Well That’s Disappointing

October 4th, 2012 Posted in ramblings

My mom bought a tree the other day and had it planted in their front yard.  Well, I should clarify that it looks like a tree the way that Charlie Brown’s Christmas tree looks like a tree – it’s a stick with a few leaves on it.  Seriously.

So, the wife and I are looking at it and she decides to do a tree growing dance while I stand there and wave my arms saying “crescendo!”.

The tree didn’t get one bit bigger.

Those Little Einsteins are a bunch of liars.

    We just planted a Southern Red Oak in the front yard. Yeah, your description fits my tree pretty much dead on.

    I don’t have to be naked when I do the dance do I? Because my neighbors will not be amused.

    You never know, Six. You could learn something about your neighbors lifestyle that you never wanted to know.

    The poor Brisbane Box we got from the City to replace a sap-sick Monterey Pine that had to removed was planted by our Zombie Gardeners in a pile of bay-mud, sawdust and bark-duff and I keep watering it but it looks like it’s gonna die…

    um… boxes are made FROM trees, they don’t grow into trees. Maybe that’s the problem

    I gave it three boxes of water and it’s still droopy!
