Pretty Flowers, Taylor Swift, Killer Whales

Some of the stores around here have started selling flower seeds.

It’s kind of early, but I may pick up some zinnia seeds. I don’t have a garden area right now so even if Spring arrived early—I mean, really early—I wouldn’t have a place to plant the seeds. But Spring is a while away and I’m hoping that by the time the warm weather comes I will have a place to plant some flowers.

Zinnias are my favorite colorful flower. Marigolds bloom longer, but zinnias have beautiful colors.

Today’s post is kind of convoluted in a pointless way, but I’m going to put it up anyway just because it makes me smile.

It goes like this:

I was walking through a nearby store and saw them selling flower seeds. That made me think of the little garden space I used to have. That made me think of the posts I’ve done about gardening and—for some reason—I’ve come to associate Taylor Swift with my old garden just because, I think, I randomly juxtaposed Taylor Swift and gardening once.

Doesn’t she look happy about it.

Now I’m stuck thinking about her when I think about gardening.

Even though I’ve never actually heard a Taylor Swift song. I kind of hate fake country music to begin with so I was not inclined to listen to her. And one time I did try to listen to her sing—when she did a duet with Stevie Nicks—but Taylor Swift’s voice sounded so, ummm, odd that I couldn’t listen.

But I got to thinking about her because of the flower seeds on sale at the store.

Then, this afternoon when I was looking around the net I stopped in at a scuba diving and shark diving website I look in on now and then and they had a link to a video that was a parody of some Taylor Swift song.

Taylor Swift synchronicity.

Now, I’ve never heard the Swifty song the parody is based on, but the parody is pretty funny. So even though I think I’ve been linking too often to videos, I’m going to link to this one because it’s part of this Taylor Swift diptych.

Diptych used like that sounds like a bad word. Sounds like a Russian curse word. But it’s not.

So, here’s the Taylor Swift parody and I’ll try to have something more substantial for tomorrow. And I’m going to try to stay away from video links for a while, too.
