About a week ago, I was trimming Seth’s toenails, and he insisted that I put the clippings in a specimen jar. Imagine my horror, then, as I was reading him bedtime stories this evening, glanced over, and saw this on his dresser:

Didn’t I throw those clippings away? What crazy science made them turn pink and sprout?! Also, ewwwww!!

Upon closer inspection, I realized that they were…honeysuckle stamens. Phew! Call off the haz-mat team (for today, at least).
