It’s April Fools Day and in that spirit this thread is for those times when nothing goes right, not even modeling trees. Stop, take a break & regroup. Yes, all of these are real, no fooling. They were found in ordinary locations. Even Mother Nature has off days. Enjoy.

Too much glue when planting


Tree bent while planting


Tree mangled when replanting



Colors like kids crayons



Mistakenly planted broccoli from lunch
