Hi, Dr. Hortfreud.
I see that you’ve come for a final session this fall.
Yes, I mowed the lawn today, probably for the last time this season.
That’s good, Carol. Now let’s begin this session with a little word association. I’ll say a word or phrase and you say the first thing that comes to mind. Are you ready?
I guess so.
Okay. First word is “frosting”.
What was on the leaves this morning.
Not cake? Okay, let’s try another word. “Short.”
What the lawn should be going into winter.
I see. How about “winter”?
A good time for a gardener to rest up for spring.
Interesting. Let’s mix it up a bit. “Catalog.”
I’m starting see a definite trend here. How about “TV”.
There are not enough gardening shows on TV.
Let’s try one more word. “Inside.”
Carol, are you ever not thinking about the garden and plants?
Is that a rhetorical question, Dr. Hortfreud, or do you really want an answer?
I’m not sure yet, Perhaps someone else can come up with a word that you don’t associate with gardening.
