Quote of the Day: Agatha Christie

December 11th, 2018

“To be fair, he was attached to his employers, humored their fancies in horticulture (so far as no actual hard work was involved) but vegetable he knew to be the real stuff of life; a nice Savoy, or a bit of curly kale; flowers were fancy stuff such as ladies liked to go in for, having nothing better to do with their time. he showed his affection by producing presents of the aforementioned asters, salvias, and lobelia edging, and summer chrysanthemums.”

Agatha Christie in The Mirror Crack’d from Side to Side

I always get a kick out of gardening references in books, Agatha Christie books are no exception. Perhaps she enjoyed gardening, perhaps it was just her British roots that made her mention gardening and plants in many of her books, either way, I always enjoy those passages.

This one was quite humorous to me, I like both flowers and vegetables, but vegetables definitely take top priority for me.

Do you prefer growing vegetables, flowers, or do you find a happy medium between them both?
