YT--you have the internet and you are obviously without a doubt very intelligent---those of us who have absolutely no knowledge of electonic gadgets could level the "same complaint" when anyone posts pictures of objects that noone is familiar with---like electronic devices, gadgets, toys, etc-- to the best of my ability I will show it to my engineer husband who just looks at me and says he has no idea and then I go to the internet and will try a search---never do I or others even come close most of the time but we try. Come on---don't give up-- just because this poor flower can't change a TV program to watch football doesn't mean you can't guess. :):):) Ok you know by now that I'm teasing.....PS---I don't think most of us in the states know what this flower is either.......I didn't but I liked the name and it's a gorgeous plant----so I posted it.

Not sure of the photo, but I began this:

Well I saw the thing comin' out of the sky
It had the one long horn, one big eye
I commenced to shakin' and I said "ooh-eee"
It looks like a purple eater to me

It was a one-eyed, one-horned, flyin' purple people eater
(One-eyed, one-horned, flyin' purple people eater)
A one-eyed, one-horned, flyin' purple people eater
Sure looks strange to me (One eye?)

Well he came down to earth and he lit in a tree
I said Mr. Purple People Eater, don't eat me
I heard him say in a voice so gruff
I wouldn't eat you cuz you're so tough

It was a one-eyed, one-horned, flyin' purple people eater
One-eyed, one-horned flyin' purple people eater
One-eyed, one-horned, flyin' purple people eater
Sure looks strange to me (One horn?)

I said Mr. Purple People Eater, what's your line
He said it's eatin' purple people and it sure is fine
But that's not the reason that I came to land
I wanna get a job in a rock and roll band

Well bless my soul, rock and roll, flyin' purple people eater
Pigeon-toed, undergrowed, flyin' purple people eater
(We wear short shorts)
Flyin' purple people eater
Sure looks strange to me

And then he swung from the tree and he lit on the ground
He started to rock, really rockin' around
It was a crazy ditty with a swingin' tune
Sing a boop boop aboopa lopa lum bam boom

Well bless my soul, rock and roll, flyin' purple people eater
Pigeon-toed, undergrowed, flyin' purple people eater
I like short shorts
Flyin' little people eater
Sure looks strange to me (Purple People?)

And then he went on his way, and then what do ya know
I saw him last night on a TV show
He was blowing it out, a'really knockin' em dead
Playin' rock and roll music through the horn in his head

(clarinet solo)

Tequila

in northeastern US but not far, far north---as far south as Tennessee--I even read where it has been found in small parts of northern Texas--it's found in woods

Bursting Hearts is also known as the strawberry bush or running strawberry plant---Eunoymous americanus--come September the flower bursts open and reveals 4 red berries--hence the name "busting hearts with love" deer and other animals can eat it but it's considered a "run to the toilet experience" for humans

Post us a good one!!!!!!!
