While reading an article about the history of lawns I came across this quote:
Let your lawn be your home’s velvet robe, and your flowers its not too promiscuous decoration.”
-Frank J. Scott (1870)
Perhaps this is where the HOA laws of today come from?
HM, I guess according to Frank, I have too many flowers, what a travesty!
We’ve been trying to take back our lawn here at Chiot’s Run, so I’m we don’t consider our lawn, “the velvet robe” of our home. As for the amount of flowers we have, well, the photos above are just a few of what we have blooming here during the summer. What do you think? Can you have too many flowers?
