a tale of tails, tenacity, and tedium, as told by me, usually barefoot and bellowing

Thursday's Things In A Row

Cattails in a pond, stuff a pillow, eat the root,
make baskets from the shoots.
Cultivated clouds in the sky
 tell me, it's staying dry.
Wonder if the ant wives complain
about the dirt tracked in after a rain.

For some fun,
show your rows
Join Pat
for the show.

Great photo of the cattails in the pond and good to know about eating the root - what do they taste like and how would you cook em? The making of baskets I heard of - KOOL
Your cultivated clouds here we call a Mackeral Sky and in this part of the world, it means rain is coming. This is a really nice photo with sun peeking through and fence posts.
Have a great day :)

I love your comment about the ants - really made me smile. Can you imagine the arguments? :))

I didn't know you could eat cat tail roots. I had heard of eating the 'heads' before.
Learned something new! :o)

Hi There - back with some info. If you go into my previous posts, on June 11,2011, I posted on my Mackeral Sky in reference to your "Cultivated clouds in the sky tell me, it's staying dry". Also, a ring around the Sun here indicates foul weather coming - wondering if that is the same for you? Cheers n have a great day.
