. . 'I am fond of pigs. Dogs look up to us. Cats look down on us. Pigs treat us as equals.' (Winston Churchill) . . 'Pigs might fly' is an adynaton. Adynata were invented by the Greeks as, ' figures of speech where a highly improbable situation is used for emphasis.' Other examples include: . Hell freezing over.. The moon turning to green cheese... Fish climbing poplar trees Bamboo blossoming... . . . . . Thanks so much @chelseatextiles for this exquisite loveliness. There's more chance of a crawfish whistling on a mountain than me producing needlework like this...! . . . Here's to a soothing Sunday make time for hush and lull. xx

    Did you know that bamboo does in fact blossom? Well, flower anyway - bamboo is a grass. Flowering is often its final act before dying. And it’s unpredictable - it waits for exactly the right conditions, which may not occur for over 100 years - which is why most people think bamboo does not flower. Because it’s fertilization method is based on wind, all plants of a variety in an area will flower together. And then mostly die. The good news is that they leave seed behind which grows into the next generation. A tip for gardeners who are using tall bamboos to screen out neighbors is to plant at least two different varieties in alternating clumps along the fence line, so if one variety flowers and dies, there’s a good chance that the other/s will not and will remain to provide some continuing privacy until you can establish replacements. Can’t help you with flying pigs πŸ– though!

    A Pig with Wings is a Sight to See / Do you think he can fly to the Sea? / Or maybe to perch in a leafy oak / And survey from above his perfect poke 🐷Love your post which inspired my extemporaneous poetic flight to fancy🐷
