It means she needs to get her thyroid checked.

p.s. The bird's wing is also an arrow, pointing toward her thyroid gland.

Charles said...

Red poppy can mean pleasure or exotic passion.

Not sure if that's a poppy or a peony.

A peony can mean compassion, love and affection.

Doesn't peony sound like peeny or a wee penis?

Or maybe it's just me.

A nickel? I ain't playin' for no lousy nickel. (grin)

Only bird I see is an upside-down gull in the upper left quadrant of the um, picture.

I looked at this this morning and it made my head hurt. It still makes my head hurt. I can feel my eyes hunting over the image, trying to make sense of it.

I see feathers and ferns and pieces of sky. I see what I think is, now that you mention puffins (puffins, incidentally, happen to be my very favorite bird), part of a puffin forming the chin.

The flower? The flower is the heart, no? Or rather, the heart is a flower, a poppy. Red, red, red is the color of my true love's heart.

The whole thing strikes me as very tribal. I like it--but gosh, it makes my head hurt.

Well it is not a peony or a poppy but you are close. God I love this. And Miss Ivy there will be no “little peonies allowed at early hours of sky.”

Loudon check them at the door

Thank you for playing:)
and I so love the name Hetro Charlie. I think I am going to make it into a band.

Laurel, I LOVE how you are not playing and then play lol. Yes you found the bird. Nickel to you. Now the advance players may move on to the tribal mask and the tree. Yes there is sky and earth. It is all a secret message.

Sorry I hurt your head. Think what would happen if I actually used paint?

Right. I think I have it.

The pansy or pensée or viola means thought, or thinking of you. Red thought? Red passion? Merriment's another meaning, though I don't know where the hell that comes from.

And what's wrong with little peonies?

Radish King said...

I think it's one of those paper flowers that old pee-stained men sell at Safeway on certain holidays. They especially like it when they can pin it to your sweater.

It sure as hell looks like an Oriental Poppy.

Check this out:


The use and cultivation of the poppy dates from very remote times. The plant was well known in the time of the eminent Greek poet Homer, who speaks of the poppy juice as a dispeller of sorrows (Odyssey, IV. l. 220). According to Plinius the word poppy ( Papaver) is derived from papa, meaning pap, the standard food of infants, because poppy juice was aided to it for the purpose of inducing sleep. The ending ver is from verum, meaning true; that is, this food was the true sleep-producing substance. Opium, the inspissated juice of the poppy pods, was apparently not known in the time of Hippocrates, only the freshly expressed juice being used. It is through Diocles Karystius (350 B. C.) that we obtain the, first detailed information regarding the use of opium. Nicandros (150 B. C.) refers to the dangerous effects produced by this drug. Scribonius Largus, Dioscorides, Celsus, and Plinius gave us the first reports regarding the origin, production, and adulteration of opium. Plinius mentions the method of incising the capsules. The Arabians are said to have introduced opium into India. It appeared in Europe during the middle ages, but was apparently in little demand. It was much more favorably received in the Orient. In 1500 it constituted one of the most important export articles of Calcutta. India supplied China with large quantities of opium, at first only for medicinal purposes. It is said that the Chinese acquired the habit of smoking opium about the middle of the seventeenth century, and since then it has ever been the favorite manner of consuming it.

I would love to know what hibiscus were used for, though you can not see the stamens in this photograph also there is a naked foot in the left corner that ties to a naked sculpture which is doesn’t seem to show up either.

Now I am off to grow some poppies.

and Ivy I was referring to "little penis" which is soooooo not funny now that I have to explain it. lol

Ivy said...

Dammit, I should've put a smiley next to little peonies because I did so get it, and now I made you ruin your joke. Sorry. ;-)

Radish King said...

SUZANNE SAID HELL!!!

early hours of sky said...

Yes, I was so excited by the that she wins the whole pot. lol

Charles said...

See? STAMENS = COCKS.

early hours of sky said...
