    Default Lawn VS jungle garden

    When I bought a house back in 2004 it had a nice little lawn in the back. Relatives convinced me to turn it into a REAL GARDEN with shrubbery and also bamboo 'to fill the garden nicely'

    after the first year it was a persistent disaster lol. I had the bamboo dug out twice and put into underground plastic pots to attempt to stop it from spreading all through the garden. it was only a temporary help. I've been throwing boiling water etc on top of the bamboo close to the terrace. this morning I was pruning the shrubbery and bamboo as I'm apt to whenever I get particlarly angry with my JUNGLE GARDEN. typically the remains lie around in the garden for two months or more since I don't own a car

    should have stuck with the lawn, right? btw I never use the garden, it's the animals' domain. Right now I just have a dog but I used to have rabbits etc in there as well

    I have no idea why I'm posting this. Online therapy much?

    Bamboo is for the jungle not a yard.

    You can’t control it.

    A nice lawn with some shrubs and maybe a flower bed or small vegetable garden.

    A lot of suburu drivers want jungle gardens.

    I'm trying to picture bamboo growing in Belgium's hot, sticky climate LOL.

    Several years back I bought this hardcover book as a Christmas gift for a relative who is very deep into gardening.

    https://the189.com/photography/garde...alerie-finnis/

    The photography of these elaborate British estate gardens, their dogs, and back stories was a huge hit.
    Plus the bottle of nice wine or liquor that accompanied the gift.

    I found that that's the perfect formula when gift giving. Something to drink + read, or leave on a coffee table or book shelf. No one needs anymore Chinese made electronic trinkets.

    I imagine everyone hoping that you don't get them in your family's Secret Santa gift swap

    "oh great, another bargain bin coffee table book from Rob. awww Tobacco Pipe's of the Civil War. That will go great with none of the decorations of our house or anybody else's house"

    I stand by my love of large print 'Kramer coffee table books about nature, architecture, religion, or food. I once dropped $175 on a book about Scandinavian architecture and history for my Nana. Did she possibly get EXTRA WET just flickin' those pages?

    YES.

    I once bought a Hubble Book with space photos for one of those secret Santa exchanges at a Christmas party with friends.

    It INFURIATED the person that got it. To this day, people still talk shit about it. They just say “Hubble” and the scandal is known.

    I actually thought it was a more thoughtful gift than the bargain bin DVD bundle of National Lampoons Christmas Vacations, 48 Hours and Planes, Trains and Automobiles that I got. Which is still in its cellophane packaging a decade later.

    Hubblegate! Coffee table books are popular gifts with my friends. better trend than candles, which for some reason were a trend in duh nineties. Typical gift you got from women. for some reason they were given to men too. I got all kinds of candles in the closet ...

    The exact moment in 2020 when Rob realized he's been buying shitty Christmas gifts for years.

    Haha @ that gif

    I looked up that book on amazon 13 yrs later. Still $57.00 + another 30 - 40 for a bottle.

    Will I ever drop $87.00 casually for a boomer relative I might see twice a decade? Nah. They will be dead soon. Fuck them.

    I spent the last few Holidays buying things like classic wooden hand-made LL Bean cushioned winter pull-sleds or toddler sized soap box derby cars from Restoration Hardware, for my nieces and nephews. Stuff that can last.

    If you are an adult still expecting a gift on "Yule" or "Jewish Corporate Christmas" ... you might be the family tard. "Secret Santa" is essentially a holiday game for boring Corporate post-wall fat women office drones who want to infect or destroy any sort of familial bonding.

    Art I'm sort of worried you might be the guy on X-mas or Thanksgiving who rushes into the back-yard or garage and shrieks.. "We are playing Secret Santa! or Cards Against Humanity ya'll!!"

    I'd call you a Med Nigger and blow smoke in your face.

    Your family plays Cards Against Humanity on Thanksgiving???? C’mon son! There’s football on all day long. Whut part of the game is that? If you’re a man and you’re doing anything but eating, drinking and watching football on thanksgiving, well...




    Not that there’s anything wrong with that.
