My Physocarpus opulifolius Poses a Question for TLLG Blog Readers


The comic strip posted above today's blog entry, as you may recognize, dear reader, is from Blondie. For, as you may recall, various "segments" of Blondie have appeared within this blog in previous posts that you may refer to by clicking here as well here and here. Meanwhile, the strip posted at the top of today's entry was at the suggestion of my Physocarpus opulifolius AKA Coppertina Tree.
Ten days ago, on November 2nd, my Physocarpus opulifolius's flower, whom you may recognize from the picture (below)

exercised its bragging rights of having been chosen for my The LLG's Facebook's profile photo (which you may also recognize but for your convenience is posted below),

by authoring a blog post announcing his "achievement", and you may refer to that blog entry by clicking here.

In any event, this morning, when I was watering my urban (New York City) garden, one of my  trees, my Physocarpus opulifolius, which my lovely aforementioned flower appears on during the months of May and June, asked me about my "branding", as it related to my promotional materials. He pointed out I had not only "been using an image of one of the flowers from one of my Paeonia suffruiticosa AKA Tree Peony, as the cover photograph for my online brochure , but I had included a smaller version of the same image in the upper righthand corner of each of the pages within that brochure; and, he felt I should replace it with The LLG Facebook's profile photograph, to be consistent with 'branding'", a term, yours truly is not endeared towards.

While my Physocarpus opulifolius knew that the latter use of the image (posted below),

of one of my Paeonia suffruiticosa's flowers was placed for my readers to identify the specific pages they had "landed on", he felt that I should switch the images so my clients would have something with which to identify, and he feels that this would be the profile photograph that is on TLLB's Facebook Page. Therefore, he wanted me to pose this question to my followers here as well as Facebook, in the event, folks don't answer FB questions. (He feels folks answer them more when posed within blogs and he equated his observation with Dagwood and Herb's "encounter" shown in the comic strip segment at the top of todays blog entry.)

I have never posed a question on Facebook — nor have I answered one — like Dagwood, but for the sake of my Physocarpus opulifolius, I will pose it here and on FB:

Do you agree with my Physocarpus opulifolius that TLLG's Facebook profile photo, featuring an image of his flower, should also be used within the online brochure pages as the "place-identifer" (I'd keep the image of the Paeonia suffruiticosa on my on-line brochure's cover page) as it relates to branding? For now, I have made the switch within the online brochure  (click here to view one of the pages), but it could easily revert back to how I had it, using my Paeonia suffruiticosa.

Please keep in mind that my Physocarpus opulifolius may not totally have my "branding" interest at heart, as he has always been a little envious of my Paeonia suffruiticosa; and he expressed these feelings in a blog entry that he authored this past May, on Cinco de Mayo, which you may refer to by clicking here.

But before my Physocarpus opulifolius gets into a he said/ she said comparison game, I'll leave you with his question, Do you agree with my Physocarpus opulifolius that TLLG Facebook profile photo, featuring an image of his flower, should also be used within the online brochure pages as the "place-identifer" (I'd keep the image of the Paeonia suffruiticosa on my online brochure's cover page) as it relates to branding?

  1. I love my Physocarpus opulifolius dearly, but alas, it will not ultimately be my new logo or profile picture. Please refer to the blog post that has the update via this link: http://bit.ly/tJcmq7

  2. FYI from TLLG: As of today, May 11, 2012, my Physocarpus opulifolius has one less worry re any "competition" he may feel re images featuring my Paeonia suffruiticosa. This is because my on-line brochure (which is one "place" that featured the Paeonia suffruiticosa flower) has been removed. I took it down in anticipation of the shutting down of Mobieme, where my brochure has been "living" while it "waits" to be downloaded.

    In any event, it seems my Physocarpus opulifolius has resolved some of his jealousy issues as evident by the post he authored here on TLLg this past Thursday, May 10th 2012 which you may refer to by scrolling within this blog, or by going to the following link:
