“She watched the early-morning sun filter out from the trees still glistening from frost, and imagined the way here perennial beds would be thick and wild with beauty in just a few months. And her zinnias and sunflowers and trumpet vine would cover the fence and keep Patsy out.
The messy look. That is just how Patsy described it last summer. After Elizabeth dug up the boxwoods and hollies with their geometric precision, their obedient square ugliness, she planted daisies, black-eyed Susans, coneflowers, and phlox. She planted zinnias and cosmos that she had grown from seed. The border had exploded in color and texture. The plants had flowered wild and strong and generous. Every morning, Elizabeth had fingered the velvety petals.”
Mindy Friddle, The Garden Angel

“What about you, Cutter? What is it you like to do? Somehow I think serving pancakes and writing about funerals is not your life's ambition."
"There's nothing wrong with good honest work. And it is hard work living the life you want, especially if people keep interfering, trying to take it from you.”
Mindy Friddle, The Garden Angel

Clean up your own mess. Your mama don't live here
