Little Terrace of Horrors / Pequeña Terraza de los Horrores

La versión español está después de la versión inglés.

We haven’t visited the terrace for a while. Well, San Geraldo and I do so daily but I haven’t taken you with us for a long time. The Cylindrical African Spear is in all its fragrant glory once again, some cacti are in bloom, and the amaryllis has come back to life with its first flower of the season. As the bud started to open, it reminded me of Audrey 2, the carnivorous plant from Little Shop of Horrors.

Little Shop of Horrors was originally a non-musical 1960 film. An unknown actor, Jack Nicholson, played a nerdy masochistic dental patient.


No hemos visitado la terraza por un tiempo. Bueno, San Geraldo y yo lo hacemos a diario, pero no te hemos llevado con nosotros por mucho tiempo. La lanza africana cilíndrica está en todo su esplendor glorioso una vez más, algunos cactus están en flor, y la amarilis ha vuelto a la vida con su primera flor de la temporada. Cuando el capullo comenzó a abrirse, me recordó a Audrey 2, la planta carnivora de La Pequeña Tienda de los Horrores.

La Pequeña Tienda de Los Horrores fue originalmente una película no musical en 1960. Un actor desconocido, Jack Nicholson, interpretó a un paciente dental empollón masoquista.

      We hardly spend any time sitting out there, but keep talking about how we need to. At least I’m out there all the time, enjoying the plants and the view. The cats LIVE out there during the day.

  1. Don’t be messin’ with no mean green mother from outer space, if you know what’s good for you! Your terrace is beautiful. It looks so peaceful .

    1. Deedles;
      The terrace really can be paradise. We need to find ways to spend more time just lounging out there.

    1. Parsnip:
      That’s because the unhappy ones are gone! Farmer Jerry is constantly dealing with plant scale and other problems. But it’s worth the trouble.

    1. Debra:
      I’ve heard people say the desert is barren and dead. I say they’re just not looking closely.

    1. Mistress Maddie:
      We don’t spend enough time doing just that. I always talk about sitting out there with my iPad. Instead, I sit at the computer in my office.

    1. Wilma:
      Yes, I am constantly making blood sacrifices… unintentionally. Jerry, however, sits there with Q-Tips cleaning scale off the cacti!

    1. Walt the Fourth:
      We still marvel at the change in our apartment since we installed that glass curtain.

  2. I’m not saying it’s better necessarily, but the 1960 version of Little Shop of Horrors is much, much darker, and without much in the way of a moral other than to be laugh out loud funny, than the 1980s musical remake.

    Fortunately, you’ve survived your own plants, or else you couldn’t have posted this.

    1. Kirk:
      I also love the 1960s version and I agree with your assessment. I usually prefer musicals versions, but that Roger Corman camp is priceless.

Please share your thoughts...
