Why is it that the grass in my front yard is a lovely shade of dead but the grass in my flowerbed is green and prospering?
It’s not because I’ve been watering my flowerbed. No. I’ve been a negligent little gardener this year. I’m getting better though. I spent three hours weeding and doing the pine straw thing last night.
Tonight, I’m going to finish the pine straw, plant some lantana, dead-head my roses (no, this does not mean I’m going to serenade them with Grateful Dead tunes…though, that could be a fun science experiment) and then water and feed my plants.
And then, I’m going to have to water my yard. Of course, y’all know what’s going to happen, don’t you? The grass in my yard will continue its downward spiral toward full death, while the grass in the flowerbed that I supposedly killed with poison and pulled will defy all odds and continue to flourish. Probably, it will turn mutant and take over the world.
Maybe X-Men IV could be about my mutant grass.
Or a whole new cartoon would spring forth: Teenage Mutant Ninja Grass
Or it could turn into the latest anime craze! Grassimon: The Mutant Evolution
I have to say the thought of seeing an anime blade of grass is a little frightening. I might just be onto something…
