I now have a turtle sticking its head into a cactus, which looks very uncomfortable.

Yes, that's just plain wrong.
There are plenty of molpies, though, that makes up for it a bit.

Well, first you need to be able to grow both a Megan and a Cueball. Then I assume sandcastles will appear as a result of that combination.

Update on the obelisk thing. It's actually an Atlantean obelisk that appears under the blue light.

Has anyone actually SEEN any objects appear? I only see changes when I return to that tab after reading the discussion on this tab (Firefox). Is it possible that the script senses when there's no focus on the garden tab, and only then adds things?

I thought the same at first, but then saw Cueball actually appear at one point.

Sadly, even though Megan was already there too, they did not build a castle (at least before the tab reloaded).

I'm also finding that things are indeed slowing down as they day goes on. New things don't add/grow as fast as a few hours ago.
In Svithjod, there stands a rock. It is 100 miles high and 100 miles wide. Once every 1000 years a little bird comes to this rock to sharpen its beak. One time, I changed just the last sentence of this signature, and lots of you noticed. Image

I have it open on the top half of my second monitor which is vertical. My octopus showed up while I was working on email tickets on my other monitor.

Has anyone else gotten Beret Guy? He's apparently having a soak in the little pond on the left, in the company of an octopus. Blue light in that area.

I've also got a huge tree that keeps growing more branches and leaves. It looks like there are a couple of horizontal beams in there, too - maybe a tree house in the making?

I tried three lights, first with some overlap, now with none.
Leftmost all the way to the blue side: no growth.
Middle kept in the middle (white): trees, grass, a torii gate / pavilion (?), some sort of tall spike thing.
Right all the way to the red side: a couple of cacti and a leafless twisted treelike thing.

At 9:30 it reset to the initial state.

I haven't been watching when vegetation appears. Is it sudden or does it grow over time?

Yep - I've been messing with the tree, highlighting the different sets of branches and leaves, and seen a new set of leaves pop into existence.

I was having the same problem until I created a bookmark for it, though I think now I'm having the problem that nothing is growing anymore, and there isn't much there right now. =/

A cactus popped up while I was doing something in another window on my other screen - the change drew my attention, so I'm pretty sure I caught it. Though the garden reset after a while, so I stopped bothering.

I'll have to try that bookmark trick. I keep losing my gardens.

Megan with arms raised just appeared at the intersection of blue, green, and yellow light. Maybe she thinks it's a rave?

Someone in an earlier post said that the browser's "Back" button would take you back to the previous state of the garden. I haven't tried it, since mine seems to be pretty stable, and I don't want to jinx it.

Woah. I only just realized that you can trim items you don't want out of your garden. Did I miss an earlier post about that somehow or was that already general knowledge?

If you click on an object, you can delete it with the Red "X" button.

This may also give you a clue of something that may appear soon that may be so "small" it hasn't shown up yet: if you click around at random, the red selection circle sometimes shows up over a patch of nothing, possibly detailing where the computer has already decided to "place" something but it hasn't appeared yet.

This also didn't work for me in Chrome. Neither Back or Refresh brings back the garden, which seems to reload itself independent of the page. When I try a bookmark, the bookmark doesn't save the current state of my garden. The garden resets and the bookmark reflects that.

I'm trying a garden in Firefox, too, and so far it seems stable. But I just keep growing... rocks.

Sure enough! Just got a cat and another turtle a few minutes after trimming some things.

Trimming is good for your garden!

I seem to have a black thumb--though I did get a tuft of grass once. It figures; weeds are all that grow in my garden at home too.

Wait, I always thought you're not supposed to be able to post images until your post count is over three (?) or similar, certainly not on your first post. Is this a change to the rules, or a bug in the forum?

Maybe a moderator has to approve it? It is a comment in a thread for a comic that will be different for each person, so I don't see why they would restrict a single image of it.

I know mine is still waiting on approval, but I had to give an imgur link.

My Chrome garden has gotten rather dramatic.

Meanwhile, UFOs began silently approaching the obelisk...

My IE Garden has three Cueball images, and seven, yes *seven*, octopuses.

Must be using lots of blue light!

Also, the Cueballs are actually Octopuses/Octopi too. In fact, all things that grow here are:

In Svithjod, there stands a rock. It is 100 miles high and 100 miles wide. Once every 1000 years a little bird comes to this rock to sharpen its beak. One time, I changed just the last sentence of this signature, and lots of you noticed. Image

I can't fathom how you people are getting all of these wonderful things. The most interesting thing yet I've gotten is a birdbath that sprouted a tuft of grass.
