[Twelve plant names are in the anagram (Elder, ash, hazel, aster, mango, melon, iris, pine, pea, sage, oat, lime). They are in green.]

"In June, as many as a dozen species may burst their buds on a single day.
No man can heed all of these anniversaries; no man can ignore all of them." - Aldo Leopold

Elder in sunny Jordan

A shy haze looms above sandstone.
A stern man goads an old camel on.
I rise, I pine for peaceful time -
And sagely channel an oath sublime.

2nd - David Bourke with:
"In June, as many as a dozen species may burst their buds on a single day.
No man can heed all of these anniversaries; no man can ignore all of them." - Aldo Leopold
An Annual Sniff

Oh Pansy, henna, a common daisy,
One gorgeous rosebed, opened late.
Jasmine, belladonna drives one crazy,
And her clematis I shall stimulate.

3rd - Larry Brash with:
In June, as many as a dozen species may burst their buds on a single day.
No man can heed all of these anniversaries; no man can ignore all of them." - Aldo Leopold
Us in Oz ain't at all jealous for one second.
Many Australians have designed dream gardens in bloom in all months of a year, enhanced by phenomenal species.

Dharam Khalsa with:
Sung in an 'old school' emotional ballad,
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme
Rendezvous and join best in a Chef Salad,
To enhance a fine menu in seasonal prime.

Rosie Perera with:
The crocus is a spring bloom;
Many a tulip blossoms in the summer glory;
In fall, see a fine aster head ahead;
And an Andean cold zone enjoys a lone Andean vine.

Tony Crafter with:
As you and I tend our roses,
Amazon forests are being demolished;
Man is poisoning the planet.
Clever, able, insane Man!
Anyone fancy a McDonalds?

Also planted some funny marijuana.

As annual salesman, Benjamin, said,
Releasing a really fresh non-odorous load,

Fern, jasmine, bluebonnet;
Snapdragon, chestnut;
Gladiola, azalea vine;

Ah, Bachelor's Buttons men admire,
All one column, enjoying pleasant shade;
Soon only a handful amaze and inspire,
If messages in conservation are delayed.

Adie Pena with:
Yes, I bloom no chrysanthemum,
Seen no peonies and lilies and some,
And no rose and no azalea;
Just parsley, garlic and alfalfa,
Since I don't have a green thumb!

Rosie Perera with:
This month there's pollen in the air.
As I enjoy Canada's magnolias and beans,
My bad allergies can annoy me.
I sneeze, an overloaded nose
full of mucus. (Pardon!)

Dharam Khalsa with:
I prefer golden zinnias, pansies, rose buds
To Mary Jane, Absinthe, Amontillado,
Cloudiness means annual floods,
Hence, may mean a heavy tornado!

Ellie Dent with:
Our garden's a joy, and freesias amazin'
One aged man's roses heaven to match
Redly I blush, defenceless and bloomin'
A small lonely petunia in an onion patch.

Dharam Khalsa with:
Oh, a seductive London perfume can be made,
Hailing from jasmine and tea roses,
Then shall be nonsensically sprayed
In a magazine ad, to annoy all our noses!

Paul Pan with:
Aloe, Henna! My Venus Fly Trap, a modest nibbler, inhaled seedless Asian ganja, sprouted immense roses, and ate a Cadillac 'n' one oozing onion for lunch. Ah, May!

Ellie Dent with:
'Gather ye rosebuds', as one poet said
And so seizing chances, a man may find
In profusion, an able maid, and come July,
None shall learn the lover's lament, alone.

Dharam Khalsa with:
Small stanza, "A rose is a rose is a rose",
Joined by a channel, Gertrude Stein;
And the meaning a man can only suppose:
A heavenly bloom no mind could half define.

Dharam Khalsa with
At Amazon.com's annual sale, one may note a holiday deal: "A Garden of Impressionist Verse",
joyous poems in English and French, and enhanced bluebells in art.

Dharam Khalsa with:
As modernized syllables,
"A rose by any other name",
Juliet, a hale Capulet, honors Romeo
And his offensive Montague name,
Ending in clan scandal and passion.

Christopher Sturdy with:
A One-Month Love of Non-Allergenic Small Animals

Birds and then bees
May do as they please
Just occasion a pardon
If I'm in your garden
And unleash a sneeze

Meyran Kraus with:
At Fall, a dozen maniacs end a man's huge trial for bloody slayings done on the previous Summer...
None can heed my inane lies and call those pea-brains sane!
- O.J.


1st - Tony Crafter with:
Two women were playing golf. One teed off and watched in horror as her ball headed directly towards two men playing the next hole.

Thwack! The ball hit one of the men, hard.

He immediately clasped his hands together at his groin, then clattered down to the ground, where he writhed around in agony.

The woman quickly ran over to the man, and started to apologize. 'Please let me help.' She said. 'My job is a Physical Therapy Practitioner, and I know that I could relieve the pain somewhat, if you'd just let me.'

'It doesn't matter, I'll be just fine in a few minutes,' the man replied through gritted teeth; but it was quite obvious that he was in agony, lying in the foetal position, hands clutching his groin.

As a result of her persistence, however, he at last let her help. She gently took his hands away and placed them at his side, then unhitched his pants and put both her hands inside. She administered tender and artful massage for several moments and then asked him, 'How does that feel'?

He replied: It feels great, but I still think my thumb's broken!'


An eighty-one-year old man was requested by his doctor to have a sperm-count check as one part of his health assessment. The doctor gave the man a jar and said, 'Take this home and bring along a semen sample tomorrow.'

Early the following day the man appeared again in the medic's office and returned the jar, which was as clean and empty as on the previous day!

The doctor asked what had happened, and the ill-at-ease man replied, 'Well, it was like this: First I tried with my right hand, but nothing. Then I tried using my left hand, but still nothing.

'Then I asked my wife to help. She tried with her right hand, then her left hand, still nothing. She tried with her mouth too, first with teeth in, then with her teeth out, but still nothing.

'We even asked Millie from next door, and she tried too, first with both hands, then an armpit. She even tried squeezing it between her knees, but it was still absolutely useless.'

The doctor was appalled. 'Oh, my God! You called out a female neighbour especially?'

The old man replied, 'Yep. None of us could get the jar open.'

2nd - Ellie Dent with:
Detective Sherlock Holmes, and Dr Watson went on a camping trip.

After a good meal and a couple of bottles of wine, they lay down for the night, and went to sleep.

Some hours later, Holmes awoke and nudged his faithful companion awake. "Watson, look up at the sky and tell me what you see."

Watson deliberated carefully then replied, "I see millions and millions of stars." "What does that tell you?" Holmes asked.

Watson pondered for a minute.

"Astrologically, I observe that Saturn is in Leo. ~

Astronomically, that tells me there is a big new and wondrous body of unfathomed, and unsurpassed planets.

Horologically, I deduce it is now half-past seven.

Theologically, I do think that God's all powerful, and that we who are men fated, when we're small, weak and dependent.

Finally then, meteorologically, if I'm not mistaken, I'd speculate the outlook for tomorrow, a week ahead even, is pleasant."

After a short silence, Holmes spoke:

"Watson, you idiot. Some bastard's stolen our tent."

3rd - Dharam Khalsa with:
My grandchild asked the other day, "What was your favorite fast food when you were growing up?"

"We didn't have fast foods when I was a child," I informed him. "All the food was slow."

"C'mon, but seriously," he smirked, "Where did you eat?"

"It was a little place we called a 'Home'," I smiled.

"Mom cooked every day and when Dad got home from work, we would all sit down together at the dining table and say a nice blessing before eating."


"McDonald's was a farm song," I winked. "If we didn't like a food Mother offered, we were allowed to sit there until we did like it! No, Timothy, 'Home' was never a democracy - 'Home or the highway!'"

By now, my hefty grandson was laughing so hard I was worried his rowdy guffaws would cause bodily damage. I decided not to even tell him about how we had to clean the plates and gracefully ask Dad's permission to leave the table!

Dharam Khalsa with:
Adaptation of two fables by Aesop:

The Monkey and the Camel

Once the Beasts of the green forest glen gave a splendid entertainment, at which the Monkey stood up and danced. When he had enchanted that assembly, he sat down again amidst universal applause. The leggy Camel, envious of the cheery praise bestowed on the Monkey, and desirous to divert to himself the favor of all the guests, proposed to stand up now, as well, and dance for their cheers. He moved about in such a ridiculous gawky manner that all the other guests, in a fit of angry indignation, set upon him at once with their clubs and drove him away from the assembly.

Moral of the story:
It is absurd to ape our betters.


The Monkey and the Cat

A Monkey and a Cat lived amiably together, but it was not obvious who was a greater thief. One day, the duo found some people's unattended chestnuts roasting and popping amid a campfire's sparks. "Come, Amie," the cunning Monkey said to the Cat, "We shall have a sumptuous feast tonight! Your claws are better than my fingers for pulling the goods out of ashes. We shall 'borrow' them, and will each possess half." She did dig them out patiently, one by one, burning her claws. After she had stolen all of them, she discovered, bewildered and devastated, that her sinister companion had eaten every one.

Moral of the story:
A thief cannot be trusted, even by another thief.

Adie Pena with:
A man boarded a plane in New Orleans with a humongous box of 12 frozen crabs and asked a blonde stewardess to take care of them for him. She nicely took the box and promised to put it in the crew's refrigerator.

He advised her that he was holding her personally responsible for them staying frozen, mentioned in a very haughty, kick-ass manner that he was a lawyer, and proceeded to rant at her about what would happen if she let them thaw out.

Needless to say, she was very annoyed by his behavior.


Shortly before approaching the New York gate, the unfrazzled, foxy stewardess fiddled with the intercom to announce to the entire cabin, "Would the dapper, dignified gentleman who gave me the crabs in New Orleans, please raise your hand?" Wow, not one hand went up! So she took his box of crabs home and ate them.

Ha! Two happy lessons here:

1. Your asshole lawyer rats aren't as smart as they think they are. (Hardy-har-har!)

2. Beautified "va-va-voom" blonde dames aren't as birdbrained as some folks think.

David Bourke with:
The Baptist minister, political and civil rights/social justice activist, and radio talk show host, the Reverend Alfred Charles Sharpton


Christ! A black President...*still* this hot-headed closet racist will spout jive over this-or-that African-American's slight, and "deprivation".

Sonnet 24

2nd - Tony Crafter with:
Jack worked for the Post Office, and his job was to process all mail that had illegible addresses.

One day, a letter came addressed in shaky writing to God, but with no actual address. He thought he should open it to see what it was about. The letter read:

Dear God,
I am an eighty-three-year-old widow, living on a small pension.
Yesterday somebody stole my purse. It had one hundred pounds in it, which was all the money I had until my next pension payment. This Sunday, it's Christmas Day, and I have invited two friends over for dinner. Without that money, I have nothing to buy food with and no family to turn to. You are my only hope. Can you please help me?
Sincerely, Mabel Gibbs

The postal worker was touched. He showed the letter to all his co-workers, and each one quickly dug into his, or her, wallet and came up with a few pounds.

By the time Jack made the rounds, he'd collected ninety-eight pounds, which he put into an envelope and sent to the woman. The rest of the day, all the workers felt a big, warm glow thinking of Mabel and the dinner she'd be able to share with her friends.

Christmas came and went. A few days later, another letter came from Mabel to God. All the workers gathered around while Jack opened the letter.

It read:

Dear God,
I can't thank you enough for what you did for me! Because of your gift of love, I was able to cook a glorious dinner for my friends. We had a very nice day and I told my friends about your wonderful gift.
Sincerely, Mabel Gibbs.

PS: By the way, God, there was two-pounds missing. I think it might have been those bastards at the post office.


Three Labradors were sitting in the waiting room of the vet's when they struck up a conversation.

The black Labrador turned to the chocolate Labrador and said, 'So, why are you here?'

The brown Lab replied, 'I'm a pisser. I piss on everything...the sofa, the curtains, the cat, the kids. But the final straw was last night when I pissed in the middle of my owner's bed.'

'So, what is the vet going to do?' said the first Labrador.

'Gonna cut my nuts off, I'm afraid,' came the despondent reply. 'They reckon it may calm me down. I'm devastated!'

'Yeah, that is sad,' said the black Labrador then turned to the yellow one and asked, 'Why are you here?'

The yellow Lab said, 'I'm a digger. I dig under fences, I dig up flowers and trees too! I dig just for the hell of it. When I'm inside my house, I dig up the carpet! But I went way over the line last Friday when I dug an enormous hole in my owner's new settee.'

'So what are they gonna do to you?' the black Lab inquired.

'Looks like I'm losing my nuts too', sniffed the dejected dog.

'How mean!' woofed the yellow Labrador, then turned to the black one and asked, 'Why are you here?'

'I'm a humper,' the black Labrador said... 'I'd hump anything. I'll hump the cat, a pillow, a fluffy toy, the video, wooden fence-posts, whatever. I want to hump everything I see. Yesterday, my woman owner had just got out of the shower and was bending down to dry her toes, and I just could not help myself. I hopped onto her back and started hammering away'

The yellow and chocolate Labradors exchanged sad glances; one of them said... 'So, is it nuts off for you too?'

The black Lab said...'No, I'm here to get my nails clipped!!'

As you may have noticed, most two-year-olds are trim. The secret to their success is finally available in this new miracle diet. (You may want to consult your doctor before attempting this diet.)

Breakfast: One scrambled egg, one piece of toast with grape jelly. Eat two bites of the egg, using your fingers; dump the rest on the floor. Take one bite of toast, then smear the jelly all over your face and clothes.

Lunch: Four crayons, a handful of potato chips, and a glass of milk (three sips only, then spill the rest).

Dinner: A dry stick, two dimes and a nickel, four sips of flat Sprite.

Bedtime snack: Throw a piece of toast on the kitchen floor.

Breakfast: Pick up stale toast from kitchen floor and eat it. Drink half bottle of vanilla extract or one vial of vegetable dye.

Lunch: Half tube of "Pulsating Pink" lipstick and a handful of Purina Dog Chow (any flavor). One ice cube, if desired.

Afternoon snack: Lick an all-day sucker until sticky, take outside, drop in dirt. Retrieve and continue slurping until it is fresh and clean again. Then bring inside and drop on rug.

Dinner: A rock or an uncooked bean, which should be thrust up your left nostril. Pour grape Kool-Aid on mashed potatoes; eat with spoon.


Breakfast: Two pancakes with plenty of syrup; eat one with fingers, rub in hair and shirt. Glass of milk; drink half, stuff other pancake in glass. After breakfast, pick up yesterday's sticky sucker from the rug, lick off fur, and put it on cushion of dad's best chair.

Lunch: Eat three wooden matches, peanut butter (protein) and jelly sandwich. Spit out several bites onto the kitchen floor. Pour glass of milk on the table and slurp it up.

Dinner: Dish of ice cream, handful of potato chips, orange punch. Try to laugh a little through your nose, if possible.

Breakfast: A little toothpaste, bit of soap (nontoxic), one oily olive. Pour glass of milk over bowl of cornflakes, add a half-cup of honey. Once cereal is soggy, drink sweet milk. Give gooey cereal to the dog. Drop vitamin and genuine Tonka toy down heat vent.

Lunchtime: Eat stale bread crumbs, old Dorito and dirty Cheerio off the kitchen floor and dining room carpet. Retrieve yesterday's sucker, finish it.

Dinner: Enjoy concoction of spaghetti noodles, sauce, and chocolate milk. Leave uneaten meatball on dinner plate. Try to swallow mascara tube for dessert.

(Dietitian note: A well-tolerated and nutritional weight-loss diet; no antidote is usually indicated.)

One morning, Thomas was being cleaned when Gordon arrived, covered in mud. "Hello, Gordon," said Thomas. "You need a wash."

"I don't have time," said Gordon. "Anyway, I'm not a fussy little engine like you." And he puffed away.

James was at the next station. He had just been cleaned. "Come on, Gordon," said his Driver. "Time for a wash. It'll make you feel better."

"Pah!" said Gordon, and he let off steam. Mud flew everywhere, and James was dirty again. "You are a naughty engine," said Gordon's Driver.

Gordon finished his journey and steamed into the Big Station. He was still covered in mud.

When the Fat Controller saw him, he was cross. "You can't pull the train like that! James will have to do it," he said.

At last, Gordon was getting a wash. He was so grubby that it took lots of men to clean him. "Mind my eyes," he moaned.

James was on his way to pull the Express. "Be careful," warned Gordon, "The hills are slippery."

The sea brings strong winds to the Island, so it makes it hard for the engines to climb Gordon's Hill. Today, there were wet leaves on the line as well.

As James came up to the Hill, he went faster and faster. "I can do it. I can do it," he puffed. But halfway up, he was not so sure.

His wheels began to slip on the leaves. "Help!" whistled James, as he started slipping back down the Hill.

Gordon saw everything. "I'm coming to help," he called. "I'll push from behind." Together, they reached the top, safe and sound.

When they arrived at the station, James asked the Fat Controller, "Please, Sir, can Gordon pull the coaches again now?"

"Only if you wash, Gordon, said the Fat Controller, firmly. "Thank you, Sir. I promise I will," smiled Gordon.


One day, a jowly fellow named Gordon "Glass-Eye" McHaggis awoke to find that he was Prime Minister.

So, Gordon had his yellow teeth fixed. As he beamed, he sold all the State gold reserves for ten shillings, and he raided pension funds to pay for the idle to sit on their backsides all day, and for everyone in the whole world to come and live high-on-the-hog in the "chavvy" ghettoes of Britain.

Schools deteriorated...hospitals were shut, although the N.H.S. was awash with "tsars" and managers.

The Fat Controller, Michael Martin, had to step down, for spending hundreds of thousands of pounds concealing naughty MPs' lavish expenses.

A jolly Gordon appeared on YouTube, grinning away like a maniac. Oh, how Gordon jealously, shamelessly sucked-up to President Obamessiah!

Labour suffered their worst election results in a hundred years. Why, somehow even Wales went blue! Many disloyal Ministers left like rats from a sinking ship. Following this, Gordon slammed his big clunking fist on his office table, then threw a telephone across the room.

"Can I stay in power?" asked Gordon, dejectedly. "Why, only if we have that Lisbon Treaty referendum that you promised us." said the electorate.

Anglophobe Gordon, laughing away, just said "No!". But nationwide, there were riots in the streets, and Her Majesty at last dissolved Parliament. Ultimately, there was a drawn-out General Election, and that nice dimwit David "Call Me Dave" Cameron became new Prime Minister with a mammoth majority, while the defeated Gordon was beheaded, and his ghastly New Labour thieving weasels were never heard of again. With that, there was joy and jubilation!
