Wallflowers, wet and wipe.

Word Imperfect has woken up her blog. She picks a word each day, and the readers invent a definition.

1. A bag of wet-rooted wallflowers for my garden: what a treat for £1.25.

2. Standing on top of Mount Ephraim on a rainy day and watching the wet watercolour on wet paper sky.

3. The cloth hisses dry as I wipe drips of gravy from the bottom of the oven.

  4. I was looking at the trees in the surface of the pool today, and thinking how much like a wet-in-wet watercolour it looked, and how funny it is that watery scenes are so well suited to a watery medium...

    I don't think I like that hissy cloth thing, I always think it will stick and burn!

  5. It goes to show that God is an artist. Probably.

    I'd only use a cotton cloth -- they're normally good for anything.
