***Reposting the ever-popular “If your man were a plant” for your Valentine’s weekend!***
Have you ever wondered about the similarities between plants and men? Probably not! Most sane people don’t. But me, when I’m not writing, I spend a lot of time in my garden—maybe too much—and my thoughts? Well, they naturally veer in that direction and I realized men and plants have much in common!
Ever wonder, if your man were a plant, which would he be? Just for fun, I’ve listed a few.
Corn – Tall and slender with silken hair, this man provides well and yields a harvest of golden treasure. While pleasing to look at, beware: he also tends to be needy; easily blown over by the slightest of breezes—not the man for you hardier types!
Peanut - This good ole boy is made of solid stuff, on the inside and the outside, not to mention he’s filled with sweet old-fashioned appeal. For most ladies, it’s a tough combination to resist. Add the fact the kids love him and you’ve got yourself a marrying man!
Watermelon – This well-rounded fun-loving guy is always welcome at a summer barbecue and usually proves a big hit with the kids. Prone to balding, his colorful personality distracts one from notice. However, take heed. If left to his own device, this one can grow wild and get quite out of hand!
Garlic – This fellow is somewhat distant, as he spends long periods of time out of sight, only to emerge when conditions improve. Strong and distinct, he’s not for everyone, but given the right environment, he can show great depth, even mellow his pungent tone with time. A worthy peer, indeed.
Okra – Strong, of firm build, this one likes it hot and enjoys it spicy—very at home in the Big Easy, too. Generally speaking, he blends well with others, can plant himself anywhere, but caution: he can be seedy, even a bit slimy at times. More
