Grow mold, bacteria and other microorganisms as well, maybe! But I know how it feels!
When my brother was young he noticed that my mother was always bemoaning the fact that she kept losing her good scissors, so he went and planted them in the garden so she would have a whole tree of scissors. No scissor tree, alas; and the good scissors were never seen again.
What a nice story! Do you think your brother really believed the scissor tree would grow? It is so sweet and kind. Unfortunately, I never believed in anything like this when I was a kid. So, I am surprised by other children who believe in scissor trees or dolls that grow, etc.
Did you honestly believe in such things as a child?
Perhaps I was a jaded elephant!
I think I was a ‘doubter’ too.
How sweet elephant, the detail you give your images is just wonderful…love this and thank you my friend for your support even though I wasn’t here for awhile…so very much appreciated…and a very wonderful year for you m
Oh, Sherri! I think of you as always being right around the corner! Hope you have a wonderful new year!
Ha ha, so lovely. . . . And to think of a tree of scissors . . .
Aaaaaaaaaw. So cutsie. 🙂
I love this crazy image – dolls growing like plants! Got to love the nutty!
