HIPPIES!

Yup.  AZ is absolutely correct.  Yesterday's picture showed a close-up of a rosehip.  It's what is left over from the bloom of a rose and, yes, Steve, some people make tea from them.



I guess it's time for me to realize that you gentle readers are too smart for me!

Therese also knew what it was. My wife said as a kid, they would use the inside pulp as an itching powder.

Therese, I'm so sorry. I didn't no about the anti-itch possibility until Steve straightened me out.

I guess I need to write about something simpler . . . say Republican politics.

Thérèse said...

Yes itchy itchy... I did the same as Steve's wife as a kid... my only defense against my older brothers...
No other comment, lol...

Holy cow, will I ever get this straight? Itching powder! I remember that used to be advertised in the back of comic books. I never knew you could make your own!

I think this is the first time I have ever seen this. I've had a protected life.

I'm with Jerry - I would have been clueless (and strangely terrified) with yesterday's picture :)

Back in the 60s I hung out with a hippy dude who used to eat rosehips, I never tried one. You try one Cat! Tell me what it tastes like. I always read your blog Cat; I'm just lazy about making comments. :o[

AZ - Oh, I've seen your comments a number of times here and on Steve's blog (Visitors). Always glad to have a faithful reader.

But I don't think I'll try a rosehip. I have a problem with itchiness already and from what some of my other readers tell me, I don't need to compound the problem.
