Plants, Smarter Than We Think

Another day of thunderstorms and heat.I 'm stuffed up with allergies. Haven't had that happen in ages. Darn pollen and high winds ! Yet I can't get mad at plants because, they might know what I'm thinking and feeling.

According to scientists at McMaster University, right here in Hamilton , plants
recognize their kin and are even nice to them. Read about it here

This is a response that besides plants, only humans have.

I forgot to mention I had a minor black out on Sunday. I put my head back to taste some rain drops and blacked out, my legs gave out . Luckily I was leaning against a railing and it was very brief so I didn't fall down. Only mentioning it because I have to see the neurologist next Monday.

I have removed a couple of MS blogs from my links . When I tried to access them the last couple of days, I got a message that I wasn't invited to read them, even though I have before. Didn't know blogging was like the country club.

Now I think I'll go water my plants and have a little chat with them. I wonder if they talk about me ?

How odd that the links don't work any longer - I wonder if they were getting spammed or something like that?

Sorry to hear that you had a black out, hopefully the neuro will be able to reassure you that it is not the MS, and you were just having a sugar low or something!

Hi! Mima
Yeah it may have been too much heat.
Not sure what's up with the links
Blogger can be a pain sometimes.

I have been locked out of blogs, the blog world is much like school---cliques, secret emails passed around, really an ugly side to blogging. I ignore it. Kids will be kids. You are always welcome at my place.
