We're taking a bit of a breather while the world rearranges its underpants. Meanwhile, the other blog is here.

Gardener's World

Bronwyn is borrowing Frog's desk while her corner of the office is being discombobulated in the name of progress.

"Have you weighed this desk up?" she asks.

"How do you mean?"

"Well... The chair's been lowered so that you can't see him when he's sat at his desk. Then there's all the piles of stuff in boxes arranged around it. And look at the stuff on here!"

It's true. He's even got the pot plants in various stages of propagation. Not to mention a dibber, a trowel and a ball of green twine.

What we have here is an in-office garden shed.

All he needs is the kettle on a gas ring.

Reminds me of Robert Frost's Poem "Mending Wall":
Something there is that doesn't love a wall,/ That sends the frozen-ground-swell under it/ --
last line: "He says again: 'Good fences make good neighbors.'
Definitely your colleague is not hatching a Zen-Garden :-)

I suspect him of being a plant.

Pat said...

Where is he?

Kevin Musgrove said...

Britta: :-)

Madame DeF: ah...

Pat: nil desp. he's spent most of the week working with nurseries and playgroups.

Do you have any pictures of his "desk" to share with us?

Happy Frog and I said...

In my experience of the workplace, the more 'shed like' the desk, the more technical the worker. I wish my desk was more shed like!

Kevin Musgrove said...

Lynne: do you know, I haven't! Why ever not? I'll have to remedy that.

Happy Frog & You: he'll like "technical!"
