I KNOW THERE ARE TIMES WHEN THE LURE of the garden pulls me outdoors before I change out of my PJs, before I brush my hair, without washing my face. It’s that powerful and seductive a force, indeed, especially with the lawn greening up right now, all verdant and provocative. But I have to say, my dear Andre Jordan, I try to make certain I have my trousers on. Do I sense a pattern in your doodles, a theme of how alcohol figures into horticulture in The Garden According to Andre (and no, I don’t mean for sterilizing pruners):
- There was something about “dandelion wine” and a flight of stairs…
- He asserted this one was for medicinal purposes only. Hmmm….
- And he also named alcohol–vodka, I believe–on the list of required gardening gear.
- I don’t think there’s any explaining away what happened in this one. Hiccup!
As ever with Andre, perhaps it’s best to simply say: Cheers!
