All right, enough of this depressing shit...

Look at me! 3 posts in a month! Apparently, all I require for more posting is...oh, never mind.

For your viewing pleasure: the singed trees that my husband created with his unusual spring clean up methods

2/3 of a tree - it used to look like the ones on the left

I grew these two trees from little sticks

What? You don't see a second tree? Look by the blue bird.

Here's what's left

Trees are very resilient...


  1. Oh my G-d -- the tree totally disappears in that picture. I had to scroll back up then to see it because I had sort of seen a small lump on the ground.

    These are the sorts of pictures I'd whip out any time the person starts a sentence, "I have a good idea..."

  2. Thank goodness for the blue bird marker...

  3. Aw, poor little tree. It'll bounce back.

  4. Wow. I have black fingers (as opposed to green), every plant I've ever had died (yet all pets and significant relationships thrive)( good thing I am not an alcoholic, or I would have been stuck with wilting plants all my life). But it takes more than black fingers to do that! I am impressed.

    But your husband must keep you very entertained, doesn't he? :-) I bet you are longing to get bored once in a while.

  5. Good Lord. I am... stunned. Lost for words. The tree... is... Oh my.

  6. Hurray, more posts!

    Ne'er a dull moment with your husband, I am thinking?

  7. I don't mean to laugh, but this is kinda funny (you know, because your house didn't burn down or anything). But I do have a question: What the hell is "ornamental grass?" Is that PC for weeds?

    1. The first and second pictures have ornamental grass in them - it's the stuff that looks like straw. Maiden grass, fescues, blah, blah, blah. But the bane of my existence, that my husband keeps dividing and replanting all over the place is pampas grass. Native prairie (and desert) grasses that grow in clumps - a big favorite in midwestern landscaping. Also, weeds.
