Annual versus Perenial- sort of matters if Bob is trying to grow it or not



In an attempt to show his girl friend that he did NOT overplant the front yard as he had promised, Bob points to a large 3' x 3' area where nothing has been planted... yet



After many attempts to 'treat' his dry skin with Aloe vera, Bob slowly comes to the conclusion that, despite the claims of many others, this plant is NOT good for his skin



 In anticipation of a once-in-a-lifetime event, Bob prepares to get a good photo of the floral equivalent of a lunar eclipse- when is Moon Flower grows in front of his Sunflower



Being dubiously knighted an 'uber-gardener', Bob answers multiple queries from newbie Davesgarden members who misguidedly seek his wisdom about palms and succulents.... so Bob attempts to answer each question as thoroughly as possible... if the darts dictate so



Running out of planting room in the yard, Bob desperately takes up the patio bricks one at a time

Bob cartoon from his first adventure buying a home of his own



Bob uploads his 100,000th photo to Davesgarden



Due to the nature of the plants he grows, all of Bob's pets must wear saftey glasses



Bob has another one of those horrific nightmares... the ones in which grows flowers



Another cartoon from his earlier palm-obsession days (for those not so horribly obsessed with palms as Bob is, Butia archeri is an incredibly dinky and slow-growing palm most never get to see grow beyond the seedling stage)
