The Next Contest: Yard Art


Whew. I'm the judge for this contest.

Look at this yard art installation*.

You see thirteen bowling balls arranged in front of a large azalea. One bowling ball hides the opening to a secret cache where I keep my emergency chocolate rations. Which bowling ball, numbering 1 to 13 from the left, covers the secret sealed chocolate vault? Ignore the blue flag near the temporary water faucet. The hurricane blew out my underground watering system and I haven't decided if I want to take up a sod section to have less grass or change how I water.


The first thirteen entrants should guess one number each. The fourteenth comment may begin the gratuitous enthusiasm about how lovely my yard art installation is.


One small prize goes to the correct guess on which ball hides the secret cache.

One small prize goes to the most over the top compliment for my yard artage.


Yours,
St.Casserole

Christo and Jeanne-Claude once did an installation accalimed the world over, it was called running fence, it covered 24.5 miles of california hillside and run into the ocean. i think that Christo and Jeanne-Claude have a thing or two to learn from your "bowling ball alley", simply breath taking!

I have never seen such lovely art. The lines of the bowling balls echo the lines of the meticulously landscaped bed. The colors balance each other out beautifully, and well, I think the chocolate is under the green one-- a smart woman hides her chocolate from others in a place where she can find it quickly. Ant though I am supposed to ignore it, the blue flag lines up beautifully with the green bowling ball, so you can be sure you are on the right path.

Not sure I can get much more over the top...

You know the selection by Brahms.. How lovely is they dwelling place... well think.. how lovely is thy bowling balls. You can plug those into the first line on this video of youtube.

If it wasn't so late, I would conjure up more lines to the piece. Sorry Brahms.... forgive me.

I don't even think I followed the directions correctly... I wasn't one of the first 13 entrants.. so I am a loser...

but I had fun thinking of the song How lovely are thy bowling balls.

St. Cass, my reaction to your yard art is Psalms 19:3--"There is no speech, nor are there words."
