The Wildest Stock: July 24, 2015

Poppies sowed themselves among the dahlias; the lawn waved with long grass; giant artichokes towered among roses; a fringed carnation flowered among the cabbages; while the gentle tapping of a weed at the window had become, on winter’s nights, a drumming from the sturdy trees and thorned briars which made the whole room green in summer.

To the Lighthouse (141) 

"Then make your garden rich in gillyvors,
And do not call them bastards. "

The Winter's Tale 4.4
