Flurping

There was an awful lot of flurping going on in the garden today.  For those of you unacquainted with the horticultural term “flurping” below is a comprehensive definition:

1.  When a plant loses rigidity or collapses, taking on the demeanour of over cooked cabbage.  This could be due to lack of water or exposure to extreme heat or cold.

2.  When a gardener loses rigidity or collapses, taking on the demeanour of over cooked cabbage.  One is particularly vulnerable to this syndrome on a Friday after a long, hard week.

Above is a brugmansia in an advanced state of flurp, this photo was taken by a gardener who looks similar.
