A bizarre looking Magic Garden kit caught our eye. The box promised that once watered with the enclosed MAGIC solutions the paper garden would begin to blossom within three hours. In just ten it would be fully grown.
Really? How the hell does that happen?
I'm no wiser now, having purchased the Magic Garden, and the box (which lists the product as being made in Taiwan) doesn't give any ingredients away. So I guess I just have to believe in the power of magic. Below you can examine my photographic evidence, taken on Canada Day when we had a day to spare to study the progress of our Magic Garden, in between watching snippetsfrom Corner Gas and Trailer Park Boys marathons.
Magic Garden—the promise of whimsy and wonder for $6.99.
I hope all my fellow Canadians out there had just as magical a Canada Day!
