When we got out of the car at my mother-in-law's in Chincoteague, I noticed her beautiful flower beds. The following is the conversation (sort of) we had...
Me: Oh, Patty! Your flowers are beautiful!
Patty: Thank you, honey. We had to learn what grows here and what doesn't when we planted this year.
Me: I especially love the beach grasses you have in among the flowers! Lovely!
Patty: Honey, those are weeds!
Me: Oh, well...they look good there and *I* would leave them there! ;)
