Gardening for Real People, Part V

An important part of garden maintenance is "Dead Heading" your roses:



(Although it is hard to capture in a photo, it is highly recommended that one douse oneself in patchouly oil before performing this operation.)

  1. This had me cracking up. I will say that you do look genuinely stoned in this picture. But that's illegal, so you don't do that.

    Just a little aside, I used to have a girlfriend that would always buy me patchouly oil soap because she absolutely loved the scent (she was kinda like a modern hippy). Everywhere I'd go people would be like, "ugh, what's that smell?". Ah, the things I do for a little a lovin'.

    2. Then you should be "spinning". But then, you probably don't belong to the _Church of Unlimited Devotion_.

  3. I'm curious, were you actually listening to the Grateful Dead while gardening? Knowing you, you probably were.

    1. That reminds me of a photo that I took of a windmill farm in Kansas (seriously, they're EVERYWHERE out there). I posted it with the caption, "this is actually a video", because in real life they really weren't spinning. I probably should have taken video footage to capture that, but oh well.
