REALLY AWFUL DOING IT RIGHT, AND PLANTING UP – AND I MEAN UP!


(Late entry for the SidevieW weekend theme)

How can you go wrong when you’re doing it right?
With driving in UK or SA you might!
Because in these places one sticks to the left,
Unless of existence you would be bereft!

View from where we banqueted on Saturday - but it was all right if nothing was left!

View from where we banqueted on Saturday – but it was all right if nothing was left!

And doing it right at a banquet can mean,
If you’re to create the politest of scene,
You don’t guzzle all on your plate that you see –
For, doing it right, something left there must be!

Looking up at a garden instead of down - a Klingon style?

Looking up at a garden instead of down – a Klingon style?

On Sunday, House and Garden Show
Showed us some things we didn’t know,
And one we hardly knew at all –
How gard’ning drives one up the wall!

Garden and Home Show 003

Slidy potties for going up a wall.

This Durban system comes complete
With pots and frame for them to seat,
And pump and pipes; so water, when
It trickles down, ’s sent up again!

Garden and Home Show 007

For those who want to sneak onto the playing field at big matches for a really close view.

But this takes things a bit too far,
To have a lawn upon your car!

    Great post Col, would love a wall of plants but suspect they would need a lot of water during a Cape South Easter season.

    I think those wall gardens are going to become much more prevalent as the water resources shrink – interesting concept!!

    That gives a new definition to a “green car”. I wonder how good it is towards the environment… 😉

    Very clever awful rhyme, Col. That’s a magnificent view over to the stadium. I do hate to waste food, so usually eat it all, whether it’s right or not. Seems a silly rule to me. Love that feature wall; definitely right up my street. 🙂

  9. Reblogged this on Kate Shrewsday and commented:
    Col: one of my favourite bloggers in the whole entire world. His day job is writing, and he’s a great composer, but he still finds time for really awful rhymes which generally make my day. This man makes words work for their living. Enjoy the latest episode in the Shrewsday Reblog Festival.

    Well… I’ve seen pics of houses covered like the car – in Ireland I think they were. I, personally, like a wall with spaces left for plants.

    Great car. Fun poem. Doing it right means something left on the plate . . . not chocolate, I hope.
