Phallic Winter Garden Art

After a string of "serious" posts from my new garden memoir manuscript, it's time to let it all hang out, hang loose, etc with the shallow puns. 50s are forecast for the next week, and what little snow we have left will soon be gone. The winter has been dry as a bone. Spring has nearly sprung.

The snow is moderately happy, even as it melts away

Apple with landscape--where's Eve?

Of these 'Apple with Landscape' is the one which touches my humour. I'll be returning to it in my mind throughout the day and have some very cheerful hours because of it.

You must have missed me. Because you just know I'll stop by if I see 'phallic' in someone's blog title.

I really like the first one :)

Lucy--Oh now, tell me how it touches your humor...
Kyna--I thought for sure you'd be the first one to leave a comment. And looky there, you were!

Benjamin Vogt said...

Lucy--Oh wait. I just got it. Ewww.

Okay, I'm embarrassed to say I just had to check this out, especially after seeing a phallic fountain over at LifesHighway's blog. It's time for spring!

D--I am the spider! I don't mind being stuck inside, since I've been fairly productive writing wise. But I do miss strolling the garden and making discoveries each day.
