XKCD Garden

This is a strange XKCD, but also a little bit of fun.

The page loads blank with the ability to add up to three grow lights. You can position them on the screen, change the angle of the light, change the light focus (wider and lighter or narrow and brighter). Apparently you can also change the light colour but I’m not clever enough to have found that out.

After a little while things start to grow on the screen. Mine started with a tree trunk, then a bird bath, and when I came back recently more stuff had arrived – see below

I’ll check back in later today and see if there’s a 5 o’Clock shadow on the way.

Surf the Dream is a blog that has been running since the mid 2000's when it started on BlogSpot. Over the years it's been rebranded as justinavery.me (now my resume) and JaveryDesign.com (which now redirects back to this site).

I offer consultation services through Simple Things, produce a range of educational pocket notebooks, write about the Universe and run a responsive design and a RWD Weekly Newsletter
