Running Through the Garden

No No. The pic right here is not a Monet or Van Gogh. Actually, it is a garden that is all indoors. At least for this last weekend.

Yesterday we went to the annual Home & Garden Show.

Granted, we didn't pay for these tickets. Friends of ours had comps and even they wouldn't couldn't go, so they were offered to us. It was a cold and snowy day, so what the hell we went. ...and then got hit for fuckin' $8 for parking!

Let's just say, we didn't get our $8 worth.

What you see above was almost the only real garden. There were a few displays of pergolas, water features and the likes. Then there were things like stone walks, windows replacements and gutter covers. Oh and hot tubs and outdoor furniture. (click image to enlarge)

Seriously, who would ever thing placing larger than life ants on their display was a good idea?

After that, the place was filled up with even more crap: homemade candies, incense, jewelry, hand-crafted wooden model airplanes, greyhound adoption, Sham-Wows and imitation Sham-Wows.

Home & Garden? Je think not! Yes you can put all these things IN a home, but c''s a stretch at best.

Oh oh oh oh....and there is this: (you must click on image you enlarge. I mean - you must!)

WTF ????

I love the suspended-animation hair head. The "guy" styling her hair was not that amused by me taking her picture. I'll let you decide whom I mean by "her".

Again - Home & Garden?

Oh - and for no real good reason, there is this: An indoor ferris wheel.

I know I can't get that in my home!

We went last year and had pretty much the same reaction. I remember they were doing teeth whitening and thought - wtf does this have to do with the home or the garden?

I had a dream about tornwordo the other night. I'm starting up a dog/kid/reading therapy program and the name "tornwordo" just fits.

Good luck with that. I've never had any success getting my dogs to read.
