I'm here to tell everyone that GBBD (Garden Bloggers Bloom Day for those that don't know) is dangerous! Dangerous, I tell you!!!
No, it's not the envy of beautiful plants and flowers that bloggers all over the world flaunt on the 15th of each month that's my concern. No, this meme hosted by May Dreams Gardens can be detrimental to your health! Take care!
Donna of Gardens Eye View recently posted about distraction. But, this was not distraction that almost caused calamity. It was concentration. Full and complete concentration, on GBBD.
You see, I was so wrapped up in looking at everyone's posts, drooling over their blooms, listing plants I would like to consider for my own garden, noting everyone's remarks about their weather, checking their planting zones and whether their gardens were in early spring or early summer, when I was interrupted.
As you can see, I had a lot going on with those GBBD posts! And I was totally unprepared for the sound of someone yelling "What's on fire?". That's right! Fire! But, it wasn't fire, really. (You can relax a bit.) But there was a lot of smoke. How could I not have noticed? How could I not have seen?
Because I was concentrating on GBBD!
I had cooked a fine lunch, and so anxious was I to check out GBBD posts, that I completely forgot to turn off the burner. (OK, Donna, maybe a little distraction here.) The beans that were green were now black as soot. No moisture left in the pan. The entire kitchen flooded with smoke, and that smoke was billowing throughout the entire house.
But I never saw it. You know what I was doing.
So, beware! GBBD seems like an innocent prancing of beautiful flowers. But you must not forget - turn off the burner first!
