I tried showing the boys Fantasia today. They fell in love with Fantasia 2000 this summer, so I pulled out the videocassette we have of the original Fantasia--predictably, our VCR no longer works, so I logged onto Netflix and put it in our Queue...and had the most interestingly random experience.
Up popped some recommendations based on my selection of Fantasia: Fantasia 2000, of course, Dumbo, Who Framed Roger Rabbit?, Mary Poppins, 2001...? and Psycho.
I just don't get it. Granted, people who liked Fantasia may have liked Psycho as well, but I seriously don't see the connection.
This made me think of my randomness, or lack thereof. I am a fairly structured, linear person. Just look at my scrapbook pages. And even my gardens are well-structured: I group like plants to produce an impact on the viewer, I edge my beds, I weed, I have structures, I rein in spreaders...so I have a structured garden.
My garden, however, thinks otherwise.
I started noticing these flowers popping up all over my garden, far away from where they are planted:That teeny one next to the grass is a bachelor button. I couldn't figure out how it was happening until I saw a bird eating the seeds...and as my mom says, they were spitting the seeds out all over, even in the grass.
Other popular plants are my perennial geraniums:You can see it between the lamb's ear and the blue fescue.
This year the balloon flower also traveled:The rest of the balloon flowers are way on the other side of the butterfly weeds. Seriously, about 3 yards.
I am of two minds what to do: should I dig them up and give them away or replant them, or just let them stay? Some plants I let stay: the columbine, for example, never transplanted well, so I let it lie. Ditto my errant butterfly weed. But I have diligently dug up the rest and moved them, and they diligently return.
