Names are not a small matter in the garden

In Uncategorized on January 1, 2012 at 8:48 pm

“This is a Dalia, and it’s not.” The gardener thinks out loud.

Every Spring it comes up, how he wants to change the flower’s name.

“Much too ornate. It’s a tough fighter.” It just bothers him. “I don’t even like saying it.”  

“How is it your business?” the gardener’s wife works around him in the kitchen. “Let it go already, my God.”

Still, he figures he has the power in his garden.

The issue is finding the right name.

And dealing with all the opinions when it comes up in conversation.
