Four years ago I found this Buddha bust at a yard sale. It was cracked,
and I got it for a song. I cut the top of the head off, filled it with
planting medium, stuck a fescue into it, and called it "Punk Buddha"

It was good for a quick joke, but I had more elegant plans for it. After
the fescue dried back I replanted it with Burrow's Tail. It took a bit
over four years to coax it into its present form, but it paid off when it
walked away with the first prize in my garden club's Potted Plant category.

Next spring it'll get a haircut.
