all gathered on one side gossiping away and didn't notice that another visitor had decided to snack alone on the other side.




Once they saw her, they flew over to her numerous times to invite her to join them but each time, Ms. Hoity Toity stuck up her nose and in her best Greta Garbo imitation of "I vant to be alone", moved to another spot, totally ignoring them.



And although she constantly moved away from them when they tried to get friendly, she didn't leave, because Ms. Snooty Prissy Pants really enjoyed being the center of their attention as all snobs do of course.

Ya know, it wouldn't surprise me to know that snobbery and uppitiness might exist in the plant and animal kingdom.

Great post, it made me smile from ear to ear.

Beckie,
I was surprised when they decided to pose for me instead of immediately flying away. Little hams.

Watching her, it really looked like she thought she was much too sophisticated and glamorous to be socializing with the likes of them, lol.

I guess she can be a little snobish. After all, she was the most beautiful of all.

Marnie,
She certainly looked very regal next to those poor little plain Janes.


Jen,
I followed you by going to my dashboard, went to "blogs I'm following" clicked on add, and added your URL. I don't know how to do it any other way.

Jen,
I just added the follower to my blog, so you should be able to do it now.

Hi Farside,
Thanks for coming aboard. I like this "follower" gadget, gidget, widget, or whatever it's called. Neat ideas they come up with.
My snooty sedum picture was too light too, so I had to darken it a bit on photoshop.

oh my holy crap, you get more comments than my kid, and he's a (sorta) celebrity!

every time i read your blog i tell myself i need to get outside with a camera!

but i'm too lazy. just sittin' round, watching tv trying to get a glimpse of the kid, arguing with the other kid, and having a nice time.

i do what i want!

flydragon said...

NVAM,
Except for the part about arguing with one kid, you sound like you're enjoying yourself. About time.

How funny, I guess they just felt more comfortable with their own kind. I never get butterflies like that on my Sedum, only lots of bees, and they aren't snobby at all.

flydragon said...

MMD,
That is the first time I've noticed butterflies on the sedum. But lots of bees, all the time, and never snobby :)
