You might be familiar with this conversation...
"I want to expand the back bed."
"What, and take out more grass?"
"Yes, but the grass back there looks horrible anyway."
"So you're going to plant even more plants, and more of my grass is going away."
"But honey, the grass is a pain, and it would look so nice with a purple perennial border and a little height in the background...I'm thinking one of those new hydrangeas. We could put a hosta, your favorite plant, remember? in there too."
"Over my dead body will I let you take away more of my grass."
Does this sound familiar? Maybe? A little bit? Kinda? Variations of this conversation have ensued over the past 12 years as my partner and I have built our garden. In the early days there may have been some stomping from the room and/or tears involved. Maybe. Nowadays? Not so much.
I thought I'd bring up the topic and record it for you for a recent show. Brave, I know. And in the end? It wasn't so heated. We have some humor about it. And it's not like my partner loves the grass. In fact, you might even be on her side after listening to my latest show. Listen in on our friendly discussion of expanding the garden and getting rid of some more grass....
