Gardening Is A Talent Requiring Super Human Skills

Whenever a submission to entered into play in The Yard Art Game, I reply  with the understanding  that yard has been received and placed in the holding queue for future scoring (well I reply in some fashion and the reporter eventually figures out the process). If you do not receive a comment from me, please resubmit or send me a nasty note for ignoring your hard earned reporting.

Diane comments and submits: love the welcome rock.
Lifeshighway comments and acknowledges effort: They have the same gardening skills as I do!
Diane having the last word and pretty much writing my entry for me: HAaaaa the rock should say 'welcome to my pathetic garden of 3 sh*tty tomatoes'

I have nothing funnier to say. Damn you clever field reporters!

  • Squirrel with cherished nut: 1 point
  • 2 cherubs with tiny birdbath (maybe for dragonflies): 1 point
  • Frog with umbrella (which seems pointless given the condition of the crops): 1 point
  • Teeny turtle: 1 point
  • Violin playing frog: (drowning out the tomato screams): 1 point
  • Welcome rock (hmph, I still have nothing better to say): 1 point
  • 3 tomatoes plants not in the best of health: 0 points

Subtotal: 6 points

Creativity Bonus

For the fiddle playing frog and for the awesome gardening skills: 2 points

Total: 8 points

a much better gardener with a good 5 year plan:


  1. I wonder is Selina is available for our next garden club meeting?

  2. Selina is a gardener of rare talent, I think she would make a great addition to your gardening club, Tufa Girl.

    Laura, It is sad. Everyone knows you put your pitiful gardening growing attempts in the backyard. shesh amateurs.

  3. Those are also the sorriest excuse for shutters I have ever seen in my life.

  4. eventer79, obviously they will not be used when a typhoon blows in. But then again,I believe my shutters are permently afixed to my house.

    You can see what happened, they wanted shutters and they wanted those 2 carriage lights. But they wanted shutters... what to do, what to do...

  5. Maybe they have a Selina-style crop in the back, but want to appear to be garden challenged. Maybe the 3 sh*tty tomatoes are just a ruse.

  6. Whew! I'm glad I'm not the only one with whom Diane has the last word!!!
