Infomaniac Garden Photos Event - Reminder #1


The House of
I N F O M A N I A C
10th Anniversary Garden Photos Event

is being held here rather than at The Very Mistress's this year.  Remember?

 We hope that you've all been pulling your green fingers and thumbs out, because the event of the year is only about three months away.
 Yes, I've almost settled upon when it will take place - I'm thinking the end of September-beginning of October.  That should give you plenty of time to get your luxuriant back passages (Jon), or overgrown jungle (Dinah), or Big Pink Bush™ (Ms Scarlet) in order.  Or to at least take some carefully angled photos so as to crop out all the crap - a bit like I have done, below:



 And remember, there will be a new section of the event this year: Terrifying Triffidery - a place for photos of monstrous plants or otherwise ordinary plants that have been photographed from odd angles/close up/while drunk which make them look otherworldly.  So, get inventive/within-2-metres/drinking and get that camera out!
 I may also introduce a "Guess The Plant" quiz, but we'll see if I can be bothered nearer the time...

 Oh, and unlike at The Very Mistress's, there will be no fat, naked, old men or women lurking in the undergrowth.  Sorry. 
 If we're lucky, Eddie Cibrian (or someone of his ilk) may pop by, though...

  1. I best figure out what Ill be sending in. I may have to go to mothers and use her garden to take pictures.

    1. Or, perhaps you could turn your mother's garden into a massive floral wig and send in photos of you wearing it (somehow)?

  2. Yay! A man who knows how to get the most out an old ho(e)!

    Needless to say, we have a veritable cornucopia of photos to wade through (and many more by September, no doubt)...

    1. And Eddie certainly does know how to get the most out of old hoes, as he's been seen at Maddie's, yours, and mine, previously. Perhaps less of the "old", though...

    2. If it's old holes you're after, I have plenty to offer.

    3. Wait. I'm confused. Are you offering up Norma, or yourself??

    4. PHOTOS of old holes. Isn't that what Infomaniac's all about? Aside from being a knitting blog, of course.

    5. There are so many old holes at Infomaniac that it's like a sponge!

    1. I shall expect some Tremendous Terrifying Triffidery from you then, Mago!

  4. My big pink bush bloomed and then the heat wilted it and I didn't get a picture *much wailing*. So I will try to do something monstrous instead.

    1. Oh, no! Perhaps you and Mago can encourage each other - he's started drinking already!

  5. May I submit a photo from my 2019 garden if my Terrifying Triffidery hasn't reached its full growing potential by the deadline? Our growing season starts much later than yours.

    1. You may, but I'm already reconsidering the September showings. I think the end of October/beginning of November may be more suitable. Perhaps the Terrifying Triffidery can make an appearance at Hallowe'en?

    2. So far, it's all shoots but no blossoms in the Infomaniac garden.

  6. That first pic on the left looks like something locals call Vietnamese mint (not mint- Persicaria odorata). Do you use it in cooking? I grew a lot of it or, rather, it took over half the garden! It's a hot little number, but goes well with Asian dishes.

Tickle my fancy, why don't you?
