What a great idea. Like these metal ones better than the nylon version! When I first opened it I thought it was a sign promoting "pooper scooping"! We are big on that down here. At closer look, I think the idea is planting. More aesthetically pleasing for sure. Enjoyed reading what the artist had to say as well.

I need more coffee to interpret this banner. My first thought was someone was burying a landmine. This, I am sure, is not the intended message.

I'm glad to see I'm not alone in not quite understanding this banner. I just hate it when art is smarter than me. Someone planting something? And someone drinking a slushy?

I don't know the artist, thank goodness. I'd hate to have to show her these comments.

I admit, I had to look at the banner for a minute to figure it out. And I could have found one that was a bit less open to interpretation. What I see is one hand holding a plant just removed from it's pot and the other preparing a hole to plant it.

You guys are a tough crowd.

W,
We are all extremely creative and imaginative and prone to drink. What do you expect???

PS laurie, burying dog poop could be construed as a landmine.

Thanks for the link, Wayne. I was about to ask what it was made of. I'm proud to say that I saw the planting thing. If that's what it really is, that is. ;D

still laughing over V's line about being prone to drink!
