doodle by andre: it lives!
EVEN AFTER 30ISH YEARS OF CLOSE ATTENTION to such matters, I have to say I am still surprised how many things in the garden make it year after year, seemingly in spite of the forces at work that would try to make it otherwise. Apparently Andre Jordan the Doodler is also increasingly aware of just how heroic plants are. All that’s missing from this doodle, Andre, is a medal on the chest of the survivor–although it might backfire and pull him down into the mud with his fallen friends. (Need a bigger dose of Andre this week? His doodles are all always right here for the enjoying.)
