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.
Cartoon reference number: a291
