Cinderella story...outta nowhere...a former greenskeeper...

(a.k.a. Weekly Winners - for more, visit Sarcastic Mom)

stems
Thursday I pulled into the driveway to find this, all alongside my house.

broken
Hmmm...mysterious.

discarded
"We were golfing, Mommy."

untouched
"We didn't break ALL of 'em. There's four left."

Huh. Thanks kids. ;-)

The ones left are beautiful. I've already killed my tulips.

sorry about the flowers ... but excellent use of a Caddyshack quote, as a title no less! I appreciate that : )

My friend's husband was just complaining on FB last night about how he was at a restaurant, and when someone at his table told the waitress, "Orange whip? Orange whip? Three orange whips!" , she totally didn't get it. It's up to us to keep Caddyshack and Blues Brothers alive for the younger generations : )

I think I would have killed someone. I love my flowers too much. :)

At least they did safe some for you.

Sometimes one just has to sacrifice the tulips, huh? Oh, and I voted for ya, too. Sweet snaps!

merrymishaps said...

Too funny. Your poor tulips!

Miss Grace said...

The flowers are lovely.

hip chick said...

Well...I'm sure they were lovely while they lasted. And, tulips will go by anyway...

LceeL said...

Oh My. Time to buy some plastic balls - otherwise the boys are going to give golf a bad name.

Jenni Jiggety said...

Oh so pretty...but nothing good lasts forever, right?

Green Girl in Wisconsin said...

Ummmm...at least they're playing outside?
Yeah, I got nothing. I'd break my kids' golf clubs over my knee if they did that to my tulips.

Tom said...

Didn't Jayson just get them? Awwww :((((

Roger said...

I can't believe no one mentioned what an excellent use of a Caddyshack quote, you have there! Perfect. I guess I'm just showing my age.
