Gardening cartoon – a cartoon about data-obsession and looking forward to spring

measuring spring buds cartoon

Garden cartoon.
Cartoon about obsessive data collection

Cartoon showing a gardener measuring the length of a bud on a tree and determining the progress of the seasons as a result.

This is a cartoon about people who feel a need to measure things as a way of feeling that they are in control of their lives and environment.

This cartoon isn’t a criticism of the data collecting urge. After all, where would we be without the people who do it? It’s due to them that we can predict what will happen in the future (The man in the cartoon is precisely predicting the time till the arrival of spring).
A cartoon about control freaks, creating order, psychological personality types.

Christmas cartoon – reindeer eating garden vegetables

Christmas cartoons - reindeer eating garden vegetables

A Christmas gardening cartoon from my selection of Christmas cartoons

A man looking out of his window on Christmas morning to see a reindeer eating his garden vegetables

Cartoon of a gardener seeing Santa’s reindeer eating his brussels sprouts

A cartoon about Santa Claus’s reindeer, Father Christmas delivering Christmas presents.
Part of the joke is that although Santa’s reindeer is on an extraordinary mission (delivering Christmas presents around the world) it is engaged in a mundane activity. It is the mundane activity that the man notices, rather than the extraordinary occurrence of Santa’s reindeer in his garden. He is obviously more concerned about his garden vegetables than he is interested in the magic of Christmas
