Thursday's Thing In A Row

A row of chairs with additional rows,
backs of chairs and ribbons and bows
Strings of peppers and okra, too
use for decoration or plant a few.
Grandma Anna and the boys,
this is a row that brings her joy.
Surprise, the flowers lined up like that...
they were posing just for Pat.

for rows from around the world.

Cute rhyme, and love the pictures! Can't believe the flowers all lined up like that...they MUST have been posing!

Came for the rows from Pat's place... and you've shared some fun ones today that gave you inspiration for a poem to boot! Noticed the three handsome horses in a row on your header, too. I also surfed around your blog, read your other pages, and heavens, we couldn't be more ostensibly different! :-D But as sister bloggers we have a common bond... and I have yet to "meet" a blogger that plays these memes with whom I didn't feel I could have a civilized, respectful conversation, even if our worldviews and opinions were worlds apart. Cheers!

I never knew you could hang okra like that. I thought you only harvested the pods and put the rest in the compost pile.

Hope you all have a good Thursday!

I love the flowers lined up in a row. They look so cheerful and sunny. Just what a person needs to see on an autumn night. I forgot what these are called. It completely escapes my memory. We used to have them in the garden. Refresh my mind, will you? XOX

Wonderful rows! Love the peppers and okra! Flowers are lovely and all lined up for the perfect shot! Your rhyme...clever as always! =)

I remembered seeing okra pods hanging at my grandmothers house years ago. I had forgotten all about that until I saw your photo.

I love all your things in a row. Those pretty cosmos do appear to be posing just for this meme.
