Engraving Surprise

After all of the complaining that went down in the comments section of my post about Terry’s results, I figured it was time to lighten the atmosphere a little with one of our regularly scheduled “surprise” posts. Sadly, there are only a couple of these left to go, but one day last week (or was it the week before? Seriously, they’ve all started to blend into one another…) I happened to look out of the office window to see this:

Yes, Terry had “engraved” our lawn. It was very cunning of him, and it has actually made us wonder if it would be possible to kill ALL the grass in our garden in this way? I mean, we’ve killed almost everything else in the garden (yes, that is a dead plant you can see in the pot behind the “engraving”), why not the grass? You think I’m joking, but that just means you haven’t read all of my entries about how much I hate and detest gardening yet. The other option is to simply do nothing and allow the garden to return to the wild. I’m considering that one, too.

    Terry really outdid himself for your birthday this year. I hope you’re planning something big in return.

      I know, all of those “surprise” posts were just one huge, long whine-fest!:)

    My first thought was this was one of Rubin’s ironic jokes.

    Aw that is lovely. Your husband knows where the lawn is! Even tho mine walks past every morning it’s still me who has to drag the lawn mower around. I’ll show him your post… Maybe he’ll write a dedication and kill the whole area.

      Haha, I'd love to kill off the whole area – I swear that lawn has been sent to test me!

    Okay, I gotta ask: what did he use to “engrave” the lawn?

      I think just salt – seems to have worked whatever it was!

      I know! I think aliens probably visit while we're asleep. It would explain a lot about Rubin, too…

    Am I the only one who thinks a love message spelt in death is a bit "Mickey & Mallory"? ;-)

      I prefer to think of it as giving new life to salt loving bacteria in the soil :P

    Wow – what a keeper, eh? That's on par with holding a boombox above your head :) maybe even better because that dead grass ain't going anywhere!
