I hope you'll forgive me but I was out most of yesterday afternoon looking at genitals. Hell, I wasn't just idly gazing--I was pointing, staring, and even taking pictures.

When you think about it, it's a little odd that when we look at human genitals we get all sorts of odd feelings--both good and bad--but when we look at the genitals of a plant, almost without exception we only get good feelings.

How can you look at the lovely purple folds over there to the left without thinking, or even saying, "awwww"? You can't. Plant genitals are just too damn pretty to avoid that sorta thing.

Of course the purple color isn't very human looking but the plants above and below, using a more pinkish palatte, might remind you more of the genitals of another species--but if so, don't say anything. I'm trying to keep a "G" rating here.
Did you notice that inchworm on the pansies? Or the aphid? It's amazing how many things can grow on a genital, isn't it?

Pistols and stamen. I pretty much stayed with zoology when I was in college and only took the one required course in botany so my knowledge of these type of genitals are scanty but many biologists base their entire careers on studying them. Makes you wonder a little if there's some displacement going on, huh? Or is that too Freudian?

Anyway, I hope you enjoy looking at the semi-private parts of these plants. I'll probably post a few more pictures of the flowers I was looking at this weekend in the next few days. No more closeups though. The heart can only take so much exposure to genitals--I don't want to stress anyone out too much.

Holy crap! That is one attention-getting post title you have there! I will never look at flowers the same way again. *blushes*

Back again from Michele's!

I'd be interested to hear how the search engines respond to the wording of this entry. Your traffic will likely see a bit of a spike from porn-seekers.

Seriously, you don't need forgiveness at all. Thanks, more like it. Beautiful images and thoughts - which is par for the course for you.

Makes me want to go out and capture similarly pretty scenes from my corner of the world. Thank you for the inspiration.
You didn't come visit me, so I thought I would come visit you. I always like getting a good look at some genitals.

I am incredibly jealous. Every time I try taking a nice picture of some flowers, as you have done very well here, it never turns out. How do you do it? :)

Michele sent me.

I agree---that was a very attention getting title...!!!! I must say, I did a good bit of blushing even though we were talking about flowers.

Gorgeous genitals David :)

My first thoughts were the same as Karen and Carmi! The search engines will have a field day with it!

I love the pics, though, they are beautiful and hopeful. Have a great week.

:-0 WHAT!? Purrty pictures Dave. Mom was in your neck of the woods this weekend. She even drove right past Childress' vinyards.

Nice genitals Dave! I love this time of year!

they all look gorgeous!

Have to say I love the pics of your genitals. ;-)

I've always wondered similarly about people who devote their life to mushrooms. They seem preoccupied with the organs than the majority of veins that make up the plant-being.

Good Day, My Compadres:

I am the Quest Master. I bear ill tidings: the Northern Chalice of Blog Wisdom has been lost. You have been handpicked to join the quest to recover the Northern Chalice.

We will search far and wide. We will leave no corner of the blogosphere unturned. And we will be victorious in our dual quest for blog traffic and the return of the great Northern Chalice.

The names of your Blog Titles have been scrambled into anagrams. Once a day you will receive an email from me, The Quest Master, informing you that a clue, in the form of a letter of the alphabet, has been found.

The clue, in the form of a letter, will be placed in a current day comment in one of your blogs as listed under chosen blogs below. To find the clue, you will need to visit every blog in the list and search the comments for a post from me, The Quest Master. Again, I emphasize, the comment will be placed on the most current post of the blog at the time so there will be no need in searching through dozens of posts and comments. You may however, need to visit every blog on the list if you are unlucky enough to find the clue right away.

Find the clue and record the letter somewhere safe. The Witch of the Lesser Southern Isles will be attempting to steal your clues, so guard them carefully.

You will be notified by email when the next clue has been placed. As soon as possible after this email notification, search for the next clue.

As you collect letters, you will attempt to unscramble them. The letters will ultimately reveal the name of one of the participating blogs below.

Successfully unscramble the name of the blog, and you will recover the Northern Chalice of Blog Wisdom and receive all appropriate honors and riches.

1. the first compadre to successfully unscramble the blog name to find the North Chalice of Wisdom will win 250 Blog Explosion Credits AND A $50 Gift Package from Mystickal Incense and More.

2. Five 2nd Place prizes of 50 Blog Explosion Credits will be randomly awarded to those who participate on a daily basis.

3. Each compadre may only make ONE guess per day.

4. All guesses must be made by email to me, the Quest Master, at

5. Anyone who can figure out who I, the Quest Master, am will receive an additional prize.

6. The Quest will begin with the revelation of the first clue at 12:00 Noon Eastern Daylight Time, and will end when the first correct guess has been made and submitted to me, the Quest Master.

7. If you wish not to participate, you have until Noon on Wednesday, Eastern Daylight time to request to be removed from this quest.

If you've ever seen the tacky 80's movie Grease 2 you'll know a fabulously dreadful song about pistols, stamens and reproduction. It's worth a look.

You know I just stopped in to say thanks for visiting and was greeted so wonderfully with genitals. I must thank you because I happen to love all genitals and yours were especially pretty!
utenzi said…
I'm not participating in that game mentioned three posts above but decided to let it through the filter just in case anyone else looking for clues needs that info.

Hi Yaeli! Nice to see you around. You've been awful quiet lately. Does having a boyfriend always cause this? LOL

Jade, thanks for the compliment. I wish mine were as pretty as a flower, but alas it just isn't so.
