Put your pollen tube to work!

Ah, the good old days. We didn't need no stinking Xbox 360s when I was growing up. We played jacks with rocks, "fished" for sandbugs with strands of hair and challenged each other to flame tree war! The best stamen came from flame tree flower buds. The best strategy to win was to breath on it like you would a pair of dice and then try to pull the other guy's anther off. Talk about low cost entertainment! Yeah Der, I know, you beat me. So what, the flower looks better on me - so there. Any way we could market this game Walt?

How many things can you do with a flame tree flower?

Hi Boni,

Are there any summer activities for kids going on at GES? Reading camp? Crafts camp? Our kids spent a few days with the programs last summer, but I think it was at one of the southern schools.

ROFL I used to do that! Wow... not to mention chasing down a classmate and sticking him in the face with a sticky bird or whatever those thorny little weeds are called. lol very nice pic :D

Dave: we are completely out of money. Even our summer library program was cancelled. If you find something, let me know and I'll do the same.
Lex: I totally forgot about the sticky birds. Remember throwing them at each other just to see how many we could get on each other's pants? Too funny.

Thanks! I'll let you know if I come across anything.

Pants? lol I wish that were true. Unfortunately, boys will be boys and the next thing you know you're pulling a stem of sticky birds off your face with a few of the thorny seeds still deeply imbeded.

But yeah those were the good days =) Haha not to mention the games we play with girls... the kind that would have ppl looking at our folks weird if we were to play them these days :P
