Procrastination is totally a good thing. You always have something to do tomorrow, plus you have nothing to do today.
~Some random Internet meme I found while procrastinating on social media.
Shhh….don’t tell anyone…I’m supposed to be working on an article due in a couple of days.
But I’m thinking about Garden Horror instead. (See yesterday’s post if you are blinking at the screen and thinking I’ve finally totally lost it).
So, ahem, I thought of a few titles for as-yet-unwritten Garden Horror novels (which also ties into yesterday’s post – please do go check it out if you haven’t already). Of course, these may sound eerily (see what I did there?) familiar to some of you:
The Slug Also Rises
Close Encounters of the Larval Kind
The Drawing of the Tree
The Turn of the Yew
The Tell-Tale Bark
The Call of Kudzu
Okay, I must be getting back to work…the ball’s in your court. What Garden Horror titles can you add to my list? Make me laugh – the article I’m at this very moment feverishly churning out at a breathtaking rate of speed is about plant propagation, and we all know how very unfunny that topic is.
Oh, I do like that procrastination quote. So tempting.
I adhere to it frequently (daily?)…. 😉
Oh, that’s a GOOD one!
Too funny! My favorite is “The Slug Also Rises” Certainly the story at the little house in the big woods.
Here, too! Truly a horror story….
The Gardener Who Knew Too Much 🙂
Ooooh I love that!
I like the mood you’re in. And those are great titles! I will walk around my unruly garden and think of something…
There were so many imaginative comments – so fun!
Somehow, this still doesn’t romanticize scrubbing the toilets.
Gone with the hailstorm.
The aphids of the Baskervilles.
Those are absolutely awesome! Gone With the Hailstorm describes my last few evenings here in Calgary…we have had some insane weather!
LOL! Okay, I’m going to give this a go. How about these… Plant Cemetary, War of the Weeds, The Phantom of the Compost Heap, Return of the Thistles… Okay, not brilliant, but here is something guaranteed to make you smile, and vaguely connected to your article too, so you can watch without feeling guilty! https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=0cEi8smmG7k
Too awesome! Plant Cemetery is the sequel to Gone with the Hailstorm, I think…. 😉 And I thoroughly enjoyed the video!
Think it over you find the answer
Beet the Devil (rabbits being spawn of Satan).
That is fantastic! And definitely horrific!
I don’t know which title I like the best, they are all wonderful. Can’t stop laughing, I have to go back and read the other post.
Everyone is so creative – I really had fun with this!
You must’ve had such fun with this! If I come up with anything worthy, I’ll let you know!
Definitely got me laughing, that’s for sure!
The Spy who Shrubbed Me. About a gardening secret agent.
Grooooovy! I’d read that, for sure….
How about (cue scary music)… “Nightmare on Elm” and “Don’t Go in the Garden Shed” and Hitchcock’s classic “The Weeds”.
My funny bone has been properly tickled here. Loved the video that Cathy popped into her comment as well. I can think of nothing at this moment as I’m not properly awake yet. Yours are brilliant! 🙂
I’m glad you enjoyed! I loved that video Cathy sent as well!
Sheryl, what a fun post. I love all your titles and those shared by your readers.
Dial M for Mud Daubers
Strangers on a Wheelbarrow
The Snail Who Knew Too Mulch
OH these are absolutely fantastic! So creative! I would totally read The Snail Who Knew Too Mulch…. And Strangers on a Wheelbarrow could be really riveting! 😉
The Fungus Awaits
As the Leaves Fall
The Mold Within
What a fun post, with such great comments!
The Fungus Awaits and The Mold Within…that’s what is happening here with all the rain we’re having! Love these!
