Well, it appears that I caused quite a stir on Facebook yesterday. I had Twittered about the Spring flowers popping up all over my yard. Only, I guess some people don't realize that a certain kind of lily is also referred to as a "Naked Lady."
I have my Twitters feed directly into my Facebook account. And the problem with that is on Twitter, you only have 140 characters in which to say what you want. Uh...that's about 1 sentence, maybe two if you're succinct.
So anyway, because I only had so many characters to mention the flowers, I didn't go into great detail.
I typed something to the effect of, "I have a ton of Naked Ladies coming up in my yard! I am so glad to see signs of Spring." Or something similar.
Well apparently most people have never heard of Naked Ladies---the flower.
So you could only imagine the slew of responses I got from people. Some asking me to clarify (women), and others asking for the precise address (men) and others (avid garneners) sending links to the FLOWER I was referring to because they could see that I was drowning in the siege of a huge (but hilarious) misunderstanding.
Sigh....I have GOT to remember the REAL SCIENTIFIC name of these flowers from now on...which is Amaryllis belladona...
Although that name's not quite as fun as Naked Ladies....LOLOLOL!
