Pretty in Pink

P1000880 (1024x767)Most plant and seed catalogues come directly to my home for private delectation.  A few are directed to work and are passed onto me with little comment except perhaps a passing remark about the picture on the front cover.  Earlier this week Bosswoman greeted me, clutching one of these tomes of temptation saying “I have marked a few pages”.   You may recall that The Lady of the House is indisposed at the moment (after her wrestling accident) and has a little more time on her hands (sorry hand) than usual.   “Of course Your Ladyship” I replied, my face in rictus grin whilst my soul sobbed in anguish “let us look at which tasteful specimens you have chosen”.  You will be pleased to hear that at this point I need not resort to innuendo or masked remarks at the risk of offending someone who pays my wages; each and every one were wonderful choices – cosmos, lavatera and penstemon, a woman after my own heart.  They were also all pink.  It will help to balance out my dark ways.

    Well, pink has its place in the garden and those were good choices. Sometimes I plant a few Cosmos in a container, they are very cheerful in any colour.

  3. I never thought of it but pink IS the antidote for darkness.

    Well, that was only after a quick glance, no doubt I could find a few orange specimens – in fact I distinctly remenber drawing your attention to a few orange tomatoes. But anyway how rude to tell everyone that you dread my suggestions – I am hurt. What we need is more ballet skirts, as any fule kno. And it isn’t me who uses the verb ‘to hack’ either!

    • I thought I was being very complimentary! And you know that I always obey, always, even when it comes down to ballet skirts. And yes, we all know who the “hacker” in the gang is …. a clue his name begins with “boss” and ends with “man”.
