Mandy, I knew what you meant, but you used it the wrong way. LOLOL ;-)
And speaking of online dictionaries, I tried out at least 12 of them in the past and my favorite one is the one I used- thefreedictionary.com.
I'm trying to respond to all the comments before I go offline but I seem to get farther and farther behind. LOL
I'm going to check out your dictionary later on (after I take a nap), and knowing you, it's a great one.
Perhaps I should have said "You sussed me" or "I've been sussed" meaning you found out/ discovered/knew that the poem wasn't originally all mine -I'd simply amended the original version. I hope this helps - however on googling it myself I can see why you're confused - it's British slang!! The best I can come up with is here:
Sussed is slang for knowledgeable, well-informed.
Sussed is British slang for found out, discovered.
Suss - If you heard someone saying they had you sussed they would mean that they had you figured out! If you were going to suss out something it would mean the same thing.
You're obviously well up on "referencing" !!! :))
And I'm confused! LOL!
tr.v. sussed, suss·ing, suss·es Slang
1. To infer or discover; figure out: "I think I'm good at sussing out what's going on" (Ry Cooder).
2. To size up; study: "Suss out the designers in whom you are interested" (Lucia van der Post).
[Probably short for suspect.]

LOL - I'm sussed!!
That's a lovely little poem, Mandy. Somehow, parts of it sound vaguely familiar. ;-)
Wendy, Wendy, quite creative
How doth your garden fare
With starry flowers and slender stems
and pretty maids all in a square!!
Yes, I've got brilliant deductive reasoning, Ardy. LOL!
Now you've got it!!!
OK, Ardy, I just checked that one out...and I'd already read that one again when I first read your comment here. The bottom line is that you like both. ;-)
Laughing, OK, Ardy, I'll check out my comment from then. I'm almost afraid to look. LOL
I'm so glad you enjoyed this, whatnauts. :-)
Super duper puzzle, Ms Wendy - thanks much.
Wendy, Check out Tuesday's flower (Wendy13) from two days ago and your comment which made me think that you think I can't love pastels and bright blue both. But I can too!!!!
OK, Ardy, I located the puzzle where you made a comment that first surprised me. The pastel flowers are so far different from the bright blue ones...
Here's what you had said, "Wendy, I LOVE these. They are so delicate and sweet. What a treasure. Beautiful, delightful and all the things Pat said. Thank you. For me this is the best of the week of your puzzles."
Ardy, I'll have to check back and see which puzzle you're referring to re the blue flower. And I know how much you love the blue ones so I'm baffled.
Pat, I love this one too...and I admit I had lots of fun creating it. It was a learning experience because I tried something new...and will have to improve on the new thing...but I'm happy with it anyway.
Oh, my--I just LOOOOOOVE this one! The flowers have different shapes and stems and leaves and tilt different ways, and all that attention to detail makes it so special! And the colors are fabulous! A total winner!!!!!!!!!
Neat variation on the blocks of color types of puzzles that I like. This was actually harder than I had thought it would be. Love the blue in next to the bottom row and 2nd from right. Thanks, Wendy. How come you were surprised a couple of days ago when I liked the blue flower you posted? Haven't I always loved the blue ......"things?"
