Courtesy of Old House Gardens e-mail newsletter, you might enjoy these bulb related Doonesbury cartoons!

Laughing with Bulbs: Doonesbury's Zonker

Even Doonesbury's Zonker Harris is planting bulbs this fall. For six days of laughs, go to

Click the "Next" tab at the top of each comic to see them all.

I enjoyed them so much, I just had to pass them on!

Where are they on the page?...or did the page change since you posted?

The link below goes to a page with a strip, but I don't see anything about bulbs and the next doesn't work for me.

hmmmm....just call me challenged.

Thanks, linnea56!
Guess you are having the same problem as I. My browser will not load the URL that linnea56 posted, instead, I get today's strip; ?uc_full_date=20091008.
Had to click on the PREVIOUS link and scroll back to; ?uc_full_date=20090928 to see the first of the series of 6 cartoons and then advance through them, by clicking on NEXT.

I've seen some of them in our paper and they are funny.

Go to the current days strip and then just change the date at the end of the URL in the address bar of your browser. You'll jump right to the correct one. Must drive you mad to toggle back 2 weeks worth.

Oh, I'm sorry it turned out to be so difficult! When I used the link from the newletter it went right to the bulb ones.
