Random thoughts about roadside art, National Parks, historic preservation, philosophy of technology, and whatever else happens to cross my mind.

The black thumb strikes again
I managed to kill another plant this week. I bought some potted zinnias a few days ago at Home Depot, thought they looked really cheerful on the plant stand next to the front door, have been remembering to water them reasonably often -- I do know things dry out fast when the temps are pushing 100 -- but came home today to something that looks mummified.
Maybe I should just concede defeat and invest in gnomes instead of trying to keep something green alive in Atlanta. Hokie, Hokie, Hokie, Hi!
