“To be a gardener, it isn’t enough to love flowers; one must hate weeds.” – Anon.
I’m no gardener, and find flowers to be only so-so, but I do hate weeds.
In the trunk of my car I keep a hoe and a pair of work gloves. The other day, I was talking to a friend in a restaurant parking lot after a meal. I kept getting distracted and finally told him to wait a moment while I got the gloves and pulled up an especially egregious thistle sticking up through asphalt nearby.
